    I just found this website. My Dad would have been very excited and impressed with the WorldWideWeb had he lived to see/experience it. My Dad, William C. Simonsen Sr. was a glider pilot and I saw seven of his Battle Stars. I wish I would have been able to know him better. He built several functioning scale models of one of the aircraft that he flew. Many stories but I was much to young/inexperienced to understand. Thank you for your service “Silent Wings”
