She did it again: 85 yo's birthday
Connie Hertz says she likes trying "crazy things." She's been in helicopters, on balloon rides and on a 90-mph motorcycle ride.
So I was thinking: What was I going to do for my 85th birthday?"
Her answer: To ride in B-17 bomber.
Hertz, who turned 85 last month, was treated to the ride Wednesday at Willow Run Airport.
Her friends purchased the $400, 30-minute excursion in the Yankee Air Museum's vintage bomber as a birthday gift.
Before takeoff, they presented her with a leather bomber jacket. Representatives of the U.S. Navy gave her dog tags and other keepsakes.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
