The pilots did get close enough to wave. I have one shot where the Russian Pilot held up a ‘Playboy’ magazine he was reading. I cannot find it.
The pilots were like the Rebel and Yankee, except it was not a shooting war and they seemed to enjoy the encounters.
AT times I like to think back to time aboard ship, I told the skipper I would stay forever if he allowed Sherry aboard to live. I will never forget his words, “There will never be a female aboard a fighting ship.”
Can you smile at that?
I am working at a disadvantage. so I cannot past pictures where I want them. No auto tonight...
