Steve Jones, a resident of Port Talbot, Wales, Great Britain, spent this spring traveling the Lehigh Valley and points beyond on his motorcycle. But he is not exactly what you’d call a typical tourist.
The 56-year-old could be called a history buff. For the last 30 years, he has been researching aviation history in South Wales. He’s studied all kinds of stories and events. He’s also pursued some of them. But one in particular, one that happened more than 75 years ago, brought him to...
