One of the neatest things about flying warbirds is the people one meets. Back in 2007 I had the opportunity to take Leslie Carlton for a flight in one of the last remaining airworthy SBD Dauntless dive bombers. Leslie was a gunner in SBDs, flying from USS Yorktown and New Caledonia. It was the first time he had been up in a Dauntless since WWII. And the SBD is a World War II veteran as well. #greatestgeneration #sbddauntless #divebomber #scoutbomberdouglas #douglasaircraftcompany #wwiiveteran #sbd5 #twin30s #flyinghistory #warbird #taildragger

Happy 75th Birthday. We do not know the exact date of our Catalina's first flight but we do know the earliest date in its records. 75 years ago today it was accepted on charge by the Royal Canadian Air Force's Western Air Command prior to allocation to 9 (BR) Squadron. Who would have thought back then that she would still be airworthy and thrilling air show crowds all these year later! So, happy birthday Miss Pick Up, and lets look forward to many more years flying!
