Which static line outfit jumped? There are a few WWII re-enactor groups that jump at shows and other stuff. Which one was that?

Thank you...

Yep. Did you ever think you'd have so much fun while puking?

About the VAC airshow

I didn't get to come down for the show. Maybe next year. A pilot that lives at the airport across the street was flying in the show.

No, and all on board know it's just a fact of life, so it's all cool.

I just want to go up again. I think if I did this a dozen more times, I could cure my motion sickness.

I dont actually know, but could find out next week. Look up the couple that you know of and see if this weekend was listed as titusville, fl?

today started out well, got to fly with B25 Killer B this morn and ended the day with getting to try on the captains chair of a flight status F104 Starfighter! Great weather and great turnout for the weekend. Got to meet 2 WASP pilots, 3 Tuskegee airmen, one tuskegee airmen flight instructor, spent some time with friends I dont get to see but once a year....now im tired, getting some dinner and sleeping for 11 hours before work in the morning.



Avenger Restoration crew (im second from the right)

That pitts 12 sure is nice, but the propeller is broke, it turns the wrong way.
