Herman Stanley might as well have won the lottery.
On a trip six years ago to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Stanley saw a plane on display he suspected he rode during World War II.
He told one of the museum’s volunteers about his one-in-a-million chance find, and they asked him how he could prove it. On Nov. 13, Dr. Baird Foree and Stanley returned with proof — his
70-year-old flight logbook.
