This is a place you can feel free to talk about just about any thing you want. As long as it is family-rated of course.

My grandfather was AAC (Pacific) as a mechanic. Those pilots were something else, flying when airplanes were still very much for daredevils. Wonderful story! The reaction of Blyth was priceless!

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."
