What horrendous times we live in~THIS DAY IN HISTORY~ No wonder we need to stay positive!

Lieutenant Colonel Joseph O. Fletcher

ski-modified U.S. Air Force C-47 

Lieutenant Colonel William P. Benedict



Just for a change we will have a quick look at everything of note that occurred on this date in history. And how scary is this list? So much war and death, in fact we even have Japenese war trials in the midst of the Cold War congressional hearings.

So what's good?
One or two things so look closely!! Having featured James Brown recently let's take a look at past progress and the development of flight. A ski-modified plane lands at the North Pole piloted by the two gentlemen pictured above. Now that's Braap!! Evidence of a fearless adventurous spirit, reaching for new goals. Sadly war is likely to always be with us but let's keep our focus on the sunny side of life and keep spreading love and success.
