IamA WWII veteran B-17 bomber pilot from the European Theater, as well as Korea and Vietnam, back again, AMA!
My short bio: Hello Reddit! Back again here with my dad, we did this a couple of years ago. We'll be here for an hour or so to answer any questions (he'll answer, I'll type). Here's the link to the previous AMA we did: https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/13oyuz/iama_wwii_veteran_bomber_pilot_of_b17s_in_the/
Here's his history: Iama retired USAF pilot who flew missions as a bomber, transport, and tanker pilot in WWII, Vietnam, and the Korean War. My first mission was bombing just beyond Omaha beach on D-Day (June 6, 1944). I flew 33 missions in 60 days during the war. Some other notable things I did: I flew Lyndon B. Johnson (when he was still President of the Senate) and the then Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn, and flew the last plane out of Saigon (as far as I know) at the end of the Vietnam War.
I also grew up during the great depression (born 1923) so can answer any questions about that too. Yesterday was also my birthday! I turned 92. AMA!
Here's an imgur album of some interesting photos from his past: http://imgur.com/a/5mXT4
As an aside, I (his son) will be filming this AMA session and posting it to /r/videos at some point in the next few weeks after I edit it together.

Edit: Ok, that's it for us! Thanks everyone for the great questions. My dad had a good time again answering these. I have some footage of him answering them and will get around to editing a video in the next few weeks, aiming to post on r/videos and maybe as an edit here. Cheers!
Edit 2: Wow! I'm surprised that this blew up so much. Thank you all so much for your interest and response! I'll be showing this to my dad and he'll be blown away. I sincerely apologize to all of you with unanswered questions, I was only able to have my dad do this AMA for a few hours yesterday. I unfortunately don't live super close to my dad and had to go back to work today. If we do this again I may try to schedule the AMA ahead of time. Thanks again!
