    Nice! Zack, was that you in the nose or in the bomb bay? If yes, there are certainly some outstanding benefits working for EAA.

    This message was sent to EAA last night. It is an amazing coincidence in timing!

    Hello,
    My name is Steve Holder. I am from Dayton, Ohio but grew up in Green Bay. My 90 year old father,Harry Holder passed away last week in Phoenix. Dad spent 30 years of his retirement in Green Bay. At his request Dad was flown to Green Bay on Saturday Nov 23, 2013 to be buried alongside of my mother. Dad was a WWII veteran who was a B-17 mechanic in England at Nuthampstead. He was a member of the 398 Air Force. His funeral service is Monday morning Nov 25, 2013 at Resurrection Catholic Church in Allouez (Green Bay).

    Our family was thrilled to hear about and see the B-17 flyover at Lambeau field today. We thought it was so ironic that the flyover take place on the day before Dad is laid to rest. Dad was a huge Packer fan and aviation expert (aerospace engineer for 30 years) he wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Our immediate family has arrived from 5 different states to attend Dad`s funeral. We are all very grateful to the EAA,the Packers,Pilots and all who made this flyover possible.

    Best Regards, Steve Holder


    It is all the more incredible because EAA's B-17 carries the markings of the 398th Bomb Group, 8th Air Force.
