Caleb Flerk - Some Trouble of a SeRRious Nature

Caleb Flerk, born and raised in the little town of Hockeyjock, Arkansas, grew up a curious, adventuresome boy; naive to the ways of the world, but undaunted by almost any challenge he faced. He was a constant tinkerer who could fix just about anything and always believed, "the right tool for the job was the one that worked."

Caleb's formal education fell by the wayside as he approached his teen years, but he learned enough to enjoy the funny papers, comic books, and the occasional movie that came to town. He had a particular fondness for action films and dreamed of one day having what he called "a great adventure."

In the fall of 1945, the day the war in the Pacific came to an end, Caleb got his chance when a Navy pilot landed a brand new F4U-4F Corsair near town and abandoned the airplane to celebrate peace.

It wasn't long before Caleb Flerk and this ill-fated Corsair got into "... Some Trouble of a SeRRious Nature ...".
