All gave some, some gave all.

Happy Veteran's Day to all those who have served (and are serving)!


Watched a touching story about a WWII vet that was reunited with the aircraft he flew in the war:
He flew the P-38 Lockheed Lightening in combat. The Germans called the P-38 the fork tailed devil, “It was a real godsend. From a pilot’s standpoint it was great.”

So there it was, in the museum, a P-38 just like the one Royal flew in combat.

But then, something very special happened. Against all odds Royal realized that he was once again reunited with the very plane he flew.

The original tail markings, white 33, were the ones he used. This was his plane, “It was quite a thrill.”

White 33 has since been fully restored and fit to fly and once again took to the blue. But this time Frank Royal was in a chase plane, “They won’t let me fly this one, for some reason,” Royal laughed.

Man and machine, together once again, on one last mission.
