World War II fighter pilot Glen Van Slyke of Naples takes his turn in the nose of a B-17 Bomber while it flies over Naples on Monday, Nov. 5, 2007. The B-17, named the 'Aluminum Overcast' was brought down from Oshkosh, WI on tour by the Experimental Aircraft Association. For Slyke, who flew P-40 fighter planes for three years in the Army Air Corp, it was the first time in 65 years that he had been in a military plane. 'It sure brought back a lot of memories,' he said.
