Among's vast archive of footage tracking yesteryear and beyond, Cockpit USA came across a video which warmed our hearts and left us brimming with pride in our American heritage. In the following short movie, Fred Linden talks of discovering two reels of film left behind his father, a PBY naval aviator during World War II in which he appears setting out on missions and adventures during his time in service in the South Pacific. This is truly a visual gem that will embed itself in your memory.
