Ahh, that's the sunburst-helmeted cranium of Flight Left-tinnant Behind, lost during last night's combat session. His dH 108 Swallow made a safe landing with the canopy flipped up 90 degrees- an excellent speed-brake. Keep him in case you need a scale pilot- I'll make another. Conditions at sunset made it almost too beautiful to watch your plane. What a fine evening.

Mmmmm .... Reminds me of one of my personal philosophies of life:

I'd much rather run around like a headless chicken than lay around like a chickenless head.

I don't know about you all but the thread title disturbed me. Even with the word "toy" in it

Tom,

You got me thinking again about the time I was investigating this guy and he told me someone gave him a "sign" they wanted him dead. Where's the proof I asked. A few days later he brought me the proof....a guys skull with two bullet holes in it and flesh eating bugs to boot. Had a tough time explaining to the wife why homocide was at the house that evening asking me a million questions....

No toy unfortunately... The head ended up belonging to a 30-40 yr old guy that was missing for about 6 months...they had found the body, just not the head.

TOY HEAD owner found

I thought about the tile of this tread, but I did not want to get to crazy since it is to far away from Hollween.

Fly safe, stay safe!

This is getting dark. I know the thought of decapitation gives one the gollywobbles, but still,... Vic, how do you, you know, sleep? To lighten up I submit Mike the Headless Chicken who continued on for some time, even taking some SHORT FLIGHTS i believe. You can look it up,...
