Yesterday was veterans day. My father was a marine and a pilot, and just like I find my mojo on a motorcycle, he found his in the air. To this day, I’m a sucker for an air Museum. I’ve been driving by falcon field on the way to work for months now, and I’ve wanted to check it out. Veterans day seemed like a good day to do it.
Falcon field had a short military history: It was opened 4 months before Pearl Harbor was bombed, with the Intent to train British and American Pilots. 3 years after the war it was deeded to the city of Mesa as a municipal Airport. Its a small, but pretty cool museum.
A helluva good day. I came home and watched P-51 dogfights. I hope you had a happy veterans day!
