10 Myths: Like

Flight Journal - - EDITORIAL - Cmdr. Skip Vaughn, USN, Re­tired

Edi­tor’s note: As pre­dicted, Bar­rett Till­man’s “Ten Avi­a­tion Myths of WW II” (Fe­bru­ary 2018) gen­er­ated a num­ber of “likes” and “don’t likes.” All myths have their sup­port­ers and their de­trac­tors, and we’ve pre­sented views from both sides be­low.

Bar­rett, your ar­ti­cle in the lat­est Flight Jour­nal on the myths of World War II was out­stand­ing. I par­tic­u­larly liked your in­tro about the Marines’ top ace be­ing Joe Foss and put­ting Pappy Boy­ing­ton in his proper place on the USMC ace list. Hope­fully, some read­ers will pick up a copy of your book on WW II USMC squadrons to read your length­ier writ­ing on the topic. Bravo Zulu! Thanks for your ser­vice and your com­ments, Skip.—BD
