Danny Francisco, a South Lake Tahoe resident and WWII veteran, recently was taken up in a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, the same type of plane he was in during his service.

Francisco flew 50 missions as a tailgunner during 1944-45 at the age of 18. 

The Tribune previously wrote a story about Francisco in 2014 and a video tribute of the veteran getting back into a B-17 can be seen here.
