Tri-County Times > News > World War II veteran kept B-24 Witchcraft flying

Although the original Witchcraft was disposed of on Oct. 3, 1945, the veteran Collings Foundation has a replica of the aircraft that tours the country, with its five ground crew members’ names painted on its side. And, a model of the Witchcraft hangs from a ceiling in the Eighth Air Force Museum in Pooler, Ga. — a place Betcher has visited several times.

 Betcher was 20 when he was drafted in January 1943. Testing showed three areas he was qualified for, and his first choice was becoming a mechanic, he said. That was where he was sent....

Cheers, Nigel :)
