Hello Plane Folks,This week I bring you a short essay on what it feels like to lean out the open end of a B-25 to get up close and personal with the P-51 "Lady B". It's the last of my essays about my experiences at the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends, which was held back in 2007. I decided to publish it to mark announcement of the GML's new web site-- http://www.gatheringfoundation.org/ You'll also notice that MaxAir2Air looks a bit different. I've updated the site to prepare it for the ability to put advertising on the "Connections" page. It's about time that the site earned its keep, so-to-speak. Also on the Connections page, you'll find a wordless essay on the Lone Star Air Museum, before the Hurricane struck. Enjoy! http://maxair2air.com/ Max
