OOPS TOPP.



This is all I have at work atm...


Now Jim we woldnt want to rush you guys in the Wilson Aero purchasing dept, but as my trip is probably going to be a oncer , we need this done before the 16th....haha

I think I'll be found wondering around McKinney just checking hangers out....

Ive been skipping around the office for the past week just thinking about catching up with everyone, the MA2A get together and shooting next to you guys at Alliance . What a buzz I smiling like a Cheshire Cat...


Its going to be tough act to follow, even if the Goodguys Meet at Charlotte & SEMA at Vegas is petrolhead heaven..

I'd be honored to be captured by Jan Arie, or any of you. It would be weird to be the subject looking at the 25. I guess it's one heck of a view. Ross and Matt say it's the coolest thing they've ever done, and that's saying something!

I have to see that bigger grin, so we're on!

Gero we're in the process of doing that as we speak, but it will be very full a week after that deal is closed. The hangar already has a Tweet and a Stearman in it, soon a Pilatus. It doesn't take long


So Jim,

Does your hanger have rubber walls....sorta like the elastic-waist pants my grandfather used to wear to thanksgiving dinner? At this rate of expansion you're going to have to add an elevator and lower hanger deck.....or risk busting a button!

One of the reasons this has gone more slowly than we had anticipated, is that we've decided that it is much better to plan and then deal with a few things you hadn't thought of, than act quickly and deal with everything that you haven't thought of. Space isn't going to be a problem.

Sorry Al, the 16th is probably a little tight, I'll do the best I can.

Funny, but oh so true Jay. I'm looking forward to seeing you Buddy. Soon, when my shooting schedule relaxes, let's go shoot some serious Arizona together. Know anyone from the Rockies that would want in on some of that action?

That's one he should have on his wall for sure, or his wife's wall, or the wall of the hangar...or something...maybe I'm vane, but I would totally have a picture like that of myself hanging on my wall.

Clay Lacy's 1970 winner was in Reno this week. The plane has not flown for probably 15yrs. It is a real time capsule wearing it's original paint.

I think it was John Penney. John did most of the flight testing during the week.

The thrash begins. Thom Richard got to Reno from Florida with only 15 minutes to spare before the deadline. The reason the motor is yellow and red is because the race motor seized on the bottom end after only a 10 minute ground run. The race motor was built in about three weeks over in England.
The repaired motor you see here was built by the crew in Florida in about 47hrs. Red case is last years motor, yellow banks and heads from the race motor. Precious had people crawling all over it all week.

Looking forward to a chance to do that Jim.

Tim, nobody brings the flavor of Reno home like you do. That shot of Stevo is otherworldly.
