A Wing and A Prayer

Take a trip back to the time when Southwest Florida's own "wild blue yonder" served as practice flying ground for more than 80,000 bombardiers, fighter pilots and gunners. Veteran interviews and vintage photographs recall the time of World War I and II Army Airfields in Arcadia, Clewiston, Fort Myers, Naples and Punta Gorda.
