Thank you Dave.  Here are a couple of photos of my Uncle Sam from WWII.  The first was taken during some training he had in Florida.  The second was taken with his beloved P-40.  The same airframe he was KIA during a dog fight in China.

Wow Jeff, you have some amazing aviation history in your family.  Thanks for sharing.  Really do appreciate and enjoy viewing your images.

My apologies if I've posted this somewhere on AzAP before.  I could not find it anywhere on the site, so I'm posting today.  Dad's squadron getting all fancy on a rainy morning at the ANG base at Sky Harbor.  In the 1960's the Copperheads were ready to intercept.  To help orient you to this location at PHX, the centerline of RWY 7R/25L would run right through the main hangar in this photo.  My dad's humble office and photolab was on the second floor of that hangar.  The 2000 aerial below shows the construction of 7R/25L and that old hangar before it was demolished.

While out at the Coolidge breakfast fly-in, I made the acquaintance of a gentleman (ex Army Vietnam pilot) that is on a quest to document the history of the Coolidge Army Airfield.  He has a hangar at Coolidge and we talked for about 30-minutes.  I took some photos of the display he had next to his airplane.  I've attached those photos below and also posted on the Coolidge thread.  Terrific stuff.
