WWII veteran returns to the skies


(WRIC) — It has been nearly 74 years to the day since a Richmond World War II veteran flew a B-25 Bomber. 

It was back in May 1944 when his plane was shot down during World War II.  

Today, Russell Scott was reunited with a B-25 right here in Central Virginia and decided to take a ride. 

“I enjoyed being there. It felt like I was 24 years old again,” said Scott. 

8News reporter Amy Simpson will have the rest of the story later this month.
