    Be sure to watch the video (click on the big picture at the top of the article). He is at the Museum of Flight one day a week talking to folks in front of the B-17 on display. Great opportunity to meet a true hero if you live in the area. At 95, I can't imagine he has too many Summers left.

  • Aros/Todd... thank you for this! I went to the Museum of Flight when I was in Seattle, but rather unbelievably I never got around to going to the Boeing factory. I will return, however. :D
