January: Well, 2004 just zipped by. There were quite a few ups and downs in my personal and professional lives. Lots of opportunities for growth! The JGM/High Flight biography/documentary project had to go on the back burner for awhile, but I am still intent on completing it!
For those of you waiting for the T-38 version of the USAF High Flight Television Sign-Off, your wait is nearly over. I will hopefully have it in hand within by April.
I have acquired a video of William Conrad reciting the poem. I understand that this film was shown in some areas as a sign-off film.
I have gotten a PAL version of the movie, “High Flight” starring Ray Milland. Need to get it converted to NTSC before I can watch it — don’t know if it has any references at all to the poem.
April: Amazing, but true: the long wait is over! I have obtained the T-38 version of the USAF High Flight Television Sign-Off and am in the process of adding it to the HF Compilation DVD Volume II. In addition to the T-38 piece, Volume II will contain the William Conrad version of the Sign-Off film and John Denver singing his “Flight (The Higher We Fly)” song on the Bob Hope Show.
Stay tuned… I will be sending out a mailing to all those who have ordered the HF Compilation DVD as well as those who have requested to be notified when the T-38 version was available.
