Best darn photo of a Vindicator I've ever seen. It's a pre-war shot of an Enterprise "Bombing 6" plane, stolen from the archives of LIFE. No, there's no point to it being here, other than I wanted to put it up.
So there's stuff in the pipeline to look forward to! Just hope I have the time to work on them... Duck U classes start on the 22nd, the new fledgelings move in on the 18th. Yep, it's busytime at the Bookstore, and I'm scheduled for 48 hours next week. Who in the world writes the darn schedule anyway?
Oh right... me. Darn it.
Oh, Wind Indicators! The color photo reminds me of a book collection of WW2 color photos of USN aviation, that opened with a very nice story of David McCampbell. I have dig through my collection to find it again.
For some reason, much activity has come to a halt on account of using Crunchyroll to marathon Puella Magi Madoka Magica and watch Anohana (There is no way you can really marathon Anohana - for the simple reason you can not sit through all 11 episodes without any recovery time in between viewings.).

I have just read, and thoroughly enjoyed your Oct. 6, 2011 blog entitled The Flight to Nowhere. It is such a complete article on the topic that I'd like very much to post it in a yahoo group dedicated to the Battle of Midway, Shattered Sword; (yes, named after Parshall and Tully's book, but as far as I know neither of them are members). If you wish, you can access the group here.

The link I think LT wanted to show is this one, which I hope does work because it's a fine picture of a SB2U. If it doesn't work, go here and scroll down... lots of good pictures! Thanks for that, LT!
