Episode Description:

Torpedo bomber pilot Robert Roy III invited's cast and crew of The Robert Kopper Show into his School Street home Saturday morning, May 11, 2013 for taping of episode 3 of the 4-part World War Two series.The resultant 33 minute video is a hit with history buffs, and just plain interesting for anyone who likes old photos. Shown at the beginning is Roy's original combat authorization paper asking "pilot ready for combat?" To signify the affirmative, there's a little "x" typed in the box to the right of the "Yes." Next is a photograph of the entire squadron and a list of their names.
Roy flew 390 hours practicing take-offs and landings prior to getting his flight "approval." See the original 28 May 1944-stamped paper generated at Glenview Naval Air Station in Illinois. It says "Qualified this date in carrier landings aboard the USS SABLE in . . . .S N J . . .airplane." Another mark just below the entry is "Approved."At the 20 min, 57 second point is an interesting photograph Roy's on-board gun camera took of another plane while both were taxiing in San Diego. This video gives a firsthand account of WW II pilots' day to day life, and more often death. At 24:31 is a "kind of sad letter," Roy says. "I had a pal at Mount Herman School named John Roberts." Roy continues to read a letter he wrote 69 years ago.
