A big update this week, I added the “Jack Hunter” tab on the main page that includes reprints of Jack’s Bio and his own backround story of how his life experiences led to writting “The Blue Max’. The story is fascinating and the influences span across two world wars. Bruno Stachel is the aggressive young pilot that was “cleaned up” by the character portrayed in the film by George Peppard. Jack’s Bruno is hugely flawed and resolutely evil and in his blog post “The Blue Max Revisited” he explains where this character came from. It might suprise you. I also included some of Jack’s paintings in a gallery page. I will post more about that in the future. Special thanks to Jill Hunter and Jonni Anderson for reviewing this content and allowing me to include it here.
Other minor changes to the site…I added a links page to provide links to related websites. I also merged the “sorties” pages into the “story” pages. Realized separating the dogfights from the story was a bad idea
