  2. A-1 Skyraider OPS in Viet Nam. Home movies from someone who flew those missions.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcbcHJpIHU0
  3. I remember this at Fairchild circa 1982 with T-37s. Serious question: Why not bring back the program using something like the Cirrus SR-20 like they use for powered flight training at the Zoo (a.k.a. the T-53A). You could get like 40 T-53s and support equipment, staff, etc... spread out across the MAF for the price of say 4 or 5 T-6s.

  8. Love the near photo like quality of this art. Excellent work.
  9. Hope for the future; 17 year old girl gets PPL in spring of 2020, goes on to place second in a major STOL competition.
  10. Here's something that's well worth the time, 90 year old P-47 driver tells his story. Kind of long but well worth it. Living history from someone who was were there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lo_irQ9bjzU&feature=youtu.be
  11. Welcome to the Check-of-the-Month Club brother. ๐Ÿบ
