    Listening to FiFi's engines transported me back to St. Louis before the airport was big. My Dad used to take me and my brother (I was perhaps 5 or 6 years old at the time) and sit at the end of the runway and watch DC-3's take off. I will never forget the sounds from those planes. The sounds from FiFi reminded me a lot of it.

    Back in the day the terminal was located on the west side of the airport and was a small building with an observation deck. You could stand on the deck and smell the engines and feel the wind from them as they throttled up to head for the runway. It was a really cool thing to do with your Dad.

    I wondered if that was you Mike!

    we were in the black minivan that pulled out just before you did from Drake.

    Ive seen 6 moto Guzzis so far today

    Oh, on our tour of the plane, we also saw Arkwizard touring the plane, he asked if it would pop a wheelie, and they made him exit the tour!

    Standing on my deck this morning taking my first sip of coffee when I was startled by a low flying plane. Guess it was FiFi, flying low in a hard bank to the West. Guess she was lining up to land at Drake. Pretty freaking cool. Had no idea what it was, until I looked @ AdvRider. Of course you FFs were on top of it. Probably the coolest loud machine I'll see all weekend :deal
