Pretty cool event. Would love to see that.

I always thought they could make some serious bucks putting some barges out in the Gulf of Mexico and letting you bomb them with some sort of paint bombs. People pay to ride...imagine how much they would pay to bomb! Couple of hours of ground school learning about bombing and so forth. Up you go and give it a shot.

Hadn't thought of torpedoes! Wonder how many torpedo bombers are out there flying right now.

Was thinking any of the 17s and 25s still flying would be great to bomb from.

Had often thought how cool it would be to win a massive lottery and buy a TBF Avenger and torpedo derelict ships just for s!@#$ and giggles of course would be very difficult to learn since very few of qualified torpedo bomber pilots left alive to teach me!!!! pretty soon wont have anything but pictures and written documents to tell us what the war was like!!! Korean and Vietnam vets arent far behind soon will be very few of them most Vietnam vets are in their mid 60s now!!!

Looked like a ton of kids there. No way they dropped enough eggs. Probably started a kid riot.....

I'll always think of this video when I hear the phrase "carpet bombing".
