    Hello my name is Shawn and I just chanced upon your website and I'm so glad I found it.

    My wife, son and I live in Hawaii. I'm a cinematographer and my wife works at a tv station.

    My father was a Vietnam Huey pilot, then helicopter and C-130 pilot for the Coast Guard.

    My Grandfather was a B-25 mechanic during WW II. I have some pictures of his I need to scan and post here.

    I love the piston warplanes of WW II, facinated is more like it.

    I am in the process (almost finished) of making a short film about the impact the Japanese attack had on some of the civilians on December 7th 1941. My story takes place near Kaneohe Marine Base which was hit hard that morning. Does anyone know the exact makeup of the group of planes which attacked the Marine Base? Exact timings? How fast would they have been approaching and at what altitude?

    Thanks I'm excited to find this site and to get to know the gang here.

    Aloha,
    Shawn

    No no Lanc, you misunderstood him, he said the Lancaster was a bucket of puss, therefore the English had to rely on the USAAF to win the war and save them from the Jerries!;)

    Welcome to the site mate:)

    Welcome to the site.

    That was pretty funny up there Lanc but before you slam syscom. You are blind to anything that was not made in merry old England.

    Hi Sunday Wind, welcome
    If you care to hang around for a few more posts I'm sure you will get you questions answered unfortunately its a different kind of wind rather than Sunday Wind they tend to suffer from sometimes on this site and it has a habit of blowing them off course.:D
