Subject: RE: Aviador Carranza - Corrido from 1900's
Thanks, Joe. Now all we need is a site with MIDI files of the melody!!(You can't keep me happy for more than a minute--I know)

I have been doing some promotional writing for an organization that will be having a convention in Philly (NO!!Not the Republicans!!) So everything and anything from the area rings a bell for me, and this has got me thinking about Carranza and aviation.

Interesting that so many aviation events, good and bad happened over New Jersey--Lindburgh, The Hindenburg Disaster, the Carranza crash, and even the first manned flight, in 1793, by Jean-Pierre Blanchard, which went from Philadelphia to Woodley, NJ, not really very far from where Carranza crashed.
