I haven’t been able to figure out this is a unit or personal marking on this Emil. Any ideas?
And they could take yours and beat you.

Here we see a shiny, new 1941 Chrysler Town & Country showing out in front of a shiny, almost new DC-3. Almost new because PCA started flying the DC-3 in 1940.
I’m not much on dressing up (jeans, a polo type shirt and tennis shoes are my usual fare unless I’m in my work clothes) but it wouldn’t bother me much if that style of dress became the norm again…
Over the past couple of years I’ve really gotten into podcasts and found a really good one a couple of weeks ago.
Legends of the Old West is the main page through the production company and it’s listed as being available on Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Pocketcasts, Podcast Addict, Castbox, BeyondPod, Podbean, Downcast, PlayerFM, Breaker, RadioPublic and I found it on Spotify as well.
The first “season” is composed of several stand alone episodes on different subjects including several interviews related to Longmire and Deadwood. The rest of the seasons follow one subject or theme. I’ve listened to Seasons 1-4 over the past couple of weeks and have really enjoyed it.
Great GE ad from 1961. I’m not sure if there’s an actual aircraft there or not. It’s not an F-102 or 106 and that tail shape really rings a bell but I just can’t place it right now.
As for the title, always a favorite:
Last year I found Mike Duncan’s The History of Rome podcast. So far I’m about 35 episodes in and I like it very much. A couple of weeks ago I found his other podcast Revolutions. The first series covers the English Civil War (1642-51), The Protectorate (1653-59) and The Restoration (1660).
With that in mind, this video from the Royal Armouries caught my eye when it came up at the end of another video I was watching. I really wish the audio quality was better, but it is what it is.
I can hear his crew chief now. You say this bird picked up a vibration on that last mission L-T? Well there’s yer problem….
It’s been a while since the last Thunderbolt Thursday. Since we’re off tomorrow for Good Friday, does that make this Thunderbolt Thursday: Friday Came Early Edition?
In case I don’t get around to posting anything for a bit, have a Happy Easter!
