A "good" landing is one from which you can walk away. It's a "great" landing if they can use the plane again.

Peter's WWII Fighter Flight

Video editing: George Marshall

Rather like having your brains sucked out during a very rough sea crossing. Just as well I didn't sign up for the aerial gunnery course.

The aircraft is the J-Bird, T-6, or "Texan." It was completed in September 1944 and used by the Navy as a fighter trainer. It is sufficiently similar in appearance to the Japanese "Zero" fighter that they were used in the Pearl Harbor movie. To fly it yourself call Kevin, and keep pulling back on the stick.
