Given up in dispair trying to get some decent weather to wring out my Tazor. Not flown since the maiden and that's not through want of trying!

Just checked the cost of a direct British Airways flight to PHX and its less than $600, that's still pretty cheap!

In fact it works out cheaper than my recent budget airlines trip to Austria, and I get dinner and a movie and the Tazor gets shipped for free as its packs down to hold luggage size way less than the 23Kg per bag limit.

Very tempted!

You should come out Steve, $600 bucks to PHX from the other side of the pond, not to bad,,, If I was you I would say "Screw this weather, I'm off to the States to Fly"

Well said, credit card just got a battering!

Any chance that someone can get me and a big box from the Airport Thursday evening about 5:30 and get me to Apache junction? Will pay for gas and buy beer, would like to avoid a hire car if I can? But if I have to I will.

I get a bit windy flying big jets, but not in that way!

Thanks Gene, I will try Mike Warren as well, I know he is coming and we may be at the same hotel, we were when we came to the Festival in January. He is somewhere over the pond in a continential cockpit just now, perhaps I will catch up with him later in the week?

I was thinking that I should stay near the resturants where I was last time, that way it's a stones throw thru the parking lot to the hotel from TGIF's.

Yes Tam, look forward to seeing you again!

We should talk a little more over a green bottle or two! Is that a twin turbine F22?
