WHERE HAVE THEY GONE?
“Valor in the Pacific”, 20th Air Force B29s/P51s
Robert Taylor Print, “Reach for the Sky” SeriesIt’s been a while since yesterday
And all the B-29’s have flown away.
No more do they fly through the sky
At an elevation of thirty-thousand feet high!
Many pilots, too, have gone;
And very few remain
To dream of yesterday
And the mighty Superfort plane.
World War Two has run its course
And young men have grown old;
Better seek them out before
Their stories cannot be told.
They are dying at the rate
Of two-thousand a day.
Hear what they say today
About the B-29’s of yesterday!
