Ken Heath poses with a photo album filled with World War II-era images of his brother, Bill, on Oct. 24 at his Spokane Valley home. Bill Heath flew only seven missions as a B-17 bombardier and perished with his crew during a daylight raid on Bremen, Germany, in October 1943.

After seeing the photo at left in a book about B-17 bombers and their WWII missions over Europe, Ken Heath became inspired to learn more about his brother, Bill, a B-17 bombardier who died in action on a daylight raid.
