The Most Beautiful Thing You’ll See Today
It may not be the same for Bob Brocklehurst anymore (he needed help when he boarded the plane) but this experience just opened a floodgate full of memories. Besides, he is the very definition of what a hero is. And the moment he steps in, the muscle memory just kicks in. I wish I will still have the same passion for aviation when I reach his age.
According to Robert Goebel, “It was pretty good in the climbing department too, and accelerated very fast in a dive. But the thing that really set the Mustang apart from any other fighter, friend or foe, was its range. With a 75-gallon tank slung under each wing, it could perform the unheard-of: It could fly six-hour missions.”
It’s a great, heartwarming story. He’s a real inspiration for everyone. Thank you for your service and sacrifice, Sir. We will never forget all that you’ve done for the country!
