Subject: GRAY EAGLES FILM BY CHRIS WOODS
Filmmaker and P-51 Mustang Pilot Chris Woods has put together a wonderful film that captures the emotional reunion between a humble WWII Mustang ace (Jim Brooks) and the historic plane he thought he'd never see again.
I got this in an email from my cousin.
Loved it, got a lump in my throat. I lost two family friend, Vets from WW2 in the last three months. And I miss them horribly. One was 2 weeks ago. Bless their hearts. Hope I learned something from them, that I can pass on.

Great! I just forwarded this to a friend who is a P-51 Ace. I'm sure that he will enjoy it.
Boy, that's Kleenex time for me.
I have the distinct honor of meeting these men once in a while at the museum. www.freedomisntfree.org
As well as meeting the family of our local P-51 pilot (the late) Lt. Charles Bailey.
This story comes home the most when I look back on the time I arranged a flight in a 1940 Waco Biplane for my daughter to show her what her what the grandfather she never knew did before he died in a Crop Duster accident in 1952. He was Navy Air (PBY's) in WW2.
I spend a little time each week seeing to it that the memories of these men and the planes they flew are never forgotten.
How sepcial. Remember to hug those Grandparents or parents while you still can.

Heroes, every damn one of them !
Makes me miss my father. He was a quiet man who tried to convince us that he didn't have anything special to tell about his time in the south Pacific during WWII. They were all heroes.
