Yippee!

What are you going to fly on D-Day?


What will your choice of model be for the up coming June 6th ,60th anniversary of the heroic landings in Normandy.
I would have liked the new GWS C-47, how appropriate is that!but alas not available yet.

Johnson did it!
Alas, I will not be flying on D Day itself. I will be spending the day leading tours of the new wing of the Museum of Flight here in Seattle. It houses aircraft from both WW I and WW II. I have been working for the last year to help put the display togeather. I expect that we will get a large number of Veterans through to see the aircraft that they flew. Our Spitfire is even an actual D Day participant.

P-47, also called a Thud

I thought the F-105 was the "thud". A p-47 was a "jug" after milk jug because of its shape.

The P-47 is nicknamed the Thud as well the Jug. The F-105 was the Thunder Thud, Thud, and Groundhog - among others.

And to answer the original question, I don't have any warbirds, so I'll have to fly my Stevens Cap 40e in honor of the French Resistance!
