  1. Must see museumship: Every veteran who served is recognized & named over the PA with a Thank You for Your service. No audio wands on tour. Follow yellow arrows. Much work to be done. No food service. Can take pieces of deck home for 5.00 On tour Did NOT see CIC,Mn Engine spaces or Main battle turret for16 in guns. Much more to be done. Arriving on deck, the deck watch asks if any is military or former,U give him your details & hear name announced over PA. No food service ashore. Signage helps explain tour Love the 5 in turrets, compact size. Much labor in a BB alone for all manned guns. 16 in guns alone had huge workforce. See Iowa, San Pedro CA, near Cruise Terminal Center. Take 110 Frwy to San Pedro.
  2. Has anyone serviced, built, flown these planes:? FJ Fury F4D Skyray F7 Cutlass. I see the F4D as a possible Stealth fighter type updated for today, am I off?? & same for F7. FJ is a F86 for the Navy. Skyray is classic like the B58. Comments, ideas.
  3. Anyone work, service, test fly, these planes:? B19, B32, B40, Rainbow 12, XP67, Skystreak, B54
  4. Checked online & seen nothing about U Boats hiding along riverways in Brazil, Venezula, Ecuador from Allied patrols in So Atlantic. Media model: Murphys War, 1971.( On DVD). Peter O Toole, best role since Lawrence Arabia. From novel, written. Anyone who served in Merchent Marine or RN, USN hear of U Boats hiding in riverways after damage etc?? Or Hollywood fiction.
  5. Read book from Time Life on Soldiers of Fortune about mercenary pilots. & the 1st air combat duel was by 2 merc pilots over Mexico on Curtiss pusher planes with pistols. Year: 1913 Anyone have any details about Mexican rev & US intervention aside Hunt for Villa?? Looks like free for all war based on movies Ive seen.
  6. Wikpedia has Hill 327 in Vietnam, not Korea.
  7. Thanks, would have helped Im sure if any. no wonder raid went badly.
  8. Thought so, so NO guerilla forces in country then?
  9. Wkipediaied the Ploesti Raid & one thing stands out: No Intel from any if partisan units to the Allies on German AA defenses etc. or did I miss something. Or was area under total Nazi control & no gueriila efforts in area during raid.
  10. Whole topic alone for WHO IE Churchills Toyshop, docufodder alone, Radical
  11. If any German admin type worked in E Front behind Lines, may have been privvy to Nazi atrocities done to Russians, but those on the Western Front alas would never know, then I saw a episode on X Company of them seeking to take a camp survivor to London for his tale about the camps. Otherwise the Western Front would never know about E Front atrocities. My comment covers both E & Western Fronts.
