On April 4, 1943, ten American prisoners-of-war and two Filipino convicts commenced perhaps the most impossible mission of WWII – they broke out of the Davao Penal Colony, an allegedly escape-proof Imperial Japanese Army prison plantation in the Philippines. This extraordinary documentary is told through the eyes of Lt. Colonel William Edwin Dyess. For more information go to http://4-4-43.com/

Saturday’s Mustang Stampede, put on by the CAF Museum, was a big success for the High Sky Wing this year. Not only did we bring in some money from lunch sales (thanks to all who prepared and served), but we also sold and raffled rides in our PT-19 (Thanks to Michael Clinton and his crew for that idea). Rides sold for $195 and the raffle tickets were $5. We sold rides to Mr. Mark Harding, Ms. Cari Eisele, Ms. Heath May and our own Col. Jamie Linebarger (Jamie will be taking her ride at a later date). The raffle was won by the venerable H.A. Tuck, who generously donated it to Ms. Shirley Qualia (she is the owner of the restored Model T that always draws a lot of attention at the Stampede).
Michael Clinton, Buffy (behind the sign), Jamie Linebarger and Alan Haskin admire their handiwork.
