    up and waiting to depart they decided to nix the flyby. I was in the AAM parking lot then decided to head over to the movie theater parking lot when I heard on my scanner that they would
    be using 3-2 to depart. A few others had the same idea. Looked pretty cool as they flew out into the breezy blue skies.

    This was expected and planned for, they just did not know how bad it would be. As per the flyby, Charles apologized to me for not doing it as #3 or #4 was running a little rough and it if did not clear they were going to return and turn some wrenches. Charlie is the son of Frank Moss, the owner/Pilot and a true gentleman. It was really nice to meet him and his family. I hope we see them again soon.

    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Yeah, I also noticed they had a quick stop over at PHF on their way home to OPF and was wondering back then if that stop had already been planned or if they had to stop and check their engines out ??Anyway, I'm glad they made it back home safe to Miami and hope they'll be back to FRG again someday !!

    THanks Fred. While they were lined up and waiting Tower kept asking them if they were ready to go and they kept asking for more time. Glad they got home safely. Those old beauties
    must need a lot of wrench work.

    certain short-sighted production company
    Can't say I blame them. The show hasn't aired yet. Though the kitty is awesome!

    There have been only 86 photos of this bird's visit posted so far (debating whether or not to count the kitty). For shame, I expected better from this crowd...
