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.

Lt Col Robert Kratz, a 455th BG B-24 bombardier who flew 52 combat missions, was holding this cap when a fragment passed through it.
