Sparky checked off yet another item from his bucket list when he hitched a ride on a B-1B Lancer, a US Air Force bomber, at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota. The base has been in use since it was built in 1942. The B-1B is a supersonic vehicle, meaning it can travel faster than the speed of sound!
Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish from now through October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
