Kissing Sailor Valentine's Day Homecoming The Kiss - Unconditional Surrender
- rachel8, CNN iReport producer
B-roll, nat. sound and a few sound bites from Scott McGaugh, USS Midway Museum.
Rode the 5:40 AM Ferry to San Diego from Coronado and walked to the USS Midway...then waited for the arrival of the transport truck carrying the famous "Kiss" sculpture - based on the famous black and white "Unconditional Surrender" photograph.
All the local TV stations were there - most going live. The huge truck lumbered in at just after 7 AM. Scott, from Midway Museum allowed me to also film from the flight deck for a bird's eye view of the Swingin', Kissin' Couple and the "placing and marking" of the sculpture foot anchor bolts.
The community dedication of the famous sailor kissing a nurse sculpture near Midway (next to the Fish Market Restaurant) will take place on Saturday, February 16, at 10 a.m. and everyone is invited!
