Hey Randy, how was the camping trip? Sounds like you got more flying stories than fishing stories???
They weren't biting or what??? Anyway, there were thousands of man hours devoted to Billie and JR, the airplane. I spoke with 3 of the guys who worked full time on them the last two years and they are sad to see all of their work go down the drain even though all of them had moved on to other jobs before this disaster. They may come help on the A-26 or B-25 when that gets back on the front burner. Learned that Stevo is getting married in April. Seems he found a low mileage gal he really is sweet on. It will be awhile before we see him at the hangar again seeings how he is in love now!!! Congrats to Stevo. Rick got a new job and the opportunity to also work on the DC-3 AA Flagship Detroit for a bit. Pat is still blowing up stuff (pyrotech) and flying SAAB's when he can as a factory delivery guy. So there is life after volunteering to work on old airplanes, but I don't want this to get out. Keep it to yourself! Good to hear from you Randy... keep those cards and letters coming!
JR, the pilot.
