    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.
