Ok, I watched the 2nd video... memories for me, not flying but fixing them. I recognize a lot of the faces in there... I even saw myself once, at the hockey game. 441 was playing a team from the base we were flying from. Got our asses kicked if I remember right :) We cleared out of the arena for supper then went back in to watch an NHL game that same night. Checker Checker!
