If you could go back in time and do anything any where what would you do and in what time period.

For me its a toss up between going back to WWII and being a P40 fighter pilot or mustang pilot. That or go back to the old west days where everyone carried a gun and rode a horse everywhere.

P40 was a lousy fighter, no match for the Zero. Mustang on the other hand was probably the best propeller fighter ever.

I live in the west and carry a gun everywhere as do most of the guys (and some of the ladies) I know. No horses though.

Ahhhh, for the good ol' days of outhouses and no indoor plumbing. No computers, no video games, might as well say no electronics, at least as we know them.

History paints such a romantic image of those eras, but I believe very few youngsters, remember I'm almost 70, would really want to live in those days.

It's like folks who go to Disneyworld and think it would be great to work there. It's a totally different perspective from the outside looking in. When you get there, it is most likely to disappoint. It's the "Happiest Place on Earth", or was that Disneyland, for the guests. Not so happy for the "cast members".

I would be a horseman in Genghis Khan's army. That would be so awesome.

Really? The Warhawks and the Airacobras pretty much held the fort in the Pacific theater until the newer Lightnings and Mustangs and Thunderbolts got there. Yeah, the high-alt performance of the P-39 and P-40 was lamentable, the British found that out soon enough when they tried it against the Luftwaffe. But in the Pacific theater, most of the air battles were below 5000 feet. When flown to its strengths- high diving speed, high firepower, high level speed- the P-40 was a handful for the Zeros and Oscars. One must remember that the Japanese pilots at the beginning of the war were superbly trained as well. Completely different design philosophies behind the two planes (P40 and the A6M Zero).

Don't forget that the Flying Tigers flew P-40s. The P40s did pretty well in the desert with the RAF and the RAAF, and in the Russian theater.

If anyone's interested in the Pacific theater air war, I suggest you read these two books.

#1. Zero: Masatake Okumiya (sp?), Jiro Horikoshi (sp?), Martin Caidin

#2. Samurai: Saburo Sakai, MArtin Caidin.

Hit me up with a PM for further discussions.

I'd like to go back to Friday, November 22, 1963 @ 12:25 local time, specifically to Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas and put a bullet in the brain of Lee Harvey Oswald.

As am I. No reason to go back in time for me. It would change my life now and I'm fine with the way it has turned out.

I'd go back to 10000 B.C. and find me a hot looking cavewoman. Woman back then didn't talk back and you were allowed to club'em over the head.
