No, I haven't seen Flyboys. Frankly, I can wait for the DVD. (Which is wait of what, four months?) The preview doesn't really thrill me, though Emmett says the film is pretty good. I just can't get to worked up.Besides, thought I, there's this black guy and who is going to believe that a black guy is a fighter pilot in WW1.Oops!Eugene Bullard (9 October1895 – 12 October1961) was the first African Americanmilitarypilot.He flew for the French in WW1. Complete Wikipedia entry here. The black character in Flyboys appears to be derived from Eugene's story; the character is named Eugene Skinner.What a fascinating story. There's a book from 1972, The Black Swallow of Death. I think I'll have to hunt up a copy.Damn, why isn't this man's biography a movie already?
