    Great video!

    When I was aboard Aluminum Overcast, there was an older gentleman that was quietly taking in the sights by the waist section. We hit turbulence and he started to fall and I caught him. He grinned as he said thanks and then continued "I never could stay upright in these damned things! All the guys ribbed me about it, so don't you start, bud!" and laughed. I couldn't help but laugh with him. I noticed at the time, even though he was laughing, he had tears in his eyes.

    I found out later that he survived 30 missions over Germany as a waist gunner in a B-17 and that was his first time back up in one after nearly 65 years...
