Dogfight Ends in an Unlikely Bond

Amazing story reported by the NewObservers’ Martha Quillin:

ZEBULON, N.C. — Barrie Davis has long wanted to look into the eyes of the pilot who nearly blasted his P-51 Mustang out of the sky over a field in Romania during World War II.

After 65 years, he’ll finally get his chance.

In a rendezvous arranged by a magazine writer and his filmmaker son, Davis and his wartime nemesis, Ion Dobran, will meet face to face for the first time later this month.
