One boy and his airplane. Chip is a sixteen year old boy with a Piper J-3 Cub seaplane named Li'l Windy. He knows how to fly. He's been flying with his father for years. But now he is alone and the sky becomes his classroom. Though he does survive, every flight is an adventure, a great learning experience, and excellent preparation for the boy who wants to become a professional pilot. In fact you may wonder why commercial airline pilots are not required to have this kind of background. It's fun, but it's learning the hard way, discovering things as tangible as aerodynamics and as deep as how to live an entire lifetime. If you have a young person who's not all tha ...

SO YOU WANT TO READ A STORY AND YOU WANT IT TO BE TRUE TOO! My note: LeRoy Funk (8/16/1915 - 10/23/1996) was my mother’s brother and he dictated this story to his wife Delores before he passed. He came from a small town in South Dakota and had 5 sisters and 2 brothers. I found the crew information from the 8th Air Force Historical Society webpage. (Aircraft Missing in action from August 8, 1943) He was a (TSgt) gunner on a B-17 and was shot down near Antwerp Belgium. He eventually made it back to England. This is his story as he told it.
U.S. ARMY AIRPLANES & PERSONNEL, 1908-1918 A photo journey back in time T.R. Lazorishak

In the early 20th century, aviation was in its infancy. Military aviation began to take shape. The U.S. Army Signal Corps' "Aeronautical Division" was designated as the first military aviation unit in the U.S. armed forces. With the help of men like the Wright Brothers (of Dayton, Ohio) and aircraft builder, Glenn Curtiss, things began to develop. This is a photographic journey showing airplanes and key personnel of the time (1908-1918). The United States Air Force of today has those early aviators of the U.S. Army to thank for its success and growth.
