Memphis Belle...

I know that the B-17F was named the "Memphis Belle". But does anyone
knows how many planes that were named Memphis Belle? Because I just
purchased some decals of a B-1B of that name. Was there any aircraft
named this?

Yes, I've seen pictures of a B-1B with the name.
I've also see a Vietnam Era F-105 with the name Memphis Belle 2.
I doubt there is any way of knowing for sure how many aircraft have carried this famous name. Probably dozens since WW2.

When we were stationed in Blytheville, Arkansas, 1965-1967, the mayor of Memphis came up to christen a B-52 the "Memphis Belle II" Scott There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Mental Illness."

There was a F-105, an F-15E, a B-1 to name a few. I thinkl the F-15E was named #12 or 13 at Robert Morgan's insistance.

An F-105D IIRC was Memphis Belle II.
