    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Yup. Saw one last Sept while over by East 96st in Manhattan and also thought at first it was a CH-53. From a distance it does have that look.

    So instead of teaching an old dog new tricks WE CAN teach a new pilot an old plane. Nice.
    And I think you commented John how shiny it looked. It sure did in the sun yesterday!!

    Paul's T-6 getting prepped for the engine cowl repaint...should be ready for airshow

    In my kitchen chowing down some pizza with my wife around 6PM and I hear something roar over my house. Ran onto my deck and saw it was the B-24 on a left bank onto Runway One Four. Came by two more times and looked pretty cool. Love the sound of that old engine kicking and sputtering and spitting. LOLOL!!

    Oh. I don't mean to be a snob or anything but Miss Hap is a B-25, I thought you may have been talking about the B-24 Ol '927 that's coming in for the airshow.

    LOL YOU? a SNob? No way!! Actually it was Miss Hap the B-25!!!!!! Good correction there. And sadly I see on another thread the B-24 is cancelled due to mechanical.
