Planes & Poetry

David Foster has a post about The Collings Foundation Wings of Freedom Tour, where a B-17, a B-25, and a B-24 are visiting various cities around the country this spring. The schedule is here. I would sure love to ride in one of those things, if they give me a parachute.

In addition, David excerpts some wonderful WWII bomber poetry. I bet you didn't think there was such a thing.

I might have to take them up on that $500 airplane ride. Wonder how long they take you up for?

I think it's about half an hour.

I got a chance to ride in a Confederate (now Commemorative) Air Force P-51 a few years ago (O.K., more like ten years ago.) Still the best money I've ever spent. It goes to a good cause, is a rare opportunity, and is one heck of a good time.
