My wife added another bookshelf to the house and decided that rather than filling it with books we'd move some books around from other shelves and open up some space for a little decor. I have just the thing, I told her. There is no reason for my vintage model airplane engines to be packed away when they can be on display for all who visit our home to admire. While she didn't buy that last bit about visitors admiring them she did give me the go-ahead to add a few engines to the shelf. So last night I took a bit of music wire and started bending stands for my Atwood Wasp and OK Cub. They are both mounted on firewalls so it wasn't hard to make a stand. My Royal Spitfire is beam mounted so I'll needed to fashion something a little different for that one.

Twenty-five minutes of frosty, early morning flying with the Super Cub and Randolph Observer on November fourth; one month closer to the All Season Flyer patch and 25 minutes closer to this year's goal of ten hours in the air.

Later we tested the new rocket launch controller and the egg carrying rocket. I'm proud to say the egg-stronought returned safely.
