Chuck Tighe Interview

We interviewed Chuck Tighe, another P-51 Fighter Pilot, at his home. This is our first interview since we came back from Portland.

Chuck, his wife and his family were very nice and very helpful with our videotaping. He explained a lot of thing about the war that I did not know, especially things about flying the P-51.

The P-51 is considered by many historians to be the best fighter aircraft in World War II.

WW II Veterans That We Interviewed in Portland

A few weeks ago, we attended the 354th Fighter Group Reunion in Portland. We met and interviewed several men who served in the 353rd, 355th and 356th Fighter Squadrons of the 354th Fighter Group.

Thanks to the many people who were very kind in helping us out at the reunion. It was a once-in-a-lifetime event we will never forget.

Our documentary will incorporate Perkins' diary and new interviews with Col. A. W. Owen, Hugh A. Gibson, Lindy Genung, Nathan Glick, Dr. Clayton Kelly Gross, Ed Regis, Bruno Peters, James Hughes, Lowell K. Brueland, Ken Dahlberg, Bill Davis, Robert J. Ramer, Chuck Tighe and many others.

Our crew had a great time meeting these men who served during World War 2.
