Memphis Belle movie stars reunite during the 2009 Warriors & Warbirds Airshow! Tune in Monday morning for a special interview with actor Matthew Modine on Warbird Radio LIVE!

SATURDAY- For the first time in nearly 20 years actor Matthew Modine and B-17 N37036 (“The Movie – Memphis Belle”) were together again.  In 1989, N37036 flew to England to play the staring role as the Memphis Belle and Modine signed on to play the part of pilot Robert Morgan.  It was while filming that Modine actually received flight instruction in 036 from the real Robert Morgan.  Saturday was the first time Modine had seen 036 since filming the movie in England.  Modine tells Warbird Radio he was in town (Monroe, NC) filming a movie and heard 036 was at the airport.  While visiting the airshow Modine graciously signed autographs and even took the opportunity to meet with a WWII Veteran & B-17 pilot who was touring the plane before him.

Modine shares more about the making of the Memphis Belle movie and flying 036 with pilot Robert Morgan on Monday’s Warbird Radio LIVE!
