The Loveland Reporter-Herald newspaper did a great article on this. BillS, HowardA, RobP, and I flew 14 people up to Gilette to catch rides back on the bombers. What fun! I got to fly back with the B17... awe-inspiring.

  My Bo N1541W and Howard's C210 N93974 at Gilette with the bombers. N222AB, Bob the Baron, also ferried but headed home to beat the weather coming in. Riders are briefed for the B17 flight. B24 riders being briefed. B17 about to depart Gilette.

  Awesome! Flying back to FNL behind the B17... humbling to be in the sky with these pieces of living history.
