Those Pilots try and make the riders sick from the Gs. I would hate to be the poor soul that has to clean out the masks.

Are you sure your frame would handle the G's, Arcey? Not so sure my discs would like the heightened compression. I might end up being 5'6 or less instead of 5'7 :o ::) ;)
I might be slow, but I'm mostly accurate.....

Could see the Navy showin' off from the gas pumps at Sam's but by the time I got ta my observation spot it Oceana they'd parked 'em. Did see three bi-planes 'n a jet powered glider (?) werkin' on their routines. Saw three T6s appear then disappear towards the ocean.

Had folks sittin' nearby with camera lenses big as a mortor............................................

I'd like to see that, P-40s are one of the best looking planes of the era, to me at least. I know the P-51s were better, but I sure like the looks of the P-40. Don't see many of them, even though they made a ton of them, I've read a lot were used for training and stateside patrolling all through the war.

I was able to attend a reunion of my Dad's WW2 last weekend and I am attending a Reunion of the Flying Tigers this Friday at Cavanaugh's. I wish that the Museum was nearer to my house.

Awesome!  Glad you got to visit your Dad's unit.

That reporter couldn't think of anything but crashes and "how to get out of this thing!"

Whadda puss.

I'd prolly have to grease the sides of the cockpit to squeeeeeeze my arse an' shoulders in the seat, but just give ME a chance!  I'd give those readers a helluva You-Tube piece!


And yes - if I did puke (highly doubtful) I'd be honored to clean up my own mess!  More time in the thing, I say!

I got to meet the current 310th Commander, a Bird colonel. They have activated two of the squadrons(379 and 380). Plans are in the works to activate my Dad's squadron(428) in the future. He gave 2 of the current 310th patches to put on my flight suits.

Sounds good, Litl' Jimmy!

I wish I had more information about ANY of my Dad's Navy units.  The only carrier I know he flew from was the U.S.S.Independence, which was an "Escort Carrier," sometimes known as a "Jeep" carrier.  They were considerably smaller than the full-size carriers like the "Lady Lex" (U.S.S.Lexington) or the "Hornet" or the "Enterprise."  (No - NOT NCC 1701!)

here you go Jeff & Jim

SN 43-24362 recovered from Fl Everglades in 1986. Nearly complete airship wreckage.

-Curtiss P-40 Warhawk SN 43-24362 recovered in the Florida Everglades.  This nearly complete airship is one of the few surviving, unrestored P-40 Warhawks left in the world. Currently being restored in Douglas Ga.
This fighter was piloted by Earl Goodyear and involved in a mid-air collision in 1945 with another P-40 piloted by Roy Rom during a training exercise. This event resulted in a forced landing in the Florida Everglades. Both planes remained undisturbed for the next 40 years.
The laborious recovery was performed in 1986, and took nearly two years to excavate and remove from a very remote part of the Everglades. The aircraft had to be disassembled and moved out by small boat, component by component.
when planets align...do the deal !
