  1. If this is the Burl Burlingame who reviewed the “egg” P-40 on Hyperscale…good article.

    I disagree though as I thought the egg-40 is much cooler.

    Best regards,

    Burl – Pls forward your email address; I have an author friend looking for a WWII in the Pacific historian and would like to refer him to you.

    Dear Mr. Burlingame,
    I’m the photo researcher for the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and we’d like to use one of the photos you took while you were here at the Aquarium:

    Do you happen to know the child in the foreground? Please feel free to e-mail me. Thanks. -Kris Ingram

    Alas, no, this was a grab shot and the kid moved on quickly!

  5. I thought you might like to see this latest film collaboration. This specific raw film footage came from an old classmate, Marshall Brown of Kailua. These rare shots were taken by his father back in the late fifties. I wonder how many of your readers remember the old Kahuku Road Races… maybe the drag racing on the old airstrip? Enjoy!

    Hi, Burl. I’m trying to track down a copy of a comic book that I think you may have contributed to back in 1972 by the name of Kui Ka Lono Comix. Does that ring any bells? Have any copies survived, by any chance?
