    Awesome. Watching the video portion of the Mustang made me recall seeing the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends in 2007, in Columbus Ohio.

    It was something I cannot describe. So many Mustangs. The smell, the sounds. To me the best part was walking down the display area. They would pull a Mustang, or several, from the line by tow motor. They would doing thier flying routine and then tow them back and park them on the display line you are walking through.

    To touch, fell the heat, and smell the plane that you just watched flying. Incredible!

    No pictures. A friend I was with took some decent video. Niether he or I am good enough on computers to post on YouTube.

    But if you do a search, look at the ones from Columbus, Ohio in 2007.

    It was better than ANY airshow I have ever seen, and I really don't think I will EVER see a better one!

    Seeing and touching one of these planes at a museum is nice, but smelling them and feeling the heat coming through thier skin after you watched them fly is altogether another experience.

    Bill, really, really good. The music gives me the same feel as the music from Gettysburg, Saving Private Ryan and Glory. Along with speeches, very powerful. A good cry never hurt any man.

    Hm, there's a pic of a plane and some text. Then there's an incredibly slowly loading shield, and when I click the shield, the browser window just goes black.

    Great web site.

    It's not only the content and the poignant speeches by Roosevelt and Churchill but the music - really evocative and stirring stuff.

    I think I recognized part as being from "Band of Brothers".

    That is a cool website. I came across it a day or two back when a post was made about the Dottie Mae.
