Here are some rare color videos of the aircraft and pilots of WWI that were taken in color.

I received this from Harry1 in Australia and thought many of you would love to see them. It might bring back memories for some guys,too.
These were the guys that changed warfare forever.

Thanks Harry!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Jim, Thanks for that. Was attached to the Pacific Fleet wing in the late 50”s when the slant decks was coming into their own.

Can give a like example, akin to woodworking,,,the attitude, and how much you put into it, is directly proportion to what you get out. There will always be the things that you do not seem to grasp or understand as to why. If you let that part slant you attitude and get the upper hand in your way of handling the situation, then the rest will invariably reflect this in your works final result.

Thanks for posting that link Jim. Possibly the best of its kind that I have seen. I will watch it in bits and pieces as it is so good I don’t want to rush through it.
To see the human face of WW1 and WW2 is very moving. Thank you Jim.
