Sheila Vester, a Fayetteville-Manlius High School graduate, stands at a monument erected in the Dutch town of Lisse to honor the flight crew of her father, William Goodfellow. Goodfellow’s B-17 bomber, the Jayhawk, crashed near the town Sept. 26, 1944, during a mission in WWII. He didn’t actually fly in the plane, having injured his hand cleaning his gun the night before, but those who did were his close friends at wartime.
