GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — A 97-year-old Georgia veteran took to the skies for a historic flight Sunday afternoon in honor of Veterans Day.
Herman Tannenbaum served in the Air Force during World War II but had never flown in a B-17 bomber until Sunday.
Tannenbaum was a navigator on the B-24 Mitchell during World War II in the Philippines.
His ride Sunday was his first in a B-17 bomber. His neighbor helped set up the flight as a way to thank Tannenbaum for his service.
