I am sorry for your loss.

It appears that many honored him and respected him.

Tough days. Are you an orphan now, or is mom still alive?

Will watch the video later, but skimming through it - very interesting. Great memory and lots of great photos and video. A great tribute!

At 36 minutes where your dad is talking about the PBY crashing during take-off and the associated video - it must have been the actual video where he is talking about the account! (Not just canned video from somewhere). That is great!!

They made it a special day.

As they did for my PBY Dad three years ago. He trained PBY pilots in Jacksonville, FL before the war, then proceeded to the SW Pacific in the Solomans. His VP-11 flight logbook is on the web.

Imagine Clarence Coon's PBY flying a professional photographer over another rescuing PBY which was rescuing a ditched B-24's crew in the Pacific. Shortly afterwards, then filming the crash of the rescuing PBY—having to rescue two crews, and heavily loaded—taking off in the same rough seas that claimed the first PBY.

Open-seas rescue is a serious business. ​≡≡8-O​

May the pride you feel for your hero dad, fill some of the emptiness in your heart at his passing.

God Bless his immortal soul and peace for you and your family.

All the best
Daffy

RIP soldier...they don’t make them like that anymore. PBY’s were a real handful and they took steady hands and minds. Must have been a great man. Condolences and blessings for lovingly raising you as his own.
