    I'm saddened to hear of those killed and injured in the crash of the Nine o Nine. They undoubtedly were very excited to be able to fly on the old war bird.
    When I heard, early yesterday of a crash of a B-17, I hurriedly searched for the name of the plane hoping it wasn't the "Sentimental Journey" a B-17 that my son and I had the privilege of flying on several years ago.
    My condolences to the families of those involved.

    Prayers for the families and Collings Foundation.

    I was stunned when I saw the breaking news.

    My oldest son got to go up in that bomber a couple of years ago.

    In August of this year he went up in their P-40 when they visited the Purdue Airport in W. Lafayette, Indiana.

    We got to meet a lot of the pilots and crew.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of those who lost theri lives and those who were injured. I understand the loss of 909 leaves only 17 of these Super Fortresses left flying.
