[Editor’s note: I took a ride in the B-24, and it was a highlight of my life to see and hear a little of what Dad experienced during the war. Most surprising to me was how the uniquely fascinating smell of that grand old bird is so different in flight than on the ground. It was touching to see the faces of veterans taken back in time, and the emotions of other “kids” on down to great grandkids.]
