The local Aviation Historical Society assembled Tuesday, Nov. 18, for its monthly meeting at the Macon County Airport. Featured speaker for the gathering was World War II bomber pilot, Dick Moulton, who captivated the audience with reminiscences of his experiences in Europe as a B- 17 Flying Fortress pilot. He intertwined his own memories of the war with log entries of his 45 bombing missions over France and Germany.

After graduating from his Army Air Corps Aviation Cadet training in December 1943, Moulton tasted his first war-time experience in June 1944 as co-pilot of a B- 17 bomber. His first assignment took him into Germany on a combat mission to bomb a German airfield. His plane was to drop a salvo of 18 250# bombs, but due to mechanical malfunction, the bombs dropped one-at-a-time instead of the all-atonce plan, missing the intended target.
