The note which accompanied the photos.
some shots taken from our B-25 this weekend while flying around
Muskegon, MI. Also included is a shot of my myself with Joe Mallard,
I took my Dad (LTC Joe
Mallard) to the Muskegon, Mich. airshow, on Saturday to see Tondelayo.
The good folk there gave my Dad VIP treatment and he (and I) had a
great time. We ended up staying over nine hours there talking to the
crew and the public, and enjoying the show. Dad was even interviewed by
the local newspaper. We brought Dad's original A-2 jacket as well as
photos and documents, and the crew enjoyed checking it all out. I'm
sure Dad will contact you soon with all the details and photos. Thanks
a lot for sending Tondelayo's schedule! We definitely recommend that
other Rough Raiders, their family, and friends see this bird. The
Collings Foundation has done an excellent job and are great people.
Contact Doug Birkey at the Foundation and let them know you are coming,
and they will roll out the red carpet.
PS. My brother Ron is working on
getting the B-25 'Tootsie'
available for the Reno convention. Unfortunately Tondelayo's air show
schedule keeps her from attending there.
Now is this Happy Faces ??
to bed for the night!
