During this week, back in 1945, one of the most daring and successful Covert Missions of WWII… “Operation Greenup” began. The pilot of the blackened B24 that flew three spies to their drop zone over the frozen Austrian Alps (in the dark of night) was no other than Captain John Billings!
Listen to this amazing piece of History in the video below as told by the Captain himself… keep in mind, this was 76 year ago!
PS: This video is about 23 minutes long, but well worth the time… when finished, google “Operation Greenup” and see what you may find!

I Am honored to know John and to have known Fred. This was an amazing mission and incredible bravery and skill for John to fly the mission (without crashing) and for the great accomplishments by Fred and his team. True heroes.
