Default Scott & Williams / B-17

I wonder if anyone remembers the B-17 which was on display at the Laconia Airport for several years after WWII? It was sponsored by Scott & Williams, Inc. which had been instrumental in bringing it to the airport for public viewing, where it remained for approximately five years after that time. The company had been very much involved in the war effort, having been transformed from peacetime work to government contract work throughout those years. Its arrival was ushered in by a proper ceremony to greet the revered warrior.

Default Letter in Daily Sun Re: B-17

I see there is a letter in today's Laconia Daily Sun (10/9/19 edition) written by Gordon D. King pertaining to the B-17 I posted about above. Glad I am not the only one who remembers it. Very interesting. It is highly likely that my father, who was a machinist at Scott & Williams, made parts for those planes during WWII.
