Today at our Wings of Freedom Tour visit to Ellington Field, Houston, Texas - Mr. Glenn Martin flew 32 missions as Captain on a B-24 Liberator in the 93rd Bomb Group based in Hardwick, England. He remembers being attacked by one of those wild new jet aircraft - the Messerschmitt Me-262, but until today when he saw our Me-262 based there at Ellington Field, he had never seen one on the ground!
