COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Crawford Hicks | 509th Bomb Squadron, 356th Bomb Group, 1st Air Division - Army Air Corps

7:17   |   The first time he saw the B-17, Crawford Hicks thought there was no way he could fly that thing. It was huge, but with patient instructors and lots of practice, he became proficient at it. The last stop in his training cycle was in Texas, where he learned the art of the bomb run.
