100-year-old former fighter pilot reunited with his plane

Colorado Springs man gets happy reunion with World War II plane he piloted

It’s amazing that a plane that had been buried as trash is now on the verge of flying again, and that its original (in-theatre) pilot – an ‘old man’ of 27 at the time – is still around to see it.

Thank you, this is awesome.

Dug out of ice or out of the ground, the P-38 seems like one that can almost always be made to fly again.

Absolutely Awesome. Thanks

Great story. Thanks. And now I have a new road trip to make: http://www.worldwariiaviation.org/
