CONCORD, N.C. – There was a special plane ride Sunday for a local World War II veteran.
Kris Chapman took his 89-year-old grandfather for a ride on a Memphis Belle. The famous B-17 Bomber plane played a critical role in World War II.
It was at the Concord Airport for public tours this weekend. Dudley Brown actually flew in a B-17 during the war, and says being on board again brought back a flood of memories.
Brown served 33 missions for the 8th Air Force before receiving an honorable discharge.
