Their Flying Machines - Wordless Wednesday

(Digital Images. Postcards Privately Held By Cynthia Shenette; Text Copyright (c) 2013 Cynthia Shenette) My grandfather, Adolf Szerejko, served as an airplane mechanic in France during World War I.  These are a few of the postcards from his collection.  I can't help but be reminded of the movie, Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines.  The theme song for the movie is the ultimate earworm.  Listen if you dare, but don't blame me if you spend the rest of the day singing that song.
