A modern Rosie the Riveter. I found Halley wrenching on a Wildcat when we visited the Mid America Flight Museum in March. She grew up around airplanes with her dad and brothers and now does fabric covering for aircraft out of California.

More army tools found in the suitcase. A fork and spoon in one makes it simple. A pair of shades to cover glasses.

20 YR OLD LOWELL MOORE’S MISSION OVER BERLIN: Lowell Moore lay on his back, knees bent up near his ears. Two steel levers were gripped in each hand, cold against his palms, even through gloves. The world buzzed. Turbulence and the roar of the 1200 horsepower engines made his entire body vibrate.

Lowell pushed against the lever in his right hand and the man-sized ball he was hunched inside spun around.

Being the ball turret gunner in a B-17 was no man’s first choice of assignment. But when Lowell first met the pilot of Take It Easy, he knew what the officer was thinking. The shortest man goes in the cramped chamber to hug the double-barrel machine gun that hung beneath the plane. At 5’6″, Lowell got the short straw. Almost literally.

It was a terrifying duty for a boy just shy of 21 years old, but after four missions, he was starting to get used to it. The sub-zero temperatures; the hours spent breathing through his oxygen mask; the cramping in his muscles from sitting hunched in a fetal position. But none of that compared to the flutter in his stomach from flying unprotected above enemy territory, suspended in mid air.

As he looked out, a shake ran up his spine, an involuntary shiver. The heated suits the military provided rarely worked properly. Lowell resisted every natural urge to keep warm. He wanted to wiggle his fingers and toes…rub his hands together…anything to keep blood flowing. But each extremity was in use and on alert – his hands both gripped the joysticks that pivoted his ball and fired the deadly guns. One foot rested on a pedal that controlled the reflector sight, which hung suspended between his legs, and the other foot’s pedal ran his intercom – the only communication he had with his comrades back inside Take It Easy; the only thing that kept him from being truly alone at 27,000 feet.
