Piggyback B-17 Bomber

Aggiunto
 
The amazing story of a World War II pilot, Capt. Glenn Rojon, whose B-17 bomber collided in mid-air with another B-17 and became locked to it in piggy-back fashion. The pilot kept control to allow crew members to bail out then he and his co-pilot guided the crippled craft to a crash landing that destroyed both planes, but they survived with no major injuries! Warbird legend, Bill Harrison tells the story. (www.flyingmag.com) Altro...

..the selfless sacrifice and bravery of our veterans deserves special respect and national appreciation, hopefully never to be forgotten.

That is something Congress should keep in mind when the budget for the VA comes up.
Just sayin'

Preach, try it again and just give it a lot longer to load up. Several items (pictures mainly) on that Flying page are loading at the same time as the movie is buffering. If your bandwidth is average to slow, they have to finish loading before the player will kick off in some instances.

Hope you get it to go as it is well worth the effort.

10-4, I'll do that and slow ain't the name for my bandwidth. All I got down here is 1.5 DSL. Sad part is, until about 4 years ago, we still had dial up, and no fiber run coming my way. LOL.

That's definitely the problem then. You can scroll down the page and watch the syrup slow loading of the pictures and when the last one of many fills in, a few seconds later the movie will start. You might have time to make some popcorn in the microwave! :)
