    My name is Pat O'Brient,I'm 73yrs old,and retired. Have taken up an old hobby of mine, plastic model airplane building. Served 4 yrs in the USAF during Korean conflict(1951-1955) as a flight line mechanic on T-33's and changed over to B-25's and was on flying status as crew chief also. Married to the same lady for 50yrs(widower for 3yrs) two girls both married, and have 5 grandchildren. Better stop for now before I drive everyone to tears.

    Hi Pat from across the pond , glad to meet you, welcome to the site.
    I should warn though what ever FBJ Adler say about me its not true unless it's a compliment in which case I agree whole heartedly.
    I went on vacation a couple of weeks ago and met a guy who was a RAF Squadron leader in the early part of the Korean war, he flew Mossies and when on recon had a couple of US P51 wing men for escort, He never did the convertion to jet propulsion and regrets it to this day.
