"It was a real nice flight. Nothing to worry about. No fighter planes, no flak and just enjoyed the surrounding countryside. It was a beautiful flight. I never really thought anything about it years ago," said former pilot William "Dub" Tooms.
The aircrafts are on display at the Shreveport Downtown Airport.
