The National Transportation Safety Board dispatched an investigator earlier today to the scene of a crash of a vintage B-17 owned by the Liberty Foundation. The aircraft, dubbed the Liberty Belle, had seven on board and allegedly experienced a fire inflight and crashed about four miles from Aurora Airport in Illinois. No injuries have been reported so far, the board states.
