Re: Colins Foundation B-17 crash Bradley Airport 1
I was scheduled to take a flight in that very aircraft last fall at an airport near me in MA. The flights for that weekend were cancelled as the aircraft required an engine change and wouldn't be back in time. I made reservations for another flight for a couple of weeks later at Westchester County / White Plains (NY) airport. It was something I really wanted to do, as my father few 33 missions in a B-17. I knew that it was riskier than taking a commercial flight, but it was very important to me. It was an amazing experience, and I'm glad I did it. Would I do it again? Probably not. But, as others have said, it's a personal choice. Regardless of the cause / fault, the crash was very, very tragic and sobering. My prayers go out to the families of those who were injured and killed.
