My dear pal Frank was 91 when this was made at the First Baptist Church in Cedartown. About a year before Frank died the family took away his car keys. Frank was not upset as he knew old age was taking hold. One day I was taking him to a church function and I asked him if he thought he could still take a B-17 off? He said he belived he could, but he would have to have some help making the landing!
I believe he could!
