    he was close friend who went through enormous personal tragedy.
    he passed away on 8/2/2012.
    Here he is in happier times; visiting a flyable B-17 at Meacham Field in Fort Worth.
    Shot on my Hexar AF with the HX-14 flash...

    I'm sorry for your loss, and for his tragedy before passing.

    He knew where the expression "Give em The Whole Nine Yards" came from. It's the length of the ammo belts on the B-17 guns.
