Today would be an ideal air to air day, if the wind wasn't whipping. We have a beautiful scattered to broken layer at about 4,500'. If the sky holds, it'll be a fabulous sunset. Tuesday, after a spate of morning meetings, the KS-4x4 will get a full workout right up to dark. We'll see what it's made of. My Kenyon dealership is growing rapidly, sold four last week, without really trying. I ain't gonna retire on it, but I can save the buyers a few bucks and it's fun! If this keeps up, I'll start stocking a few at HQ just for grins. I've been asked about rentals too, not really sure I want to mess with that. They are rugged units, but treated abruptly, the mechanisms can wear quickly and that might not show up for months, then you're left with a capsule filled with titanium junk with no one to hold accountable. On the other hand 10 week long rentals and the average KS is paid for, hmmmm.

Cool news. Only thing is why couldn't this be on a weekend??

Don't know about the flying tours, but a cockpit tour wouldn't be too bad.

And some month I still have to get out to the Spitfire hangar in your neighborhood.

Shoot 'em up Boys. While the inside the Beltway knuckleheads dismantle our military, I think the WWII aircraft operators/museums will have a very good year on the circuit.

Glenn, is that a Skybolt? At first I thought it was a Pitt's but that perspective has me in doubt. If that is in fact a Skybolt, I need to buy the builder lunch/dinner/breakfast as I begin to put mine back together. The die has been cast, Chandler and I came back from an evening Cub flight a few days ago, he walked over to the Skybolt fuselage and said, "Papa, could you put this back together and take me for a loop and a roll?" What can you say to that request except, "I'll get right on it!"

The cowling work on that aircraft looks outstanding!

P-51C Princess Elizabeth arrived in the UK in a shipping container last week.
Believe this is to be displayed at the Duxford Spring Air Day on 26th May, possibly by the Horsemen.

Jim,

Looks like the guy who took these dusk / night A2Gs over JFK uses a Kenyon gyro going by the plate on the bottom of his camera visible in the pic of him.

Glenn,

the Kenyon Gyro & D800 combo seems to be working a treat.

A quick check shows that it is a Skybolt.

Hi Mark, Those are cool shots. I don't recognize the plate, but it looks like a Blad in his hand. Can't imagine the dialogue with the powers that be to get either a helicopter or a 182 in any of those positions. Must be Bloomberg's brother!

After that salvo of A2A from Glenn, I think I will hold off a while with my G2A from the show. Just doesn't hold a candle to his piston flavored goodness

If I'm correct she will stay for the flying legends also. but will be cool to see her again.
funny just received a decal set for a model kit presenting this P51C.
