Wow, that's amazing! 65 years later...

That must have been a sight to see. Would have been nice to be there to see it in person.

Here's a picture of it:



Have any of you from that area seen it in person?

Thanks for the find. I wish more WWII aircraft were still around. Time, weather, accidents are doing away with them.
The fine crews that first flew them are gone or soon to be gone as well.

I salute each and everyone of them.
