I had that photo - it's awesome. Here's the info I had on it: F6F Hellcat crashes on USS Enterprise Crash landing of an F6F Hellcat into the port side 20mm gun gallery of the USS Enterprise, November 10, 1943. Lieutenant Walter L. Chewning, Jr., USNR, the Catapult Officer, is climbing up the plane's side to assist the pilot from the burning aircraft. The pilot, Ensign Byron M. Johnson, escaped without significant injury. Note the plane's ruptured belly fuel tank.

That was one brave S.O.B. going into the inferno to help the pilot, wonder if they made it?

Looks like Dyson got his "New Ball Technology" from the wheel that this courageous comrad is standing on in this WWII photo.

Doing the right thing. It's what being alive is all about. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. "A man might be afraid his home will get bombed, or he's afraid that he will lose his job, or he's afraid that he will get shot, or beat down by state troopers, and he may go on and live until he's 80. He's just as dead at 36 as he would be at 80. The cessation of breathing in his life is merely the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit. He died... A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right. A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice. A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true." And, in my opinion, a man (or a woman) dies when they don't do the right thing out of fear. They may never get another chance to do so. Kudos to this brave comrade!!
