True stories of amazing intersections ...
Did you watch the Ken Burns special on PBS, "The War"? In the second episode, there was a segment about a B-17 raid on Schweinfurt, Germany. Bill Fox, now a team photographer for the San Francisco 49ers, told Connecting Stories months ago about his part in that bombing.
Schweinfurt was, Bill said, "... the center of the German ball bearing industry. That morning, two hundred and ninety-one B-17 Flying Fortresses took off from bases in England headed east toward the German border. Sixty were shot down, taking with them more than 600 men ...."
Bill doesn't remember everything about that October day in 1943, but that's understandable because it was a lifetime ago. One thing he's sure of: he was one of the B-17 pilots who died that day when his plane was shot down.
