Finding Loren: Wednesday, Feb. 27, 6 pm. The Columbia Heights Public Library will host a free presentation, “Finding Loren: The Life, Death, and Discovery of a P-47 Fighter Pilot.” History buffs, aviation enthusiasts, and people of all ages will enjoy this amazing story of one family’s quest to find their father. First Lieutenant Loren Hintz was an Iowa farm boy and American P-47 fighter pilot, shot down in action over northern Italy during World War II. Loren’s death remained clouded in mystery for more than 70 years until his family, along with a dedicated group of Italian aviation enthusiasts and archaeologists, located the crash site. What they discovered in Italy will amaze you. Presenter Gretchen Hintz Wronka, Loren’s daughter, will display selected artifacts. This program is free and open to the public. No registration required.
