That's him mate. Quick endings, eh?

The first air-to-air victory occurred on 3 November 1952 in a United States Marine Corps F3D-2 piloted by Major William T. Stratton, Jr. and radar operator Master Sergeant Hans C. Hoglind of VMF(N)-513.[7
Your control. Gonna watch some of that concert and head to bed. Cheers.

Unfortunately I now have an eighty mile round trip to see my mother, so it will have to be Open House.

Sounds like it should be a book "The Adventures of Norman the Nordic" Nope.

Not a Murphy product either, but you are in the right country

Why's that?
Have you thrown away your Leisure Aviation Directory?
