He told us that my former military unit from Martinsburg WV would be there with an aircrew and a C-17. We could not find Patrick during the event, but I photographed the 167th AW aricrew of SRA Drake, MSGT Joe Windle, LTCOL Marty Timko, and CAPT Ryan Gavina. We gave them four flashing US flag pins and sent the photo to the unit's newspaper Plane Talk. We also viewed the unit's Super Connie in the hangar. We also talked to members of the Capital-Wing-of-the-Airmens-Preservation-Society World War II reinactor group. One was a Devastor fan and I told him of my meeting with George Gay of the Midway WWII battle. We aslo talked to the pilot and navigator of a Russian/ Czech built jet and a B-25 Mitchell bomber...
