Grey Eagles & P-51s

Thanks to Marty Lavin for bringing us back to this very special video. If you haven't seen it, you should. If you have, it's worth a re-run. Click on the link, then on the little box with the arrow in the lower right corner to enlarge it to full-screen, then on the "x" to eliminate the video control bar, sit back and "go with it." When it's finished, press your Escape key to get out of it.

Here's the intro:

Filmmaker and P-51 Mustang Pilot Chris Woods has put together a wonderful film that captures the emotional reunion between a humble WWII Mustang ace (Jim Brooks) and the historic plane he thought he'd never see again.

Inspired by the flood of memories triggered by this unimaginable encounter with a long lost friend, the 88-year old pilot finally breaks his silence, sharing his stories and experiences of war with the grandchildren who never thought they'd hear them.

Wood's interviews with Brooks, his grandchildren, and other airmen who were touched by the Mustang's role in history are cut together to create a compelling narrative that is framed in stunning high-definition photography.
