    My father in law flew B17s in WWII. He didn't talk about it often, but when he did he told stories that made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

    yeah it was neat and sad where they had the explosion that killed the seaman.

    They told us they keep it ready and can be called back into service at any time because it has all the current weapon systems.
