I confess, I had wanted to be a Soldier since I was knee high, so I never did give much thought to vintage military aircraft. Growing up in Columbus with Wright Pat down the road, by rights I should have paid more attention. Maybe it is a touch of sentimentality I am getting in my old age, but I am starting to see the romance with these obsolete war birds .
These machines were made in a time well before computers and certain air superiority. Even if you cannot appreciate the birds, you can sure appreciate the grit for the men that flew them.
