    70 views and no comments? Good, bad, dumb, great? I really got a kick out of it when I first saw it on TV.

    My brother and I signed up for the EAA B-17 fantasy weekend in Oshkosh this fall.
    Final thing we do is fly in the grand lady for 20-min. Can't wait!
    Our Dad was a mechanic on B-17's in the 8th Air Force during WWII in England.
    Got to take a pic in the left seat.

    There was a woman who used to work for me whose father was a WWII B-25 pilot. The A/C he used to fly was restored a few years back and he was invited to Oshkosh to fly in it. I don't know if he got any actual seat time or not, but she said it was one of the highlights of his life.
