In the early 1980s, a group called the Fighting Air Command (FAC) was formed to fly WWII aircraft. Then, a number of the aircraft used in making the movie The Blue Max came up for sale in Ireland, and were purchased and shipped to Hartlee Field, near Denton, Texas. There, many of the planes were reassembled and flown by members, including myself. These are some notes and other documents either received with the planes or developed by myself to help others fly them. The F.A.C. was disbanded in the late 1980s and both the WWII and WWI aircraft sold to various new owners. There are also some photos of WWI aircraft, including my own Dr.I Triplane and other Blue Max planes, plus my father, who served in France in WWI. An_Aeroplane_on_the_Stocks_sm.jpg (16106 bytes)
