Flying Over Rice Paddies

Flying over rice paddies near Sendai

Flooded fields of rice near Sendai. That's the Hirose River down there. The Beaver airplane was tossed around the sky and eventually made me sick and I had to vomit. I used the manila envelope that contained my records to vomit in. We tossed it out over these fields. I often wondered what the Japanese farmer might think when he found the envelope in his rice paddy.
