As we prepare for the Indianapolis Air Show here in Indiana, I think we should all stop and think about how easy the performers make the acrobatics look.  When you read a thread like this (a great piece of research by Bill Pearce), it really puts the spotlight on the talent of those we watch during the air shows that take place around the country.  Bill shares in the post, that in the late 1940s many were lost just learning to fly the WWII warbirds before they were even deployed to fighter/bomber wings overseas.  So, on behalf of many fans, THANK YOU to all the performers for what you do.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
