Williams honors Burnet's "Belle" on House floor

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Roger Williams, R-Austin, took to the House floor Wednesday evening to recognize the famed Bluebonnet Belle C47 Skytrain, which has been in use since 1944 and crashed Saturday, July 21, at Burnet Municipal Airport's Kate Craddock Field in Burnet while attempting to take off for an air show in Wisconsin.

“Mr. Speaker, today I want to recognize the famed Bluebonnet Belle C47 Skytrain in Burnet, Texas, that I represent. The Bluebonnet Belle was designed and built in 1944. It flew more than 75 missions during World War II to carry cargo, passengers, and evacuate causalities,” Williams said from the podium.
