Lost Things

One of the things my "uncle" Bill loved to do was video editing.

This was back in the days of VHS and camcorders which were the size of an anti-tank missile launcher.

He recorded some flight deck stuff of F-14's launching and set it to "Money For Nothing" by Dire Straits.

The actual launch stroke hits at 01:50 with the guitar kicking in just as the controls swipe started.

It was epic.

It should have been part of a Fighter Fling.

His live-in girl tossed everything when he ended up dead.

Gone forever.
