Not sure how a forum being gone necessarily implies the project is gone but that is expected speculation. What is fact, is we were overly optimistic regarding the level of committed support we would need and receive, but anyway thanks kindly for your well wishes.
The WTR forum on Combat Ace is long gone. I (and many others following this project) have surmised that this project is no more. I could tell from the pace of development that the chance of this project ever being completed was slim. But I am still sad to see that progress has come to a complete stop. Best wishes to everyone that put time and effort into this celebration of Ed Rasimus and F-105 history.
"There Is A Way" %26 "When Thunder Rolled" %26 Ed Rasimus
At Lackland AFB in 1969 in OTS I saw the film "There Is A Way". That is the first time I saw Ed Rasimus. He was interviewed at 100 missions over Noth Vietnam in the F 105. I was in maintenance and never saw combat. I never met ed. But I always remembered him.....Now almost 45 years later I stumbled on "There Is A Way " on youtube. And there was Ed again. It made the hair on my neck stand up.....And so Now I am reading "When Thunder Rolled". ....I'll say this....Ed is not only a Hero but an Honest hero....He is the one many of us who didn't see combat would hope to be ....if we ever had to face such terrible cost...God speed Ed Rasimus....You are the "believable" hero to many you never met.
