The Real Flyboys of WWI

A Vintage Nerd
Yesterday I spotlighted the WWI themed film called Flyboys based on the true story of the Lafayette Escadrille. I wanted to share with you some incredible photos of the real life Flyboys that the film was based on. There are not a lot of photos around but I found these and I love them. They really give you a sense of the men who sacrificed their time and lives to fighting for freedom as fighter pilots during WWI.

  1. Although it's probably not too historically accurate, I LOVE the "Flyboys" movie!

  2. I can't believe I haven't seen this movie. I must watch this very soon. Great pictures, I love seeing the old planes, and those uniforms are too cool.
