B-25 Flight Complete At Last

I was cooler today but the ceiling was high and visibiliity was good.  Mostly cloudy, nice that some blue was showing.  I was in the second flight of the day so the engines were already warmed up, didn’t take long from strapping into to engine start and down the taxi way.   It was a great flight.  I tool lots of pictures and video.  I hope it all comes out well.   Soon as I have it processed, I’ll stick it up here.

I have to go to the shop and finish packing for SEFF which is running at this time.  We plan to be open in the vendor area Wednesday through Saturday.  Not sure how well my tether from laptop to phone will work there.  If it works well, I should be able to get some shots uploaded.

Our flight was the last one of a long week of flights the Barbie III crew put in.  It was a great time.   I heard they were anxious to head for home.   After disembarking, I asked one of the crew if he remembered his first warbird flight?  He said oh yes!  I told him that I just had mine.

Eddy Noble and son Curtis (remember Nikitis Aircraft) were on the same flight.  What a surprise to ride with people I knew.  They were kind enough to show thier 1946 Cub to my family.  It is in excellent condition.   Well over 100 youth have gotton a ride in Eddy’s Cub. Meeting Ed’s son, I can tell you he’ll be a successful postive force in the world. What a gentleman.

I’ll try to stick up photo’s and more details about the experience later in the week. I noticed a big uptick in visitors since I put the post up yesterday. Thanks for following!

Happy Flying All!
Dave
