Brig. General Robin Olds was an American fighter pilot and general officer in the  U.S. Air Force. He was a "Triple Ace", with a combined total of 16 victories in  World War II and the Vietnam War. The son of Army Air Forces Major General  Robert Olds, educated at West Point, and the product of an upbringing in the early  years of the U.S. Army Air Corps, Olds epitomized the youthful World War II fighter  pilot. He remained in the service as it became the United States Air Force, despite often being at odds with its leadership, and was one of its pioneer jet pilots.  Rising to the command of two fighter wings, Olds is regarded among aviation  historians, and his peers, as the best wing commander of the Vietnam War, for both his air-fighting skills, and his reputation as a combat leader.  Robin Olds’ daughter, Christina, who co-authored his biography “Fighter Pilot:  The Memoirs of Legendary Ace Robin Olds”, also co-wrote and narrated this  biopic, “Robin Olds: All American”. In it, she shares her personal insights and  memories of life with one of the most legendary and respected figures in the  history of the United States Air Force. Much of the video is in General Olds’ own  words, gleaned from some of his last recorded extended narratives.  The video was produced by The Fagen Fighters World War II Museum of Granite  Falls, Minnesota, in conjunction with Sleeping Dog Productions. Featured  prominently in the video is “Scat III”,  one of the few remaining Lockheed P-38  Lightenings left in the world, which has been meticulously restored to flying  condition by The Museum.  It is painted in the exact same scheme as the P-38 in  which Robin Olds scored 5 of his aerial victories in the European Theater of  World War II.
