Compelling Stories: Jim Brooks, WWII Ace

We all knew that last years Gathering of Mustangs and Legends was a monumental event. Compelling and inspirational stories were documented there, and it isn’t until now that we are beginning to get genuine glimpses of what that event was able to do. I’m confident that many more stories, like this one, will come from GML 2007. I can’t wait to see them all.

This story is of Jim Brooks, the WWII ace who piloted the P-51, February. The most touching element of this story is how the restoration of this aircraft has inspired and touched the lives of Jim’s grandchildren who are adults now. Trust me, you’ll enjoy this trailer.
