And He Maybe Thought He Was the First? - NOT!

I was digging about the Air & Space Magazine from the Smithsonian, and wandered across this tidbit. On March 31st, 1984, Robert J. Moriarty, flew under the Eiffel Tower in a Beachcraft Bonanza.
Bad news, Robert: Jim Sr. beat you by about 39 years. The difference is after all the champange from the VJ Day celebration, Jim forgot to take a movie camera along to document it. The pilot's view video of the "fly under" is posted in Robert's article.
