DAYTON, Ohio --
Plans call for this artifact to be displayed near the B-17F Memphis Belle™ as part of the new strategic bombardment exhibit in the WWII Gallery, which opens to the public on May 17, 2018. Electrically-heated shoe inserts used to combat the bitter cold, which dropped to as low as -50°F at high altitude (20-30,000 feet).
