Maybe I'm dense, but I don't see why that doesn't qualify as one.

I had always thought that a prang was something of minor damage. When I first saw the picture I thought the plane had broken it's back. My comment was meant as a little joke. My fault. Sorry if I hurt your feelings. Sincerely.

Well what is it? You state your confused by the word "prang" or you tried to make a joke. They don't equate to just one. And who's feelings you referring too? My list was a joke as well, but without any confusion .... at your expense.

Sorry about that.

Sincerely!

You seem to have an extensive collection of pictures. How do you collect them? Auctions, garage sales, flea markets etc?

Prang sounds good to me. As they say don't let the +++++++ grind you down.
Love the photographs and keep putting them on this forum it makes my day seeing them.

DADE: Not a problem at all. I don't mind posting them when I find them. They do NO good sitting somewhere where no one see's them. There's been a lot of people who earned the right to be remembered and ALL these old pics are the least I can do. Never forget!!!

aerojock: No disrespect or weirdness :), just funnin as well. Life's too short (Unless someone REALLY pisses me off lol).

Where do I get/find/pilfer/steal/purchase/own/harvest/and whatever stupid word I forgot?.

-My own purchased photos
-My father's albums
-Vets albums
-Family of Vets albums
-ebay
-flickr
-facebook
-Wikimedia Commons
-Google
-too many internet websites to list here
-stolen from people who don't know it (lol kidding/or not)

Just checked, 868,650 pics on my home server. Created a monster!! ugh!

What'cha looking for, I'll see if I have it/can find it. Happy to do it.

It's become a hobby.

Thanks for the offer but right now I am not looking for anything. I will let you know if I do need something.

I too created a beast,collection of pictures, but only ones I took myself. I grew up in Harlingen when the CAF was based there and got hooked on warbirds. Went to a lot of shows and took a lot of pictures. Wish they had digital cameras back then. I do like restoring old pictures so if I can help you in that area let me now. It's a hobby

All is good, no weirdness here(Unless someone REALLY pisses me off lol).

Wait I do have a request. A friend of mine is going to do a data plate mustang build but so far he doesnt have a good picture of it from the war. If you ever see any pictures of this P-51 will you let me know. He continually searches the internet but so far not too much info.


"Little Bouncer"
P-51D-10-NA Mustang
Markings and paint scheme/livery
YJ-O "Little Bouncer" flown by Capt. Gordon B. Compton
Assigned to 351FS, 353FG, 8AF USAAF

Thanks.
