See new Air Force pilot take his 92 YO WWII grandpa flying

92-year-old WWII fighter pilot, Bob Jorgenson, pinned some very special wings on his grandson, Nick Atkins, when he graduated at the top of his class in Academics from Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio, Texas. They were his own. Captain Jorgensen flew 35 missions into the European heartland during his active duty tour in Great Britain.

Watch this family pair go back up into the “wild blue yonder.”  This short video (3 minute) is courtesy of USA TODAY.
