Please don't hold it against me. Trump has the same birthdate as me but a year earlier.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

You really should not have implied that the fireworks are not for him... (It's like telling somebody that Santa Claus isn't real)

Now I'm probably going to have to drive down there and give him a hug.

Funny you should mention that Pooch. My birth certificate has the 12 crossed out and 14 inserted.

My worst...I mean first...wife and I were married on July 4, 1976. A date not easily forgotten. And believe me, I've tried.

OTOH, I was born on May 31, 1954, exactly 24 years to the day after Clint Eastwood.


SALUTE TO ALL!
