    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    On my birthday this year I got to fly in a two seater. A 1946 LUSCOMBE Model 8A Fixed Wing Single-Engine

    Loved it!

    Just got this fun hi speed clip of assembly line of Florida 1, a SW Airlines tribute painted Boeing liner. Talk about some intensive mask & tape paint layouts!

    Bt-13

    Because of an opportunity that I had last April I wrote a little article regarding it and why that opportunity was important. A Warbirds historical organization was interested in it and decided to publish it and a 'rough' little video that I did of the event on their site. Thought some folks might be interested in the tale and the site itself.

    It's painted "EXPERAMENTAL" on the side... classic.

    Amazing what they can do with a Piper Cub.

    After I got to the Hanger floor to see the MiG-17 Irealized just on the other side of the -17 was a MiG-21. Both were fully operational and quite clean. As a former USAF Crew Chief I figured I would never get that close to either aircraft. It was an interesting day!!!

    Came across this monument on a back road while riding today. The field looks like it would have made a great runway.

    While you can't read the names here, this the International Aviators' Shrine, at the Mission Inn in Riverside CA. The wall and chapel have been visited by a lot of the giants in Aviation. People like Yeager, Douglas, Lindbergh, ÔÇ£HapÔÇØ Arnold, Earhart, John Glenn, Rickenbacker; well you get the picture. Not an airplane in sight, just the people who made flying great...
