Today's clue. Thanks; Ernie P.


What warbird pilot do I describe?



1. This pilot is well known.



2. Perhaps less well known today than in years past.



3. He was an innovator.



4. And an inventor.



5. And he helped develop new tactics.



6. He was known for passing what he knew along to fledgling pilots under his command.



7. He had much to do with the development of fighter aircraft.



8. And he was constantly working on making the aircraft under his control better able to perform their missions.



9. Many of the innovations he developed were widely adopted.



10. And over the years, most people have forgotten the man who pioneered them.



11. He came from a family with a long tradition of military service.



12. At an early age, he proved to be an able inventor and innovator.



13. He had a keen interest in mechanical and engineering developments.
