Mystery. Intrigue. Legend. History. Things you don’t usually think of when thinking about the Western Museum of Flight. All these elements come together and yet come apart at the Western Museum of Flight (WMoF) on April 15th. Famed YF-23 Test Pilot, Paul Metz, will relate the saga of the investigation of the disappearance of K.O. Katy. Over 18,000 B-24’s were built for the War to End All Wars, WW II. More than 2000 were lost in combat in Europe alone. Most of those planes and crews remain unknown incidents in a long and bloody war. Thirty years ago, Alfred Paul Metz and his father began a journey. The goal was to determine what had happened to the commander of the aircraft in whose honor Paul was named and Paul’s father’s best friend and Paul’s namesake, 1st Lt. Alfred C. Folck, a pilot in the U.S. Army Air Force, who died on a combat mission in 1944. With nothing but morsels of information, Paul and his father began to scour official and unofficial records. For the next two years, detective work and shear happenstance allowed them to piece together the complete story of the man, his crew, the mission and his fate. The story has many unique twists, ironies and surprises culminating in a meeting with the men of the 376 Bomb Group and correspondence with the only two men to have survived the loss of B-24D, serial number 42-72847, “K.O. Katy”. Aside from Metz’s story and lecture, the WMoF will have the great Northrop Stealth Fighter on display. Parking is free. Be a part of the WMoF family. If you are a WMoF Member you can attend these monthly events FREE.
