Wow Tim, glad things are going the right direction for your family with that. It's not easy dealing with things like that that seemingly go on forever. We're all pulling for her(smile or no smile).

Great news Tim.

It'd be funny if it weren't too true.

The most smoke I have ever experienced was at The Gathering of Mustangs and Legends. I'd get back to the hotel and take multiple showers and still be able to smell corvus oil. In fact, I could smell it on the flight home. Everyone's eyes were burning, it was brutal. When you have high humidity, no wind, The T-Birds/Aeroshell/Stearman/Wagstaff/Red Baron Pizza Team back to back, then an aerial battle reenactment with pyro and two thirds of the airfield on fire, it gets pretty smokey.


Oww yeah the Gathering I think that was the only time that is smiled for 4 day's in a row what an event to see mustang after mustang and other stuff coming in.
The only thing i regret from that event that i almost didn't have walked around and only have been on the stands.

I still hope that something like that will come again in the future I know that the legends are almost gone but an event like that would be awesome.

Good memories


I still wonder where all the good video of the flying (out of the back of the C-130) and interviews in the tent of the legends went to...


I have wondered the same thing. Experience leads me to believe that it might have turned into a cluster and nothing much was captured. I know there were several mechanicals during the run, including defective smoke on at least one of the Birds. Regardless, not much bang for the huge bucks!

BTW, this comes to you from a very comfortable seat on a GV. Man, this kind of thing makes it very difficult to face 37D on the airlines!

Looks like there is money to be made in photography after all.

@Tim: I'm so happy for Eugenie and all her family and friends.

@Jay: Three excellent and varied images on one page!

@Jim: A GV, you say? Dayum! 37E my a$$, that's a big step up from 2B, except maybe on Emirates.

Rare Bear is on a flatbed and on it's way to Ezell's shop in TX. Who knows what will happen. Rod Lewis fired everybody that was working on the plane.

Is my mind playing tricks on me, or wasn't there a contest to design the next paint scheme for Rare Bear? Thought I had seen that somewhere a couple months back. What was behind the firing?

Precious Metal had the contest, and they are not using the winning design, but the winner will get something. As for the firing, it's a long story that I know a lot about through various people, but it is best left told by those who actually were there.

To Jim and all of you who offered your prayers for my 25 yr old Eugenie, who nearly died from blood poisoning which so nearly killed her earlier this year, she had her follow up open heart surgery today and the outcome is ++++.



Tim,

Eugenie is a beautiful young lady, so glad that the surgery went well. Thanks for letting us know, and remembering how many of us were pulling and praying for her.

I had heard that they consulted a aircraft restorer and seasoned air racer and thought it was Nelson. She will be in good hands now...

@Tim Adams: What do you hear about the viability of the Reno air races this year? I'm tempted to go, if they hold them.
