VETERAN'S STORY
Lexington WWII veteran shares experiences that will land him in British war museum

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 10:36 AM EDT
LEXINGTON, Ky.


Even after nearly 70 years, you don't forget having an airplane blow up around you.

It happened to Lexington's Gayle Alexander when his B-17 bomber was hit by flak and exploded over Germany during World War II.

Getting blown out of the sky is just one of Alexander's wartime experiences that could have come out of an adventure novel.

Which is why British war museum researcher Jenny Cousins flew all the way to Lexington last week to film and interview Alexander about his days as a bomber pilot with the Mighty Eighth Air Force in Europe during World War II.

In addition to his stories, Alexander is donating part of his World War II uniform and other memorabilia to the British museum.
