Such a touching story, well done to William Lorton for taking the time to trace, and contact John Blythe, really interesting to watch.

How lovely for John to see the footage of the film he had never seen before,  when he landed the plane, and knowing he will be able to keep that film.

Very interesting to listen to John with reliving so much of his time there, and meeting family members of Jim Savage, wonderful for him.

What a great link and thank you for sharing it, Nordog!

My Glen is fascinated by things like this and can't wait until he's able to view it - wahooo! - and thanks again.

One thing not mentioned is though no weapons on these recon planes, they still managed to fly some horrendous missions with little casualties. If that guy had been flying as a fighter pilot, he may not have been with us now.
