MONDOVI, WIS. – Doug Ward and Judie Ohm – owners of Log Cabin Airport (WS69) in Mondovi, Wisconsin – were featured on the cover of the August/September 2016 issue of Midwest Flyer Magazine. Ward was a ball turret gunner on a B-17 Flying Fortress during World War II. Ohm is the author of the book “Turret Tales,” which describes Ward’s experiences. Together, they hosted the 30th anniversary of the Log Cabin Airport Fly-In, September 4, 2016 – an all-day event that drew hundreds of pilots and local citizens.
In addition to autographing their book, Ward and Ohm autographed 100 copies of Midwest Flyer Magazine and suggested a $10.00 donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The magazines were numbered 1 thru 100 to make them more of a keepsake! St. Jude Children’s Hospital provides free medical care for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The hospital, which was founded by entertainer Danny Thomas in 1962, is also a leading research hospital for childhood diseases.
