John Billings and Nevin Showman ( Flying with a Purpose….. to bring Help and Hope to those in Need )
Hello Everyone !
As I set here tonight at the desk in our room (In Toledo Ohio) ….. I feel so honored to have been a part of this once in a Lifetime Journey around the Country with Captain John ! The places we have seen and the people we have met have been absolutely amazing ! Today has been no different….. it was a fantastic day of flying and we really enjoyed taking the pictures that follow. It was really something hard to describe when we got to circle over Willow Run (Willow Run was where Henry Ford built a plant that mass produced B24 Liberators at the astounding rate of one per hour during WWII !) And for me to have experienced this with Captain John was priceless…… And I know for sure it was a special moment for John to be circling around this Historic area in his own plane 70 years later where there was a strong chance that some of the Liberators he flew came from this very site ! We have one more night after this one and then we are Home Bound ! We plan on landing back at home base in Luray Va on Monday afternoon. Our last major photo op will be Niagara Falls ! John and I really feel good about our Mission and believe that many more people may now know more about Charitable Flying than before….. We have talked to so many people it is amazing that we have not lost our voice. So as we get close to the end of our around the Country Flight I would like to again thank each and everyone of you all for following our flight and spreading the word. And we would like to ask that even when this flight is over and we are back to doing Angel Flights….. Please continue to tell people about this website and about Charitable Flying. Thanks again so much and we hope you enjoy the pictures…… Goodnight All !
