High Wire Act over Zamperini Field

My apologies for the bad focus (the wires are not the main subject)...but I did manage to get the high flying WWII vintage war birds into the photo.

I recently finished reading the excellent Unbroken: A WWII Story of Survival, Resiliance, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand, a biography of World War II hero and Olympic runner Louis Zamperini, who is from the City of Torrance (PV adjacent.)

Hi, Tash. My late father-in-law kept a small plane at Torrance's air field in the 1970s. I don't remember the name Zamperini, although I did recently read a review of the book you just finished.

Wires or not, it's a great shot.

If you've never attended Torrance's veterans parade, you've got to go. I did a decade ago with Torrance bud Patrick. Amazing! they even dragged a couple of guys out of rest homes (and put them in wheel chairs) to represent WWI

I love these airshows with vintage airplanes. I've been meaning to read the book so off to the library I'll go!!

Makes me think of the Blue Angels.

Finally found some free time to write a bit.
