“That’s probably why there were so many casualties,” says Milt Kramlick, crew chief of the Aluminum Overcast, a B-17G bomber built just after WWII. He’s referring to the fact that when this type of plane was originally used, there were no seatbelts in the midsection. There weren’t even seats.
A few minutes later I am sitting in this section, holding on to my army-style seat for dear life. I am terrified of heights and soon this nearly 70-year-old bomber will be soaring over San Marcos.

Members of San Marcos Academy’s National Junior Honor Society presented a $100 donation to the San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter April 17.
The group raised the money through their annual “pie in the face” contest, in which students purchased chances to throw a pie in the face of faculty and staff volunteers.
This is the third year the NJHS has donated contest proceeds to the Animal Shelter.
The Academy’s Junior Honor Society has 34 members and is sponsored by Amy Nighbert and Tamra Howe.
