Assunto:  Before died?
 
Mensagem:  Never could feel affection for the B-26s.  Very weird armament.  Think they used one in the film "Always" (Richard Dreyfus) as a plane for fighting fires.  B-25s are so small!  They are like pregnant Piper Cubs.  And the US flew them off a carrier deck to bomb Japan?  Wow!  B-17s and B-24s are nice too.

I used to volunteer with the US Department of Forestry.  I would stand shifts in fire lookout towers.  One tower was near the town of Running Springs.  During WWII, a B-26 ploughed into the mountainside just below the tower on a night training mission.  Someone screwed up.  From what I saw, I assumed the plane was coming in from the north to land at either the old field in San Bernardino or at the still in operation March Air Force Base.  Fifty feet higher and it would have cleared the mountain.  Relatives of the crew still come to the site to pay homage.  After 65 years, they still find pieces of the plane.
