Default Pictures from Reading W2 Days

This is the first year I've been back since '01; it's still as great as ever.

Highlights:

The guys from Band of Brothers; Guth, Malarkey, and Compton. No picture.

The Catalina PBY-5; what an astonishingly beautiful aircraft.




The Yak-9. This was a re-manufacture, a recent build, and the pilot flew it as such; that sucker was going balls-out. I couldn't catch a picture of it, it was moving so fast.


The Abbot and Costello impersonators. They were great!




The Tiger tank. See the stucco on the sides? That is stucco, and it is textured; it was to prevent magnetic mines from sticking to the hull! This is one of three built for the movie Saving Private Ryan it is a real, working tank, but it is built on a Russian T-34 hull.




And, of course, the nurses.




Here's a link to the other 130 or so pictures; lots of planes, dozens of bikes, lots of equipment. Great stuff.

Did you beat up that kid in the Favre jersey?

Shouldn't he be working with the offense instead of watching Abbot and Costello impersonators? I think I just found out the Packers problem. Someone get the FO on the phone.

Cool pictures, though.

Very nice, Tom. I'm a big fan of the same. I have gone to several air shows in Northeast Ohio that have exhibit area's that feature everything from Civil War reenactments to actual Tuskegee Airmen and guys from the 506th and I just can't get enough of it. These people are national treasures and we are losing WWII vets at a rate of like 1,000 a day.

Some quotes:

"We learn from history that we learn nothing from history."
George Bernard Shaw

"Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it."
George Santayana

(Especially Apropos)
"History will be kind to me for I intend to write it."
Winston Churchill

Finally,

"To arrive at a just estimate of a renowned man's character one must judge it by the standards of his time, not ours."
Mark Twain

Thank you for sharing the pictures. I wasn't able to go but I had wanted to.

I hope days like this continue on for years to come. I hope this country never forgets it's greatest generation.

Tom,

Another great post. As always. They sacrificed so that we could have the freedoms we have. Most don't realize how fortunate we are. Thanks.
