B-17G Flight

Here is the video of the B-17G flight that Dad (Maynard Hanson) and I took back in 2008. Dad was in the bombardier seat when we took off and I was right behind him. Half way through the flight Dad and I changed position with the two people in the rear of the plane. Sentimental Journey is one of the warbirds from the Arizona wing of the Commemorative Air Force.

Troop Review 1945

Found online by Facebook volunteer Steve Schell

Here is yet another amazing set of footage from May 1945, showing General Patton escorting Soviet officers in a troop review which appears to be the 65th Infantry in Linz Austria.


After conducting further research, the troops in review are in fact, the 65th Infantry. The attached picture (from Camp Shelby museum) shows the same event with the same Soviet Generals in a still photo and you can clearly see the Halbert on the men's uniforms!

These are links to videos where the 65th was taped, either during the war or post war.
