FLYING PERKINS LAST FLIGHT PATH
Jon Teboe shoots the flight path of the last flight of William R. Perkins. Much thanks goes to John Torchio who arranged this fantastic flight!
He also has been researching the life and death of Perkins for many years and has been a great source of information.
This is the center of the village of Notre Dame de Cenilly. Perkins crashed near here. At the bottom of the church's WWI Memorial, a plaque honoring Perkins is placed.
Perkins strafed these roads and this barn on the morning of June 13, 1944. We interviewed an eye witness last week who told us about Perkins' final flight. John Torchio arranged this amazing interview!
Just to left of this photo is where the plane crashed.
