    I think you with the steel wool have him beat!


    Sorry Tim, I like your shot better!

    LOL!

    I have him beat in the "FAT FACE" category anyway!


    Next time, I want to put the boom up 60' & have the sparks raining down from the sky.

    A little white Navy jet with a red tail landed about 40 minutes ago if anyone's interested. It's parked by Shelt air. Sorry for the lame description, i am running out as I would like to get a few shots before it gets dark. There were a few of them here last year for the air show, though they did not fly in the show and were kind of in the same spot that they are in now.

    Sounds like a T-45 Goshawk Navy Trainer.

    You would be correct sir! Mental lapse trying to run out the door, yet keep people informed.

    No problem Joe, thanks for the heads up and photos of the T-45 tonight.
    Probably another weekend visitor and hopefully it departs when there's better lighting later on Sat. or Sun.

    The AAM will be sending the B-25 down to NJ for maintenance on Sunday, so today they pulled her out of the hangar and had the first engine run of the season.

    No idea, Chris - they have to button up some cowling panels, preflight, probably fuel it. Maybe late morning, 11-12ish.
