Thirty-two years ago, Pope John Paul II visited the United States. It was in October of 1979 that the pontiff embarked on his six-day tour. One of the co-pilots on the pope's airplane was a flight engineer from Lawrence. Nelson Krueger (CREW-gur) will recall his time with the pope during a presentation this (FRI) afternoon at Benedictine College in Atchison. KPR's J. Schafer spoke with Krueger about his experience... and about his lasting impressions of piloting the pope.
