    Search for the last WASP

    This isn't gun related, but since there are many here who enjoy military history, I though you might like to see the linked article. It's about a search effort that went on last week in the Santa Monica bay for the last missing WASP (Women's Airforce Service Pilot). My wife Heather and I were proud to be part of it.

    Very interesting story. I assume you will keep up with the news and let us know if anything is found?

    Absolutely.

    The aircraft experts involved are still working with the parts we found to determine exactly what kind of aircraft they came from. We know it was a military craft and that the parts were used on the P-51. But they could also be from a BT-13 or from a Huey UH-1. Both of these aircraft are also known to be lost in the bay as well. Time will tell I guess.
