Dave Leicester - Ground crews

Running time

Date made
Department of Veterans' Affairs


Not enough credit has been given to ground crews. They were fantastic. They worked in the cold and the snow because we had to send out as many planes as we could. Usually, a plane would have its own ground crew, and if there was no flying that night we'd go into the local pub, so would they, and we'd all mix, and rank didn't matter. You were just all there together.
