We now take a break from our regularly scheduled programming. I recently visited the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum. The B-26 known as Flak-Bait is currently being restored there. Flak-Bait is a Martin B-26 Marauder aircraft that holds the record within the United States Army Air Forces for the number of bombing missions survived during World War II. Each one of the red marks on it represents one bombing mission. Manufactured in Baltimore, Maryland as a B-26B-25-MA, by Martin, it was completed in April, 1943 and christened Flak-Bait by its first assigned pilot, James J. Farrell, who adapted the nickname of a family dog, "Flea Bait". Flak-Bait was assigned to the 449th Bombardment Squadron, 322d Bombardment Group stationed in eastern England. During the course of its 202 (207 if one includes its five decoy missions) bombing missions over Germany as well as the Netherlands, Belgium, and France, Flak-Bait lived up to its name by being shot with over 1,000 holes, returned twice on one engine and once with an engine on fire, lost its electrical system once and its hydraulic system twice, and participated in bombing missions in support of the Normandy Landings and the Battle of the Bulge.
You asked me what kind of machines I use to better my body for shooting.
One of them is this one: Leg press helps build stabilizing muscles for shooting. I go on my toes too and work calf muscle & stretch Achilles' tendon (I make sure not to lock my knees!) .
I do it until it burns....Mainly because it takes my mind off the pain of constantly losing my wireless earbuds. 😫🎶😁🤦♂️ #leSigh
