As a Student Naval Aviator I happened to be in the right place at the right lime. In 1986. I was in ihe middle of flight school in Pensacola. Florida. It was the 75th Anniversary of naval aviation, and on top of that, the movie \»Top Gun\» had just been released.
Go back fifty-five years to 1941. and picture young men with their minds on the air. watch-ing Pathe film clips from the air war in Europe just before the feature film starring Ralph Bellamy. Fred Mcmurrav and Erroll Flynn. The movie, of course, was \»Dive Bomber\» and I cannot help but think that young men of that era made up their minds to be Navy pilots inspired by the classic lines of Fred Mcmurray\’s Grumman F3F-2.
