 Bill Howard

The look on Bill's face says it all! Recently, one of 1083's WWII veteran members Bill Howard, age 91, received a very special gift. It was a front seat flight in a 1938 Stearman bi-plane. You see, Bill had flown a Stearman 69 years earlier form Lancaster, CA. to Orangeburg, S.C., in Dec. 1944. He was also a flight instructor during the war. Thanks, Bill, for your service to our country and your contributions to Chapter 1083!!
