Sample text

D. Smith, a local attorney and special friend of his, to give Glennis away. The wedding was held on February 26, 1945. The young newlyweds spent their honeymoon in Del Mar, California, at an air corps rest and relaxation center. There was another special young couple honeymooning at Del Mar— Bud and Eleanor Anderson. Chuck was surprised and delighted to see his good friend Bud and to meet his new wife. After two weeks, Glennis headed back to Oroville to pack up her things. Chuck and the Andersons headed off to Texas.

Previously, machine guns in the Mustang had been mounted at a slant, which added to the likelihood of ammunition jams. The P-51 D Mustang, and the very similar P-51 K Mustang, served in combat in World War II for almost a year. The planes’ sleek design, improved firepower and visibility, as well as their high-speed and long-range capacities served the United States and her allies quite well. Perhaps that is why, even today, the Mustang remains an aircraft that is near and dear to most fighter pilots’ hearts.

Shortly thereafter, the three men were on their way to Buffalo, New York. In Buffalo, they toured the Bell Aircraft Corporation Plant. They were briefed on the ins and outs of the X-1. They were shown Bell Aircraft’s laboratory. Then, they were allowed to actually check out the X-1. The men were nervous and excited. Not one of them knew who would be flying the X-1 yet, and each wanted a shot at the job. Each of them loved airplanes. Just seeing the X-1 would be the experience of a lifetime for most airplane lovers, but these three guys knew one of them would soon actually be flying it.
