This is really a great story. A local veteran was a tail gunner in the B-17 in World War II. His family hired the B-17 “Sentimental Journey” to fly up to Sedona this morning and they surprised the veteran with a private tour of the plane and a private flight around Sedona.
After the crew was done with the private tour and flight they stayed for public tours and flights. Sentimental Journey is from the Arizona Wing of the Commemorative Air Force and is based and Mesa’s Falcon Field.
Here is a video of the B-17 and an RV at Sedona this morning:
