Hey, that’s a World War II vintage training plane, isn’t it? Neato. It’s coughing smoke like a 1989 Chevy Citation, but other than that, it looks like it’s in fine shape. The guy flying it looks like a jaunty fellow. Low-key, just like all the fellows that learned to fly in that thing back in the day. I bet Jimmy Stewart learned to fly in one of those planes, or something similar. He was a B-17 pilot, for reals. He didn’t go Hollywood when he enlisted. He went to war.
It’s a mystery why the pilot in the video brought Liberace along for a ride in that nifty plane. The passenger was dressed like he was going windsurfing with John Kerry or something. What is it with people nowadays? Do you have to dress like a toddler for everything? I figure he kept giving infantile thumbs up motions to the pilot simply because the canopy was closed and he couldn’t ask for high fives continuously.
The people who learned to fly in that plane shook hands like men on the tarmac after they got back from bombing Ploesti. Dressing like a Tour de France runner-up and jumping out of a perfectly good airplane wouldn’t cut any ice with them. They were men. They wouldn’t have dressed to got to Gymboree after they graduated from eighth grade.
Olive drab. Look into it.
