National Geographic Channel had a great little show last night if you didn't see it, "Heroes of WWII: The Mighty Eighth Air Force". I'm sure it'll be on again.  :bigthumb:

Wish I had caught that. I scanned their upcoming schedule but it's not in there.

I'll keep an eye out for it to play again.

Strange to think that the Italian Airforce also took part in the bombing of the UK.

Looks like the tail of a Concord behind it.

Whenever I seer any Grumman amphibian plane I'm always reminded of the film Murphy's War, with Peter O'Toole. It's not the greatest WW2 flick out there but I saw it when I was young and it stuck with me.
If you have not seen it I'd recommend giving it a look. Some great shots of flying along the Orinoco River and a requisite 70's downbeat ending.
