    Spurwink fly in---Pancakes in portland

    Spurwink Fly in is tomorrow July 8 at Cape Elizabeth Maine. Pancakes and such. Always a good time
    The host Phineas Sprague is one of a kind, a real gentleman. Say hello and thank him if you see him. He carries a big stick most of the time

    Hi Jim---Phineas must be approaching 90 yrs old---he`ll need a SMOKING RV-8 "salute" at that time---as a young flight instructor at Port O Maine Airport I use to fly a Ted Wainwright to his potato fields on Richmond Island in 1959---the potato storage building foundation still remains on the NW end of the island---Ted`s C-180 was "housed" in the original Quonset hangar at Spurwink----Capt Cub

    Looks like andy and i are headed down at 6 or so. I like to be on the ground before the big crowd gets there and you have to land beside 300 people. I always make a messy one down there.
    See you there Cap? No smoking low pass at this one, the local FAA guy is the one that will park you. He usually doesnt have a sense of humor. Have you swapped out your Husky for a slot for an FX3? Cant wat to see it!

    Wish I was going but I’ll be on the water in Vermont instead.

    Bill, Tom and I were talking last night and came to the conclusion that you need someone to advertise, promote and maintain your sport cub while you’re flying your 180 this summer. I happen to know a guy that’s available for that job. I seem to think he’s worth more than he charges but Tom said I should give you a deal. Let me know when you’re ready and I can pass on his info.

    Hey John,
    Have you started writing a book yet? If not let me be the impetus. The stories you have would be fun read.

    Someday that kid with the smoke will grow up. I was doing all right until a fat man in bermuda shorts and black socks and smelled like onions was holding court beside my cub. His speech of the day was to crap on carbon cubs and the company in general.
    Of course he had never flown one, but knew more about them than the rest of us. I normally dont say "watch this" but it seemed appropriate at the time.Looks like I was flying by the barn. I hope the smelly fat man muttered to himself the rest of the day. And another thing, lay off the donuts mister


    On the other hand, the host of the day is Phinea Sprague. Hes a peach. He opens up his farm and his home to everybody, both in town and pilots. Hes knocking on 90, still pretty sharp.
    He was asking about a tall guy from OH who gave him a ride
