    My father was a WW2 B-24J and B-29 pilot. He was in the 489th BG. I was born 9 months after the end of WW2. I am a retired engineer and military aviator. I flew the F-101F from 1972 to 1981 with the 111th FIS of the Texas Air National Guard. My current interest in aviation is flying R/C WW2 warbirds.

    You need to start a thread or two about your -101 adventures and of your dad.

    Any pics are always appreciated!

    My father's crew was selected to fly a brand new B-24J to England in August 1944. Here's a picture of them in front of the plane before leaving. I'll post more pictures and the crew members name later. My father, Lt Ed Brant, is in the front row on your right and was the pilot/ac.
