Gray Eagles, a film by Chris Woods

Here’s another one for the aviation enthusiasts, perhaps readers who may have read Tom Brokaw’s ‘The Greatest Generation’ or anyone who has a relative, friend or otherwise might be interested in taking a glimpse into an aspect of history that is not often captured regarding the silent hero’s who have served their country in time of war.

Filmmaker and P-51 Mustang Pilot Chris Woods created and released a wonderful film back in Sept ’09 that captures the emotional reunion between a humble WWII Mustang ace (Jim Brooks) and the historic plane he thought he’d never see again.  It just came to my attention so I though I’d share it…

Details: Filmmaker and P-51 Mustang Pilot Chris Woods has put together a wonderful film that captures the emotional reunion between a humble WWII Mustang ace (Jim Brooks) and the historic plane he thought he’d never see again.

Inspired by the flood of memories triggered by this unimaginable encounter with a long lost friend, the 88-year old pilot finally breaks his silence, sharing his stories and experiences of war with the grandchildren who never thought they’d hear them.

Wood’s interviews with Brooks, his grandchildren, and other airmen who were touched by the Mustang’s role in history are cut together to create a compelling narrative that is framed in stunning high-definition photography.

ASB.TV loves beautifully done aviation storytelling films. Fellow Mustang pilot and director Chris Woods has put together one of the very best!

About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?

    Thanks for bringing the Gray Eagles to my attention.
