What an incredible story! Although the plane he used was not made in Kansas, the Boeing factory in Wichita did produce the B-17's control surfaces that flew the first stage of the D-Day mission. This stage used the bombers to attempt to neutralize the defenses.

WATCH: 97-year-old US paratrooper veteran Tom Rice, who served with the Army's 101st Airborne Division, recreates his D-Day jump in Normandy 75 years later. https://nbcnews.to/2IjQYtN
