Weather you enjoy a particular era or aspect of history, history tends to repeat itself. "Don't let your curiosity hold you back!"

"Pictures, not letters, from Iwo Jima !"

P51 Mustang.

The purpose of the U.S. invasion of Iwo Jima was to take the island’s two larger airfields. Without them they could not properly conduct air raids over Japan. Thus, the airfields on the island provided essential repair facilities for the returning B29 Bombers and Fighter Escorts.

When a North American P-51 of the 78th FS, 15th Fighter Group came in for a landing at its base on Iwo Jima, Bonin Islands, it slid into the 45th FS P-51 "Foxy" setting it on fire, then nosed over and fell on the wing of another plane . Both planes are beyond repair and probably the third one because of the damaged wing. 10 March 1945.

The "Enola Gay" B-29 Superfortress Cockpit Tour.

Join Colonel Paul W. Tibbets Jr., 

Pilot and Aircraft commander,

as he preflight checks his bomber

prior to take-off on 6 August 1945.

This is an awesome look at the cockpit of the "Enola Gay", the B-29 that dropped the first atomic bomb on Japan to end WW 2. As you can see, the interior was not "plush" by any stretch of the imagination. I assume that the pilots sat on their parachutes. . . .
