WWII B-17 pilot Dwight Stevens will share his many experiences flying with the U.S. Army Air Force, 95th Bomb Group, based out of Horham, England. Dwight flew more than thirty missions throughout Europe, over Germany, and was selected to fly co-pilot beside General Keller on a “Special Mission” to Russia. They were hit sixty times in the fuselage before landing in Poultava, Ukraine. Yet that was not the only time Dwight’s aircraft had to limp back to a friendly base. Educational and entertaining, Dwight will leave a lasting impression of the hardships of war fought in the skies.
 
Presented by Dwight Stevens, WWII Veteran.
