B17 At Boca Airport


For those who have never seen WW2 bombers, you should not miss the opportunity. There are very few you can see, and only a couple that fly.  A few vets that flew in them show up as well to tell their stories.  The Collings Foundation flies a B17 and a B24 to 110 cities every year to display the planes.  I go every year – actually flew on the B17 on year.  My Dad flew 25 missions on a B17.  Started in the ball turret.  Got a Purple Heart as a tail gunner.  I encouraged our students to take a look (for a little extra credit).  Ten took me up on it.  One brought her kids and said it was fantastic.  The faculty for our design class (me and Dr. Meeroff also went.  So we are all included below.  Thanks to everyone that went.  Thanks to the Collings Foundation for this opportunity.  See  you new year!
