We just got back from Toledo. Big crowd, new DA's, still not interested in the (edit) Cub type planes AW makes. I was speaking specifically about the Bravada, very pretty, but not my cup of tea. The Extra 260 is cool though. The new bipe they make is very nice and they had the pilot of the full scale one there. He was very interesting to talk with. Some of the static displays were nothing short of amazing. They had a Canadian trainer jet (I don't remember the designation) that had real aluminum skin, a port for the APU, and a MiG 15 that looked real. Again, not my cup of tea to own, but I totally appreciate the incredible workmanship.

Had a good day today, found " the truck " and had a great day of flying. I'm actually beat........ Both Ricky Bobby and Jay threw caution to the wind ( literaly ) and got it on the deck. Everyone went home happy and with their planes intacked. Loving my new pipes on the 100, Both planes seem pretty dialed in. Tomorro looks good............

Scotty, you still down for some paint work for me?? It is gonna be a complete strip and refinish. If you aren't down for it, let me know, and I'll see what I can get done before I get it sent to ya. How does Dalton hatch, cowl and wheel pants sound??? Nothing too dramatic, my grafix guy at BandE says my scheme is pretty busy, but it ROCKS!!! Pretty basic with the paint, really.
