Today we had a visit from Chip Hailey. the son of 1st Lt David R Hailey who was part of the 338th FS, 55th FG who flew P-38’s and then converted to the P-51. Lt David R Hailey flew as wingman to Capt Frank Birtciel, who flew the original Miss Velma. Chip had some fantastic stories and memories. He is holding his fathers flying helmet while standing in front of our Miss Velma. (Chip still visits Velma!).
