Piloting the Pope: Lawrence Man Recalls Time w/ John Paul II

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.

You'll find more information about Nelson Krueger's presentation by visiting the website of Benedictine College. Just log on to
