    Theres an aspect of that first picture that strikes me. How a thing of beauty can be an instrument of death.

    In my private view, military aircraft are nothing but a mere delivery tool of ordinance though I may not be so emotional about them as other patriotic enthusiasts.

    The B-29 was a symbol of super technology for my father and a symbol of disaster for my mother.
    I have inherited both views but, for me, it is a symbol of common topic between you and me in this forum :)
