HIROSHIMA 67TH ANNIVERSARY: REFLECTING
While attending the Thunder Over Michigan (TOM) Air Show this weekend with a gathering of P-51 Mustangs, other various WW II Warbirds and the first visit of the CAF's B-29, FIFI since 1989, I took pause to reflect upon the event of August 6, 1945. As FIFI banked over the flight line, I remembered all those VETS who were part of the event that changed history 67 years ago and helped bring about the end of WW II. I had the honor to talk briefly with two B-29 VETS, a tail gunner and flight engineer who described for me every move and sound FIFI made (more in a later Thread with pix and hopefully a brief bio) during her run up, fly-by and landing. My 2 and 1/2 year old grandson was in awe! Passing a moment of history onto future generations.
