Yup, I can handle my turn on stage.

The first is July in Muncie and I did not want to embaress any of the other guys so I opted out of the muscle shirt.

The second picture is me in winter fur and cool weather clothing. Longjohns under the sweats and three layers on top makes for comfortable flying in November.

My beard has looked like that for the last ten years and only shows up in the winter.
I attribute it to work! Managing forty 18 to 73 year old childern will do it to you.

So is this hall of fame for the plane or the pilot? I see you mentioned my dad, George Joy. He loved those planes, he loved building, flying them, and even teaching folks how to fly. I'm remember having to hold the plane for pictures so he could show off just how large a wingspan these planes had. Amazing.

No insult intended, my mountaintop is full of snow itself I was referring more to the plane, which in the second picture looks like it has spent most of it's life in a museum, it's so clean looking. Very beautiful covering job, BTW.

I would have to vote for the BA-100 Baby Bowlus that Col. Thacker made plans for back in the 70's.
