So cool, I've been wondering whether WWII pilots were still around.  It has been a long time since WWII and I suppose someone 20 in 1945 would be about 93 now, about the age of a young WWII pilot or soldier.  Once they are gone I hope the memory of what they fought for is not forgotten, as we are still in a war where racial and ideology wars are fought.

Like riding a bike, but landing a Cessna on that carrier deck would have been easy for him compared to some of the landings he would have done back then. Great fun 😄

Very emotional for me to see that.  These guys were the greatest generation that gave me the life I have now.

God bless him.

So well said, the best thing ever if you go to a car or aircraft museum is to tail older gentlemen like these and listen to them talk about the old cars or aircraft.  I did that in the Reno Auto museum and had a great time enjoying their company.  They made the greatest free docents....
