Last week, on my trip though North Dakota, I stopped to get a picture of one of the three intercept aircraft that flew into history during the events of 9/11/01.

I was perplexed by the plaque which made no mention of Major Dean Eckmann’s historic flight.

Coincidentally, as I was about to leave, this fellow showed up driving a limousine sporting a small American flag fluttering on each side of the vehicle.


Field McConnell, a former pilot of the prestigious Happy Hooligan’s, asked me to take a picture of him beside an F4 phantom he used to fly including a jet painted yellow in the background for a visual metaphor about a statement he made towards Janet Reno.
