Decades later, WWII pilot flies again

A man who flew combat missions in World War II found himself back at the controls recapturing a little bit of history. 

Dick Cameron has always loved flying and being in the cockpit, but he hasn't even sat in a plane in a very long time. 

With a little help from Kissimmee Stallion 51, though, pilot John Black took Cameron back up in the skies after 66 years. Cameron even got to take over the controls, and did a series of rolls. 

"I thought I'd never do that again!" Cameron laughs once he's back on the ground. 

He is 93 years old, and is suddenly young again.

"I will never have a day like this again," he says.
