Enola Gay Cockpit from Pilots of America Message Board 
Here's an interesting view of the office space of the B-29 Enola Gay.
Go to full screen, the button on the right end of the controls and pan around. Quite a busy place. It chills me to think how incredibly young these pilots were. And how few hours they had when handed over the keys to such a monster. Paul Tibbets had a bunch of time, but the average line pilot only had a few hundred hours total time. ...

From Evan Flies
Hi Everybody!
Sorry we didn't send out Holiday cards this year.
I've been really busy with school this year but I did get a couple of cool interviews over Thanksgiving and Winter break
I finally was able to get together with my friend, and amazing aerobatic pilot, Vicky Benzing and do an interview
My dad and I went to Coast Guard Island in Alameda and got to tour the new USCG Cutter Waesche
I got to interview the super nice USCG helicopter pilot LTJG Matt Kroll
My dad also wants you to know about Kiva where he makes small loans to people all around the world
He also goes here every morning when he drinks his coffee and reads the news.  Hunger site he clicks to donate food, books, etc. it's free!
I hope you have a great 2011!
Evan, Tim, and Lisa

Reaching for the sky - Brattleboro Reformer

"I’ve wanted to be a pilot ever since I saw an airplane for the first time," he said.
The childhood memory of being 7-years-old and going up in a plane at an air show has stuck with him all these years. It was the first time he was ever allowed to "fly" a plane.
"The pilot let me fly for five seconds when we were up there, which was really cool," Sargent said. ...
