Went out to the City airport about 12 years or so ago when the only flying B-24 left in the world stopped in for a display. What a tough and beautiful airplane! When they fired up those big recip engines it brought a big smile to my face.

Those missions they flew over the heavily defended Ploesti oil fields were brutal……so many heroes from that war……so many soldiers and airmen who never came home.
