I wonder how many of us were up and on the forum this morning to see this puzzle put forth by Riffclown. It's really odd the things that get stuck in our brains at times. I have no relatives that have been in the AirForce, nor have I been either. For some reason the dates 1947 and 1938, along with the flight reference as well as the word servicemen just rang a bell somewhere back in the recesses of my memory. Then the tune started playing in the back of my brain. If I recall correctly it was the tune itself in 1938 and the words in 1947. At any rate, a really fun puzzle Riffclown and a great kite that is going to find itself in the hands of some youngsters ASAP.
I told Riffclown that I will add straps and lines to this kite when I find it a good home.
