Must be part of your super-secret double-naught spy work with your low-level FEMA clearance and (snicker) Texas Security License, yes?

He talked a little bit about how they've brought him out to work on it hands on when they have questions or trouble with certain components.

He's contracted on another project they're supposed to start developing in the next few years and then he'll probably retire after that one.

That's cool. The ex's dad does hydraulic stuff for Raytheon. He wears that same damn oldschool Beechcraft hat every time he comes out!

I want to buy a surplus L38.

They go for under $200,000 sometimes.

Hopefully there is a coat of clear over all that polish!!! The C185 is the plane I hope to own one day soon. Lots of range, plenty of power and very useful payload. They hold their value extremely well and it is hard to find a good one for less than 120K. The FBO I fly out of in SZP (CP Aviation), is working on upgrading two really, really nice 185s right now, one of them is owned by Baron Hilton. I get major wood everytime I walk over to check on the progress on them.

Can someone here host a video if I email it to them? I have had a cool video of the Super Scoopers picking up water for a while now, but I don't know how to put it up here.

Do you have a Smugmug account? If so, you can host it there. Or try YouTube.
