Submitted without comment! Happy (late) Memorial Day
Thank you, brother.
I'll copy the comment I posted elsewhere when sharing this video:
"Perhaps it would have been better timed over the weekend, but all the same, this is a great video. I'll admit, I found the narrator's voice a bit annoying. I guess that means I'm becoming a grumpy old man myself.
I know some aviation enthusiasts that might enjoy this. I can't imagine anything stranger and lonelier than traveling half a world away to fly a foreign reconnaissance aircraft, solo, DEEP into enemy territory. Repeatedly. For years.
Also, it's interesting to notice the difference in our grandparents going to war, vs. us going to war. I don't have many pictures, and no video, from my deployment in 2001-2002, but just a few years later, digital photography and video really took off. That said, simple wet film 75 years ago was used pretty extensively."
The world would be much better off if stupidity caused infertility.
