Hard to believe I am going into my 6th season, time flies. We just completed ground school over Wednesday and Thursday and departed today IFR for Ft. Lauderdale. This is the first stop on a very hectic schedule. Please come out and say hi!

If the schedule is how it was last year, I'll be looking forward to seeing you guys up in my neck of the woods in August. ;)

The Mustang looks great!

Hey Rick, do you know if you guys are going to stop by KAGC again. It never shows up on the tour dates, but you guys always pop in for a few days in like Aug or Sept?

Just curious as i'm trying to get my 2008 schedule together, do you know when you may be in Washington (Oly, Seattle)? Thanks and look forward to seeing those gals again. Hope I can save enough to do the 25 this year!

Mustangdriver, I really don't keep up with where the bombers are going after Texas. I'm down here in Houston and really focus on the aircraft that are here. The best way to find out the schedule is to keep checking at http://www.collingsfoundation.org. As it develops they'll post it on the site.

Sunny Florida...yeah right ;P We are down to one aircraft as the B-25 toasted its left engine departing New Smyrna. It should join us in Naples. The "san jose" Mustang is coming right along as is the A-36. The Corsair is also in annual and will soon be ready for the 08 season.
