Hello and Happy New Year WarBirdBabe Followers!
We thought you might like to see our viewer statistics for 2010. I thought they were interesting and encouraging since we’re a “one gal show” at this point – with lots of room for expanding our photo galleries and stories.
We would love to hear your thoughts about the blog, perhaps suggest some interviews you’d like to see in the future, or request postings of your favorite War Bird Aircraft and last, but not least, storey topics you’d like covered.
We’d also like to post your interesting photos of War Bird Aircraft or Military Service Men and Women. All we need is an accurate description of who, what, where and when … and, if you don’t have all the details, perhaps one of our WarBirdBabe followers may have the answers you need!
Currently we’re editing a fantastic two-hour interview with Bob Hoover where he discusses the humble beginnings of the Reno National Championship Air Races and his current business venture.
Another video will air this year with Jet Pilot Curt Brown and Journalist Guy Clifton of the Reno Gazette.
We’ll also be posting more than 500 photos throughout the year from the recent Air Races and are in the process of accumulating photos from the archives of fans whose parents and/or grandparents served in WWII as Bomber Pilots and/or Crew.
Many thanks to all who have provided interviews and to those who have visited the WarBirdBabe blog and have taken the time to make comments in 2010 – we appreciate that very much.
We hope to see you again and again in 2011 and look forward to providing an outstanding War Bird Aviation site – one worth telling your aviation friends about and visiting often!
God Bless and God Speed to all for this new year…
