Robert,

It was a very painful moment indeed. But already fixed and ready to...

....be dispatched to Brazil, 5 big boxes with planes and all the equipment gathered in 5 years in US, next flight will be in the Sao Paulo skies, hope the ground in Brazil will be more friendly to this plane.

The worst part is that the container ship will arrive in Brazil only in two or three months maybe the have a sail boat lol

I will try to make room in my baggage and take at least the cox warbirds with me.

Hi Nelson,

I was just thinking that there is a bright side to it all. You'll be skipping winter by moving to the other side of the equator. I hope things work out for the best in Sao Paulo.

Keep in touch!

Hi Nelson,

I will not be going to the world cup in Brazil. I'm still trying to buy that house I was telling you about. After several delays, The selling process has finally started. Will be hearing the outcome at the end of the month. Though it will take another year for it to be build, I'll need to start saving money for a kitchen and so on. Hungary was good. I went home with a nice tan from a day at lake balaton. Weather has been so bad this summer that I didn't manage to do that at home. We even have had the first fall storm already. I've not been up to much in the field of the hobby. I did buy the 35mm mig-15 and the f86 sabre lately but it hardly has been out of the box since it arrived. That, eventhough I've been at home with the flu for several days now. I'll be looking forward to your posts about the flying in Sao Paulo. Are you still in the USA or are you already in Brazil?

Say hi to Adriana!

Robert
