Boomm Interactive Art Director Helps WW II Vets Enjoy a High-Flying Labor Day
This past Labor Day, Boomm Interactive Art Director Josh Laabs took part in a very special event to honor veterans in the Chicago area. Josh and his wife Heidi worked with the Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation to honor veterans from the Covenant Village of Northbrook retirement community with flights in a WWII Boeing Stearman bi-plane.
During the event, eight veterans from the retirement community donned helmets and goggles at the Executive Airport in Wheeling, Illinois before enjoying a 20-minute ride in the two-person open-cockpit plane. As this photo shows, the residents were delighted by this opportunity to take flight.
