Country legend hit by glaucoma

DEBILITATED country queen Loretta Lynn is facing a daunting new health crisis — she’s going blind!

The 87-year-old legend was diagnosed with eyesight-robbing glaucoma in 2009 that’s damaged her optic nerve, sources tell GLOBE.

“Loretta gets regular injections to ease fluid buildup on the eyeball, but there’s no repairing the nerve damage. She’s been losing her eyesight bit by bit for years,” reveals a friend.

P-47 - This WW II warbird will make you an ace!

The P-47 Thunderbolt is one of the most iconic pursuit planes of WW II. Nicknamed “the Jug,” the Thunderbolt broke the mold when it first saw service. Crew members were astonished at the sheer size of the aircraft as it was much larger than other aircraft at the time. The P-47 swiftly became revered by both its pilots and the crew members that maintained it. It was an absolute hunting machine with eight .50 caliber machine guns and a maximum range of about 1,000 miles. It has been said that the P-47 is one of the best “heavy metal” warbirds to fly! Legend Hobby with Seagull Models offers the P-47 in several sizes, but this new 81-inch-span giant-scale version comes with a ton of scale features. I have always loved the P-47 and have wanted one in my RC hangar.
