    One thought on “The Pilots of Thunderbird Field: Where Aviation Legacies Took Flight. 1941-1945 and Beyond.”

    1. Great book, an interesting history lesson tied to an equally interesting family story. Amazing to see how far the aviation industry has come in just a few generations. I was only able to put it down once, and that was when I reluctantly finished it.
