Yer gettin on my nerves...

You do know I'm developing a severe dislike for you for being able to experience all those things I'd LOVE TO DO but never will don't you? Just kidding bud... I'd swear you could fall into a bucket of manure and find a golden ring.

On the side of the 51, we had one fly into Pasco a few weeks ago that has dual controls, supposedly the only 1 in the US, and was selling rides. $2500/half hour & $4000/hr. Sniffing and looking were free! Yikes! The guys came in from a 2 hour flight to get here in full sun in all that glass and were pretty much cooked.

A B-17 got here ahead of them and the Liberator didn't show up until the next day. None-the-less, the damn things are still impressive. Avgas rocks when it's hooked up to those old timey engines. Technology is sweet but that noise from those old timers absolutely kicks butt in my ears.

Ya got the biggest flying foamy we've seen built yet?

Dan
