Big Brother Casey and Little Brother Ka'shawn

Big Brother Casey and Little Brother Ka'shawn have been matched in our Community Based program for over 3.5 years! Read about what Big Brother Casey had to share about their most recent outing together.

"Okay this is one of only two B-29s left in the world that can still fly. It's named Doc, because in the 50s all of the planes in its unit were named after characters from the Disney Snow White film. These were the largest planes flown in combat in WW2. They were really only used in the pacific in late 44 and 45 I think. We waited in line and were able to enter the front of the plane near the bomb bay. That's where KJ and I took a photo and the background is green. They even had fake bombs that showed the size of the real ones (the 500 LB bomb and the larger one were giant!!). We were able to spend about 3 minutes standing at the back of the cockpit where there were multiple crew station such as navigator. They explained the jobs and where people sat. KJ is very into WW2 and military history and had never seen anything like this before. He said he's a tank guy and not a plane guy before the outing. After the outing he said that he thinks he likes planes too! This plane travels across the country landing at different cities for people to come see it. It was in town from THU-SUN."
