Certain aircrafts serve as traveling museums meant to offer a more personal and in-depth experience with history. Organizations under the oversight of the Federal Aviation Administration are able to fly enthusiasts in actual planes from the WWII era like the B-17. In Connecticut, the B-17 flight backfired miserably, and the passengers were tragically lost in front of their loved ones. Airmen who fought during WWII often visit their vehicles to reminisce or say goodbye, meaning that families and veterans alike were affected by the crash. This week’s tragedy weighs heavily on us all.
