I thought it fitting to show again the trip to Clewiston in Florida, April this year. We were, that is Tony, Gloria, Sue the wife and I going to New Orleans and Menphis as part of our trip in America but due to bad weather we had to cancel this and stay locally in Florida. After a trip to a local airfield on the Keys we learned about the British Airmen that were trained up by the Americans in the Second world War.
We then went to a small town called Clewiston in the centre of Florida that had an Airfield dedicated to Training our Airmen.
Plaque opposite Museum.
