    Talking Lucky Day

    Yesterday (wednesday) I saw a Sturmgeshutz III Ausf. F or G passing before my eyes on a transporter truck, a few hours later hearing a noise I looked up to the sky and saw a P51 Mustang flying by.
    I live near Antwerp Airport.

    OK you can start hating me

    PS: I should have, somewhere, a photo of a B17 or B24 in flight over RAF Waddington a few years ago, I will have to have a look for it and post it if I find it
