That's neat

That's neat that you are building a plane to honor him. I'm sorry he won't be able to see it fly again. Those guys are my heroes!
I got to know a gentleman here in town that flew 33 missions out of Siapan as a tail gunner on the B-29's. He and his brother (waist gunner - same crew) are the only ones that came home from the war.
It was such a neat experience to get to know him and you should have seen the look on his face when he saw the plane. He said it was so good to see that plane fly again. What a neat guy.
Anyway - that is one of the great things about this hobby - far more than just flying airplanes.
Best of luck on this adventure - they are a neat plane.

Later
Wade
