Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't maverick and goosman blow those first planes up in Top Gun? Also Chappy Sinclair Doug Masters tore em up too if I'm correct. Go Queen. I honestly like the UK's royal system. All the American royalties dead from karma.

Thank you Sparky.
The old Lancaster brought back memories. My dad flew the Liberator version of the plane during the war. He and a few of his squadron buddies bought a Mitchell after the war and flew it to and from and at many air shows around the country.
Did not know he was as decorated as he was until after his death.
Damn generation gap:mad:

A beloved AAC member also has a decorated family member from the day.
Captain Donald N. Aldrich was a Corsair Flying Ace with a very remarkable achievement and noteworthy story. Give the brave their due.

Flying Aces are a fascinating breed of their own.

The Great Santini ranks among my all-time favorite books/movies.

thanks again
