B-24 flight provides trip back in time for Cape Coral veteran

This past weekend, 93-year-old Cape Coral resident Paul Sanborn had a unique opportunity to turn back the hands of time.

On Saturday, Sanborn, along with eight of his fellow Rotary Club of Cape Coral Rotarians took to the sky in an authentic B-24 aircraft.

Saturday's flight marked over 70 years since Sanborn had flown inside one of the legendary B-24 aircrafts.

In 1942, as the United States was in the midst of World War II, a 20-year-old Paul Sanborn enlisted in the Army Air Corp with the hopes of becoming a pilot.

Yacht Club area median landscaping project underway

Crews recently began work on a median landscaping project extending from the Yacht Club to Cape Coral Parkway. 

The project includes adding new landscaping and installing a high-efficiency irrigation system on Driftwood, Lucerne and Coronado parkways. The city council approved the $137,000 project in January. 

The median work is being done by city contractor, Tony’s Landscaping, who recently began demo work on the project. Most of the existing landscaping will be removed to meet current sight distance criteria, and enhance driver safety and visibility along these roads.
