Apogee has never looked better


With apologies to KingDL1, I think I now have the best picture of Apogee Stadium, ever.

In Adrian Lewis's History of WWII class, we had a older gentleman that was auditing the course. It was a night class, and one evening, Dr. Lewis turned over the lectern to the man. For the next hour and a half, he recounted his experience as an 18 yr old tail gunner in a B-17 over Germany. He spoke modestly of his combat experiences, but I still fondly remember his talk.

Among the most interesting comments... Condoms were use to urinate in on long flights, the dropped earthward.

My dad was trained as a waist gunner and crew Chief on a B-17. What's a crew chief? He's the one that, after wheels-up, got to go fix anything mechanical that goes wrong. Including standing on the cat walk between the bomb racks and kicking a bomb loose that got stuck. Makes for a nice view.
