Inspired by SFC Mark Merino post, here are some of our trip to the National WWII Aviation Museum last weekend.

These are mostly of their restoration area, where they take aircraft that have been in the south pacific jungles for decades and turn them into flyable aircraft.

The B-25 you see took part on the Doolittle Raid over Japan, part of history right there!

Lt Kline was my cousin too. His mother was my great grandmother's first cousin. Their maiden names was Harding as was his middle name. He died in 1967 of cancer. His brother Stanley was also an Air Force pilot.
