    Just joined the forum today and I'm excited about the opportunities to participate in a community of people with similar interests in WWII aviation. As an author and historian, I often find myself needing expert help with particular aircraft details and/or photographs, and this seems like an ideal community to mingle with.

    Cheers,

    I've lived here about 6 years, after spending the previous 10 in Western North Carolina. Man, I miss that! But I'm also very familiar with Pensacola. I earned my wings there (Naval Flight Officer) in 1982, and was medically retired there in '89. I then spent several years in a part-time staff position with the National Naval Aviation Museum.

    Welcome from central B.C. :hello2: You will get lots of useful info here from some of the best aviation minded people I've had the pleasure of meeting. (Probably a wise choice not to ask me anything though.)

    This is the place for info about ANYTHING in aviation, Airframes can tell you the correct color of the skivies worn by Polish flyers during the pacific campaign.
    PS it's not an asylum, I get regular day passes now, of course I still have to wear the ankle locator

    I grew up about a mile from the back gate to NAS Pensacola, right on the approach to the runway. Of course every time I go home I visit that great museum. Latest was a few month back and they had a two man Me-262. Also, a new hanger in the back. So, how did how did you end up in the Panama City area? Job?
