    Wow, you do get warmer days down your way. Not been over 70 here, but it has been real nice out.

    So, if summer is here, it must be time for memorial day fly-bys. We got an hours notice that the local guard was going to perform a lap around the state doing a pass over each state hospital. Being that for some reason I am well versed where our local hospital is we drove up and hung around. Sat for a half hour and I was surprised how many cars came in around us.
    Carolyn said they were to fly over at 12:21, she was outside the car having a smoke. I turned the key on to see 12:19 on the car's clock, grabbed my camera and was crossing the street when I heard someone call out, "here they come". I spun around as the camera was coming up, one pass but my time at airshows around the country trained me enough that I still got my shots off.
    They were running low, might have been right down to hard deck at 500AGL, it was a nice pass and was the first time I saw them without afterburners on.

    Sad news, one of the four J4/1320 Amigo's in this photo went west on Saturday night. 1st J4





    My good pal Dave Winrock 77 had been feeling not quite himself the last couple months. Got in last week to see a Doctor and they ran some tests. They told him he had Leukemia and might make it a couple months with their help. Dave said thanks but I'm going home. Dave was an amazing craftsman, almost everything he had he bought damaged and rebuilt it. Flooded house on lake Champlain that no one wanted, hail damaged C172 that he got from insurance and redskinned. Rebuilt EDO 1320 floats, then restored his J4 over the winter. Has a C30 1976 Chevy duelly that he shoehorned a Ford/IHC 7.3 into. Rebuild a RV6 that got hit by a car, he bought it off of eBay, had it flying in 7 months and had less then 18k in it. His lastest project was a damaged R22 Robinson he got last year and started taking lessons at 77. Never got discouraged with any job, just a fun new challenge to solve.

    Blue skies my friend, I enjoyed every second with you
