A high overcast killed the sun about 30 minutes early so we missed the lightning bolt prop and orange tint for most of the shots...

Thanks for sharing the story and pics Chas.
I'm sure most if not all the folks on this thread would want to shake your Dad's hand and say Thank You!

Meant to post this here the other day and screwed it up.

My Dad and I headed up to the Geneseo Warbird Airshow this weekend, first time ever. Friday was fly in and practice day, and it wound up being the best day. Because he wore an 11th Airborne hat, he was recognized by the Liberty Jump Team. By the end of the day, we had been invited to take pack chutes and to take a 1 hour flight aboard a 70 year old C-47, the type of aircraft he jumped from in the South Pacific. We met so many amazing people, and he was treated so graciously by everyone we met. A special thanks for the Return to Normandy organization who treated him so well and gave us both the ride of a lifetime.


Looking back 70 years







Regards,
Chas

One word awesome what a gesture for me this photo says it all.
And good for you to be able to spend a day like that with your father.

Pretty neat, Donald. I'm amazed at the seating, that you guys get actual seats, not those flimsy plastic things we get here... Glad the butler got you out

Dear Lady Gray,

It was so nice to see you and Sir Donald last Friday. I trust that Sir Donald has recovered from all the excitement. Frankly I thought that three cameras was overdoing it a bit but such is the enthusiasm of youth.

Nice to see Sir Donald's improved mobility. You where quite right, he does get a bit frustrated with walking around in circles. But as you said, once he gets the other hip done, straight lines will be possible.

I was quite shocked to see Sir Donald driving a car again (but not half as shocked as the car). I am afraid I am unable to explain the unfortunate incident with not being able to lock the car because the engine was still running. This despite having the car keys in his hand. Do you think he's been hot wiring his own car again?

The good folks at Yeovilton have made several improvements following last years difficulties. The PA speakers where mounted at a low hight so giving us a clear arc of fire. In fact they where just as we left them last year after Sir Donald had finished doing the local modifications so no need for the cutting gear this time.

Another improvement was that ice cream was back on the menu !!! Thanks for reminding me about the old pills in the ice cream trick that got the meds down the old duffer a treat.

As you warned me getting Sir Donald to sit down was difficult enough getting him to stay down was another thing entirely. I'm sorry about the rope burns hopefully they will have faded by the time he is next due on the Antiques Road Show.

Thank you once again for the wonderful supper. I have no idea how you manage to fit in all the cooking with just now being the hight of your tourist season at Gray Towers.

As per your request, I have attached an invoice for my days work. As agreed I have billed you at my standard Child Care Day Rate.

Yours Sincerely

Nick
