My son and I, about 12 years ago, did a walk through of that B-17 in Klamath Falls, Oregon. We both remember almost every detail. Each of us manning a waist gun and giving imaginary 109's the business. I am deeply saddened. May the families of those who lost their lives be able to find comfort in the lives they lived and the love they gave.

very sad. Not many around either. Its not just the human toll that is heart-breaking but the fact that another piece of priceless history is gone as well. thoughts and prayers are with those families affected
