Don't seem like too good an idea does it,  maybe they figured if it was rifles shooting at em, that it'd be better to have em aimin at the wings rather than the engine or pilot.  ya notice they didn't put no bullseye under either one of them.

Still don’t understand ‘em. Ya gottah toot yer own horn. They fly the ones airworthy, damned near all of ‘em, regular ‘n the only way the folks what might wanna watch know is checkin’ their website. By the time I knew they’d acquired the B-25 it was already there, on the ground 'n in the hanger.

Ain’t my operation. They kin run it the way they want.

Wanna be a consultant myself. Was it the place in Richmond where they’ve got the Blackbird sittin’ out in the weather.

Was inside lookin’ it a beautiful ole gal. Had a kitty litter pan under the motor ‘n she’s steady leakin’ oil. Asked the tour guide if she was ever gonna fly again. Said no. Suggested they drain the crankcase.

Must drink Sam Adams. Don’t make no sense.

Watched a Harrison Ford movie with Lil called Hanover Street.  It boarders on "chick flick" but has some good shots of repro B-25's.  Can't say how well they did with the interiors cause I never been inside one.

Leo,   Most of the B 25s used in that movie were owned by folks in England and France.  There are a lot of American WW2 planes owned by folks in England , Canada, and Europe.

Leo,  If ya wanna see a beautiful LADY, Look up Miss Mitchell. She is part of the CAF and is assigned to the Minnesota Wing.  The original "Miss Mitchell" was in the same Bomb Group of the 12th AF that my Dad was assigned. He was in a different Squadron. His outfit was what was the Doolittle Raider outfit after it was reorganized and sent to North Africa.  There are only about 35 B 25s in existence.

Ya know, I forgot somethin' I was tellin' buck Sunday, an old faded memory, stopped at the store Sunday for some rolls, was a little plane headed to the airport, and as I headed in Saw the Sunday Omaha World Hearald on the rack.

Back when I was young, Grandpagot it delivered to the fame by a single engine plane that came over low and tried to drop it in te pasture east of the house.  Remember how hard it was to read the funnies the time it hit the metal roofed garage. Grin

At the very end of this video there is an awsome shot of a four engine blowing a dam.  I paused it and tried to save it but no go.  Anyone knows how ta get me the pitcher gets a beer on me.

It's almost too complicated to explain, so I'll just give you the basics.

Go to http://www.mediaconverter.org/ and download the video to your drive in the format of you choosing.  Then use a video editing software to grab the image.

On the other hand, the easiest way is to pause the video, press the print screen button.  Open paintbrush and Edit/Paste.  Then you can cut the rest of the junk out.
