I’ve been to see this beautiful aircraft. They allowed me to sit in the pilot’s seat and even close the bombay doors! Very, very amazing piece of rare history. I just want to say thanks to EAA and to keep ‘er flying!

Political Correctness Saturates eveywhere....These Folks, even the Host pilot ,couldn't bring himself to use the word MEN to describe the CrewMEN,he used the Gender Neutral Liberally Correct Term,"CrewMembers", a term never used in WW2,and he also used the nondescript word "People" to describe the Airmen...How about we give the MEN of the Airforce in WW2 the Credit they Deserve, and not Neutralize them to the Younger Generation .

My grandfather served as a B-24 waist gunner over Europe during WWII, my father served in the USAF during the Vietnam era, and I served in the USAF during the Desert Storm era. The use of "crew members" and "people" is totally fine with me and I also have huge respect for the over 1,000 women who flew military aircraft during WWII (including the B-17) in non-combat roles. Their contributions were invaluable to the war effort.
