Ted -  My father flew P-51's, Mustangs, and Spitfires in WWII.  He ran away 
from home at 17 and joined the RCAF, transferred after the US got in the 
war and ended up as an Ace pilot with all kinds of medals.  He never talked 
about the war, but I have photos of him with his plane named "Martha" and 
decorated with very risque paintings of my mother.  The first time I ever 
flew, I went up with one of his friends in a crop-duster and we did all 
kinds of barrel rolls and loops.  I still love flying in small planes.

Have a great flight and a wonderful birthday.

With love,


Tina Manley, ASMP
