Taylor the airplane is very cool and I know first hand the hard work and dedication it takes to get a warbird in the air and keep it there.
Everyone who does those things gets a great big attaboy from me. But the paint scheme is no prize winner and the decal is...well you know.
Besides you forgot to tell me to "KNOCK IT OFF!" :roll: :idea: :!: Which is probably why I haven't :idea:
If you say why that particular bird doesn't have a decal after all this time I won't mention it again.

I can't touch Al's artsy-fartsy stuff, but here's a few more from Thursday.

The day started with almost continuous rain. I just happened to find myself under the Caribou when Doug Jeanes and the rest of the Cavanaugh bunch appeared. Many thanks to Doug, Stewart, Bob, and the rest for letting me park my butt in the back and swap lies. I'll let Doug warn you of the hazards of cheese ball farting CV-2's during photo shoots.

Here's one of Doug's better side as he's promised a spot on Aeroshell Square "just as soon as we can get that C-130 moved... should be just a coupla' hours from now..."

Image


(Coupla' hours later...) Who wants a P-51 ride when you can taxi around in a CV-2 (twin R-2000's vs a Merlin -- no contest). Notice the Ford Trimotor ate our dust in the quarter mile.

Image


"And that was when I lost my thumb..." General Guenther Rall never fails to draw a crowd.

Image


Never know who'll turn up to hear Guenther Rall.

Image


Any guesses on my new favorite Curtiss product?

Image

Image

Image


Little Rebel gets poked and prodded by the judges.

Image

Image

Image

Image


Instant celebrities.

Image


Taylor's Sentinel must be seen in person to truly appreciate.

Image

Image



And a few more odds-n-ends as they drip dry.

Image

Image

Amazingly, the sun broke out just in time for the cookout at Zack and Jenn's. It was a good time meeting old friends and new.

Dan,

Dan K - enjoy the commentary, as always. Sorry I couldn't make it this year to Zach's or the "recruiting event" afterwards. Any pics?...or were you not able to draw the ladies without me there? I'm too busy getting my airplane back together with fresh fabric and paint. I'll fly it to Osh in 2010. See you there.

Jaybird - love the new paint scheme! I like the fact that it's not the typical Pitts look with red and blue or red and white, or red and anything else...I think you get my meaning! And yes, recruiting pics will be available soon.

Here was my entertainment for the four days i attended oshkosh, only have one for now as I am staying in Rockford until i head home tomorrow.

Big thanks to jive and lunar for making this all possible!

The MS 760 Paris Jet.

One of Jive and Snort enjoying the paris jet, which cool that it is called that cause my hometown is named Paris, and we also went as Paris flight. Some cool irony there!
