  •  Excellent! Great video..... (4+ / 0-)

    ....at 4.44 for about 2 seconds....you get a shot of something the USAAF didn't fly in WW2. The starboard cannon of a Hurricane IIc firing....but the RAF are generous...we'd have given you some if you asked!

    A great tribute...so much dust in this place.....

      standing by his P-40 at about 1:28 is a young Tex Hill.  We all grow older, but some are immortal, thanks to their heroism.

      Damn, it is dusty in here. It is amazing how much dust bagpipes and old pictures can stir up.
