NEW! Photos of the author in the beautiful P-51D Mustang "Glamorous Gal", owned by pilot Robert C. Baranaskas of Centerport, NY. Pictures were taken at the Republic Aviation museum in Farmingdale, Long Island. This actual aircraft was in the 335th Fighter Squadron "Chiefs" of the legendary 4th Fighter Group during World War II and is painted in the livery of that squadron (although the restorers mistakenly painted the nose red and white checkerboard instead of solid Red.)

The purpose of this museum visit was for the author to meet William "Billy" Tucci, the Writer, Director, and Producer of the following films:
  1. Shi (2003) ... aka Shi: The Way of the Warrior (2003) (USA)
  2. Some Trouble of a SeRRious Nature (2002)
