Lance, Waddy & Oklahoma Go to War

Ponca City native Waddy Young and the famous Time magazine photo of him and his crew emulating the nose art on the B-29 Superfortress bomber "Waddy's Wagon" that he piloted against the Japanese. Aviation and football legend Waddy, a major character in my upcoming historical novel Mustang, was in real life one of the greatest military heroes in Oklahoma history.
