    "The Belle of the Brawl" A-2 F/S

    Dang I was hoping it was the one from the 401st bomb group that has the lady leaning against the ropes of a boxing ring. That is an exceptionally nice A2 though!

    The Futbol War

    I know this isn't WW2 but it involves ww2 aircraft. Does anyone know about the Futbol War of the late 60s where surplus Corsairs and P51s were squaring off against eachother and C47s had been converted into heavy bombers. Anyone know much about this small war?

    I had a fight with my wife tonight....

    It is interesting. Especially how some can participate so freely in some non golden era topics, and willingly. But the second it is subject matter that they don't agree with or if they find it offensive then it's all of a sudden "off topic" interesting... On the other hand I found this joke...

    Just Watched Red Tails.

    I saw it as well, I enjoyed it, thought some of the lines were a little hokey tho. I really enjoyed the scenes at the air base, looked very top notch. When I got to the theater there were television crews interviewing people who had watched the showing before mine. Apparently the showing before...

    What did you do in the war Daddy...?

    Are you serious? Research the story behind both flag raisings, it wasn't a staged photo. Hell a forum member just stated he had talked to the actual photographer who took the picture and the photographer stated getting the image was merely by chance, right place right time. Trust me, coming from...

Its not like the photographers said "hey go slowly when you raise the flag, hold it, okay perfect!" They just took the pic while they were in the process of raising the larger...
