A World War II veteran had the chance to do something he hasn't done in many years - fly in a bomber!

93-year-old Chester Bowers was allowed to help fly the plane and even brought his grandson along for the ride!

He says it brought back lots of memories.

"I get a feeling of warmth and I feel like missing the crew. We were like brothers—a pretty tight bond ‘cause we lived through some pretty terrific experiences and some pretty dull experiences."

The flight lasted about 20 minutes. An airline association in Idaho made it all happen.
