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. These .50-cal. rounds were found under the bombardier compartment of the Memphis Belle after it came back to the U.S.
