LETTER: Warren Shipp, who piloted Superfortress in WWII, offered rides here
Cyrus suspects even his own older sister may have harbored the same thoughts as Debbie Sinclair. He echoes a wish for more stories from both Debbie Sinclair and Larry Walker
The Larry Walker and Debbie Sinclair articles are great. Yes, please -- more from both!
In the 1940s, Mr. Warrren C. Shipp, who piloted a Superfortress bomber during World War Two (and later, on recall to active duty, piloted many missions aboard a transport plane for the Berlin Airlift), offered breath-taking plane rides over Adair County: sixteen minutes for three dollars.
I imagine many a young Adair County lass carefully saved her pennies with a view of taking a little brother or two on such a ride, then assisting him off the plane mid flight.
Most likely, my older sis amassed as high as $2.95 on any number of occasions toward that very goal. And she may still be saving . . . Cyrus
