The Motion Sick: Joe Consolmagno, POW and Theater Enthusiast

This is a pretty crazy article about this guy who was shot down during WWII and his experience putting on theater productions in a POW camp.

“Four miles above the earth, Joe dived out head first. The jolt of his parachute ripped off one of his boots. As he slowly descended, a German fighter plane wandered by. “I braced to feel the shock of gunfire,” Joe later wrote in an article. “But the enemy didn’t fire. He circled me so closely that I could see his oxygen-masked face, and he waved. I waved back. It didn’t seem appropriate to be impolite.””
