Recommended Posts


Thanks for sharing, Rooster. I still know hardly anything about those aviators,

No need to apologize Rooster, you wanted to share a good book with the rest of us. There should never be an issue with posting items of interest here simply because they may have been posted before. With all the new people coming in this sort of info is likely unknown to them, so the only way they may come across it is if it keeps showing up in threads just like yours Sir.

 

Cheers!

 

Lou
