I met 8 of them today at the museum. It was great. I have been trying to do this for some time and things would always come up.

you lucky bastard, tell them to get back to NY/NJ, btw you look like a midget next to the p47 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Also did they sign your jacket? Who did you think was the funniest one also did they tell you any stories or just was a regular chat.

If you can type up the conversation which im sure you remember it would be appreciated.

Basically it was just converstaion. I told them about what we do here and what our squad is doing as in trying to represent them. I diodnt get anyone to sign my jacket.... I will be ready next time though... All I had was a pen .... the next time i will have a wide sharpie with flourescent indelible ink..LOL... It was great though.. and I almost missed it. I was on my way home and I was checking my messages on my phone.. I saw I had a mesaage from 99th_Obsidian.... who lives here in Va. I decide to call him and when he told me they were at the Museum I almost ran off the road... I ran home .. snatched up my camera.... made a quick CD with some screenshots and some movies.... and dashed out of the house. I manged to get some autographs in a book..... I had to but the book at the museum because I was in such a hurry I forgotto breing one... it was almost 2 when I found out about it.. and I didnt want to miss them.

That's a great experience Bearcat. I got to meet many Tuskegee pilots a long time ago when I was younger, but I couldn't really appreciate their contributions as much as I would be able to now.

Oh, and that Jug is ginormous. The 29 in the background isn't too small either. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
