TBM Avengers, talk about small worlds. One of my good friends whom I met only a few years ago was in the back seat of the third airplane when he was only 17, 20 years ago. We found this out by accident.

A couple of years ago we lost our best and most prolific warbird writer/pilot, Jeff Ethell. Only a month or so before his death, Jeff and I had a terrific time shooting the picures below. Although he had little time in the airplane, he flew the slow speed formation like he was born to the machine. He was the first person I called when we launched Flight Journal. He's another friend we'll all miss.
