Flights of Fancy
Produced by: Eve Epstein
SOUNDPRINT joins forces with Marketplace this week to bring you the story of a family business with a difference. Three generations of the Lacey-Scott family lived and work together on a property in Oregon that sustains a restaurant, catering and rental apartment business. The late family patriarch, Art Lacey, was a risk-taking dare-devil who bought an old World War II bomber airplane on a bet and parked it on business property as billboard. Today, everyone in Milwaukee, Oregon, knows "The Bomber" restaurant. And the family embarked on an effort to restore the airplane ... at a cost of two million dollars! We document the first stage of this ambitious plan -- restoration of the B-17's nose section.
