Thanks Monix! It's a double treat: a fine picture of cousin Donald plus a P 51 Mustang. I'm a fan of combat planes of any era.On my recent trip to Washington DC to visit my brother, we visited the new annex to the National Air & Space Museum, the Udvar-Hazy Center. I saw the Concorde, the Enola Gay, the SR-71 Blackbird among other famous planes. It's an amazing place.
"North American?" We'd never refer to a "European Spitfire."
Boy, David, are you ever touchy. It's the name of the company that built it.You guys just won't give the Mexicans credit for anything, will you?
Sorry, David, I just copied the museum's entry for the exhibit. Thanks for the clarification, Peter.We visited the museum in order to let my 90 year old mother-in-law see a Wellington bomber. Her late husband piloted them in WWII for 25 tours over Berlin. Few of his comrades survived and he never spoke of his experiences. It was a very moving trip for us.
Correction to that last statement - 25 tours over military targets in Germany, not Berlin.
I love to read your comments and promise that I will reply as soon as I can leave my garden, sewing room or kitchen!
