Thanks. A friend of mine in Memphis took that picture of me flying the T-6 waaaay back when I used to fly and have fun. You know, before I got tangled up with this ol' B-29. ;-)

Nah, it's just one of those "optical illusions." There's a levee at the end of the runway which puts the camera eye level with a moderately low approach. No cameramen were injured in the making of that picture. ;-)

Elroy,
That's picture gives me nightmares!

[/b]"Sweepers-sweepers man your brooms, give the ship a clean
sweepdown fore and aft. Sweep all ladders, ladderwells and passageways.
The fantail is closed for dumping. The incinerator is closed for dumping-open for burning.
The smoking lamp is lit in all authorized spaces.
Now sweepers."
