Nothing Much Happened Today.

Best I can figure is it happened on or before 6 February 2013 and the photos are from NBC7 San Diego.

Run, Don’t Walk, The Ventures (?),  year unknown. That song title is not a typo, and I can’t find any info on the origin of the recording. One source claims it was unreleased, but that seems unlikely; it’s possibly the work of a tribute band. The Ventures had a huge hit with Walk, Don’t Run in 1960, but you knew that.

The Demise of a Fokker D.VII

GERMAN PLANE FALLS.  Fokker D-7 A German fighting airplane which “nose-dived” to destruction near a zeppelin shed at Namur.

From History of The Fokker D.VII

The Fokker D.VII is the only aircraft mentioned by name in the Armistice demands of November, 1918. Germany was ordered to surrender “1,700 airplanes (fighters, bombers – firstly, all of the D 7’S and all the night bombing machines)” (number of aircraft to surrender are not always the same).

In the end, not all D.VII’s were handed over. Some were flown back to Germany by their pilots and hidden in sheds. From the ones that were flown to the collection points of the Inter-Allied Control Commission, some were wrecked during landings or taxiing. After the war, some were sold abroad. Anthony Fokker flew from Germany and smuggled six trains with sixty wagons each full of aeroplanes and tools to Holland. Among these were 120 D.VII’s.
