WWII History at the Airport

Flatlander posted here

My son and I went out and looked at the bombers. We took the inside tour of the B25 but the B17 was not open at the time. We asked if it was going to be opened up and the gentleman said not anymore today, but if we came back at 7 today he would be doing the preflight check and let my son on then. He was true to his word and more. He let my son climb in the pilot seat, open the bomb bay doors, climb on the wing and measure the fuel and even opened the ball turret to let him get a good look in there. Spent around an hour in and on the plane. He was one happy 8 year old.

Anyone else get a chance this weekend to see the planes?
