Heck, my Uncle Gordon got paid to be in the left seat of a B-17, may he rest in peace. He flew round trips to Germany, but he must not have liked Germany much.
He never stopped...

My bucket list is simple:

1.Keep Breathing
2.Keep Breathing
3.Keep Breathing
4.Keep Breathing
5.Keep Breathing
6.Keep Breathing
7.Keep Breathing.

I was lucky to get a few flights in chuckie , B-17, and there is NOTHING that can compare... i wish I could do it again, soon

I have long since given up on ever being able to do some of the things I would have put in my bucket list ....I will settle for good memories and thanks for what I have been able to do

I was able to take a ride in a b-17 and it was awesome.I'm not so sure it wouldv'e been such a great ride in 1942? I wonder what the nose art and name of the IMBOC b-17 would be?
1)Travel the pacific coast highway
2)Take the willys down route 66
3)Take dad to normady and surrounding areas
4)Hook up with my brother and my boys at the mustang anniversary show in Chalotte next year
5)Have the ability to take care of everyone that has taken care of me
6)go on a ride along at Monaco in an F1 car
7)left vacant for anything else that comes up
