I had to work the airshow today at JBER and met a splendid fellow who started flying in 1944 and has kept on doing so. Today he flew one of the aircraft that did a demonstration flight, and afterward spent some time talking with me. It's a true shame that there aren't more of these fellows left. His jacket (which was part of the impetus for this post) was outstanding. It's his original issue item, though I'm not savvy enough to determine anything about it.
