MET 081518 BRETT COCKPIT
Tribune-Star/Joseph C. Garza
Feeling closer to her pilot: Judy Brett feels the climb of the airplane as she and pilot J.P. Mellor take off from the Terre Haute Regional Airport on Wednesday. Brett rode in the airplane as a way to honor her late husband, Bill Brett, a World War II veteran who passed away on July 1. Bill trained in a plane like Mellor's during World War II.
