There was an odd event when I lived in Los Angeles. I've said before that I lived near two movie studios, Universal and Warner Brothers. My apartment complex, which was huge, was on the hillside behind the studios so I was used to looking out my window across the valley and seeing a lot of unusual things. Some really weird things. This event was unusual, but wonderful.
I was at my desk working when I heard planes coming. Numerous planes. Very close and not coming from the Burbank Airport. My roommate and I came running from our respective rooms to the living room to see this wondrous site. There in front of us, flying by in formation, were several WWII aircraft, very low, flying from east to west. I've never found out why they flew by. I don't know if they were being filmed for some show or just an amazing group of planes out for a jaunt. I just remember the thrill of hearing the engines and seeing the warbirds appear and then disappear across the sky, across the valley. This is what I think of when I see this card.
As to this specific plane:
The Lockheed Hudson was an American-built light bomber and coastal reconnaissance aircraft built initially for the Royal Air Force shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War and primarily operated by the RAF thereafter. The Hudson was the first significant aircraft construction contract for the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation—the initial RAF order for 200 Hudsons far surpassed any previous order the company had received. The Hudson served throughout the war, mainly with Coastal Command but also in transport and training roles as well as delivering agents into occupied France. They were also used extensively with the Royal Canadian Air Force's anti-submarine squadrons. (SOURCE: Wikipedia)More planes next time.
