    There is quite the article in the February issue of Warbirds International about
    the planes used for this TV show. Seems they were not well kept, and had
    lots of problems.

    If you want these, you better get them quick. Stage6 will remove them.

    My Grandfather called Boyington after the showed started to air and called him out for it... Boyingtons' reply was that it was all in fun and that it was adding to the mythos of the Blacksheep Legacy....

    No he did not get rich off the advisor role in which he served as for the series... His book didnt really tank, but was filled with alot of misinformation and lies.....

    Thanks for that I d/l as many as I could before it closed.
    Hmm, a mixture of nice plane shots and utter crap as per the usual Hollywood treatment.
    Not a patch on Piece of Cake IMHO.

    I have volume 1 and 2 and love them. You can find them on ebay. Boyington also makes a cameo appearance in an episode.

    The series was basically all fiction, with some small truths thrown into the mix.... Hollywood writers dont quite do it as well as history would like... Even the guys names were made up...
