My dad, Alexander (AB) Bell was a C-47 pilot who flew the Hump. I was always fascinated by the stories he would share of his experiences flying the Himalayas. After his passing, his inspiration lead me to purchasing my first airplane, a Piper Cherokee which my son Ben and I learned to fly in. Ben went on to build an RV-8 and I purchased an RV-4 and later an RV-7 which I still have. I hope to one day experience flying s C-47.
You guys did it right...more vodka lol...wish I had been there. Congratulations!
