That pilot also had a 2 part show on PBS several years ago. Quentin Aanenson is his name. If I remember correctly the documentary was called A Fighter Pilot's Story. Excellent. It is available on DVD. Here is his web site -

Quentin C Aanenson did the excellent
PBS film "A Fighter Pilot's Story".
While Mr. Aaneson speaks in a rather dull
monotone I found the film rivteting and
a real eye opener.
He told it like it was, no BS, no embelleshment.

This is a story that must be told before they are all gone.

My entire family, except the women, went to war.
They are all deceased.

Few remain today.
