Take It Easy Factoid - None Available

 [Side note from above photo contributer: "Over ten years ago, a gentleman gave me a book on the B-17 with these photos (along with others) inside. In the Take It Easy crew photo, I believe he is the first one on the left in the front row. I've also attached a picture of him that was in the book so you can see why. In the other picture, they did not get the name of the airplane. I think he is in the fron row, 3rd from the left (2nd from the right). The book, written by Roger A. Freeman, was copyrighted in 1977 and is entitled B-17 Fortress at War. I have no idea who he was as I never saw him again. I thought he would return for the book but he didn't. Possibly he had no family and didn't want these to be destroyed."]
