CORVALLIS, Ore. - Chuck Kirby always knew his father was a World War II veteran, but he came to the airport in Corvallis to learn more about his family's unspoken past.
"Kind of tells me a little bit about my step dad," Kirby said as he toured three vintage warplanes, including a B-17 like the one his father served aboard. "Little bit of a connection with him that I didn't have before because he wouldn't talk a lot about it."
The plane was in Corvallis as part of a vintage aircraft tour. The planes were in North Bend earlier this week.
