In the early days of aviation radar was not yet invented. In the background is a towering cumulo nimbus or thunderstorm which is something you don't tangle with. In this scene entitled Nick of Time the Pan Am Clipper takes off before the storm hits. This Clipper is NC-18608 ordered by Pan Am and delivered in April 1941. It was sold to the British Purchasing Commission and used by BOAC. After the War it was sold to World Airways - 1948. The song is of that place and era Hapa-Haole Hula Girl.

The Greatest Singer of All Time...

...Great Britain's Sarah Brightman

When I decided to dedicate this web site to The Greatest Generation I thought I would mostly play 1940's music from the time they were young. Also, the salute I gave to the pretty lady with the magical voice wasn't yet born, nor were many of us.  I still paint to her music and thought which musician could inspire more than Sarah Brightman and her orchestra? She has so many songs I could still pick them to go with the 1940's scenes. This web site gives credit where its due. Why not tell the truth and at the same time give credit to the generation that so well deserves it?
