Smile WW2 aviator gets an RV ride

Last Friday, Bonnie and I had the pleasure of flying a WWII Naval Aviator and his daughter to lunch at Cedar Mills.



Bill Amundson, Lois Larson, Tom and Bonnie on the ramp at Cedar Mills.

Bill got his wings at Pensacola in 1943 and flew PBY, C47 and C54s in the South Pacific during the war. He is 92 and absolutely loved flying an RV. It was a real treat to share an RV flight with them. His daughter Lois also enjoyed her first flight in a small plane.
