    That was interesting. It might have come off better had they not stuck the tail in the water first. Not that it's easy to ditch a B-24, but, if it was a flatter landing I think it might have resulted in less damage. Check out the guy climbing out of the top hatch after what looked like a near fatal crash, taking the time to carefully comb his hair back into place. Pilots, ya can't take 'em anywhere!

    My gut reaction is something from the UK. Not confident at all.

    Heartbreaker for the 43 guys. I had them wrote off too, but seeing them make such a great run, then to have the engine blow up, was sad. One of the ESPN race talking heads, at the time, insinuated, since the blow up occurred after a pit stop, that perhaps Aric missed a shift and blew it up himself. Hope that wasn't the case. Great race at the end between the 4, 2, 24, and 42.

    PRB replied to a thread Robb White in The NewsHawks
    In seeing all the books we all read when we were younger, it occurs to me that most of the fiction I read back then was science fiction. Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle, Arthur C. Clarke, Frank Herbert, and others. My WW-II reading was non-fiction, except for Robb White and Martin Caidin. Good stuff!

    There is a modern category Ed. Just not anything jet related.

    Love Martin Caidin! Ever read this one? It's a novel, loosely based on the exploits of the 3rd Attack Group in the Pacific War. If Vertigo Studios ever releases their B-25C, I'm going to make a paint of "Whip" Russell's black B-25 with the "Death's Head" on the nose.

    PRB started a thread Robb White in The NewsHawks
    As a wee lad I read lots of books. Still do, for that matter. My favorite author, without a doubt, was Robb White. He wrote “nautical adventure novels for young people set in the Pacific War”. That's the best short description I can come up with. My two favorites were “Up Periscope” and “Flight Deck”. I still have the very paperbacks I read and re-read countless times (see scanned pic). They are so worn and fragile now I dare not even open them. I've been buying up hard back versions of his books from Amazon, “Torpedo Run”, “The Survivor”, “Silent Ship, Silent Sea”, and “Surrender”. They are all available for cheap prices. Used, worn, but serviceable. But... My two favorites? They are available, but at HUGE prices. How interesting. “Up Periscope” was made into a movie, which I saw once...

    I've done many a FOD walkdown on those runways too, albeit some years ago, but I have no idea what those signs say, if they're not the standard "A", "B", or "C" taxiway turnoff signs. I posted the pic on our squadron page on Facebook, but nobody there knows either. Hoping some pilots chime in.

    Hi Mike , Just a quick question . Thanks for a fantastic event and it is quite a challenge Harv and I were being a little naughty and discussion routes , wildcards etc and noticed Flying Bull went for the Canaries we both thought " nice move but missing Africa will mean needing to hit an extra commercial in South America " . Could be a good move , difficult to tell , but I do not see the extra Commercial hit , only see 10 hit . It`s not a complaint , just an observation and maybe an oversight or mis-understanding of the rules , but I definately ruled out tenerife because it`s not a required commercial and would need an extra south america leg to compensate the short cut . Please don`t take as a complaint but as an observation and a quick hop to SUMU and back should fullfill the requirement Once again a fantastic event and not competitive , just great to see so many friends again . Cheers Mike Happy Flying
