At age 92, Bob Spatz had one just one unfulfilled wish.
He wanted to ride in a B-29 bomber like the ones he worked on as a mechanic during World War II.
Although he hasn’t quite reach that goal yet, Spatz came close Saturday when he took a 30-minute ride above Wichita in a WWII-era B-24, which his relatives said was the closest available aircraft that provides rides to members of the public.
The rest of the story is here.
