Excellent video ... damn allergies! :( Wait, I don't have allergies :o


On a side note, did you all hear about Hanks?spielberg teaming up for a min-series ala BoB telling the story of of aerial wars fought by bombers enlisted in the US' Eighth Air Force, nicknamed The Mighty Eighth?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the duo's miniseries will be based on historian Donald L. Miller's non-fiction book Masters of the Air: America's Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany.

I don't know about you all but I thought BoB and the Pacific were awesome. Some of the best material ever put to film :)

Sure brought tears to this old vet's eyes.:o

Gorgeous. It reminds me of what one F-15 pilot said at an airshow. "You'll have pilots here flying the most advanced, fastest, deadliest aircraft the world has seen. But if you ask them what they want to fly, they will all answer the P-51."

Yes, I noticed that.

I was in tears before 1:30 timer even rolled around. How could we ever, ever thank them? They have all done what I could never do. God bless them all. Then and now.

You are thanking them every day. You will be amazed at what you can do when the reaper is looking you in the eye. I am sure those veterans were amazed when they did the things they did.
