pretty kewl happenings last night

Recommended Posts

Showed up at the airport for my flight, conditions were at minimums so my CFI left the choice to me if we should go. Since I like having more than 500 feet to react to anything that might pop out of the clouds decided to stay on the ground, depressing at first but then a light at the end of the tunnel :)There's an airshow at the airport this weekend and the Red Baron Squadron is one of the acts performing there. They have their 4 Stearmans tucked away in one of the FBO's hangars...while we were out there dreuling over the planes one of the pilots showed up, wound up giving us a VIP tour of the planes and maintenance trailer they take with them...even got to sit in the cockpit... :-kewl too Kewl! :-kewl, times like these I wish I'd flown the Stearman in Fly2 some more, coulda been fired up and airborne in no time! :-hahThe maint. trailer was pretty impressive too, they keep a spare engine and prop in it along with eveything they need to change them, strange how that big ole hulkin' radial doesn't look that big when it's on the plane.:-beerchug c ya :-waveBart flyhelp@zoomtown.com
