The excellent article about David Tallichet and his B-17 (View, Nov. 8) cleared up a mystery that haunted me for years. I read that he flew his combat tour as a B-17 co-pilot.
I am astonished because, up to the very moment of the reading, I was under the impression that there were no co-pilots in World War II.
Through the years I've known many of the fliers, but they were always the pilot of the bomber. I ask you, therefore, to consider the following carefully.
Have you ever met an airman who said he was a co-pilot in the Great Struggle?
