One Crashes, Another Takes Flight

While tragedy struck in Reno with the crash of P-51 Galloping Ghost, The Millie G was taking flight from Easterwoood Field. Almost same time, at least by local times. It is tragic whenever one of these fantastic machines crashes. However, it is equally or even more so exciting when one of them takes flight. I have been on hand for countless warbird takeoffs and flights, one for it's first flight after restoration (P-38 Scatterbrain Kid II). Each and every time it sends chills up my spine to see a piece of history take to the air. Art has a fantastic post up explaining that if you need an explanation, you wouldn't understand.
