The Green Parrott

As another homage to Veterans Day this year, meet the Green Parrott, a WWII B-17 flown and named by Horace Parrott and Ernie Green. It flew 87 missions before it went down in the North Sea in 1945. Here’s to you and to our fathers and grandfathers for signing up to go to those “strange places, with stranger sounding names”, to fight the good fight. They were The Greatest Generation.
