Default its the season for cool shit at work for me

Today the worlds fastest harrier jump jet popped in along with its L-39 chase plane. Also, we get over flow from one of out customers on the field that does work on P-51s so I got to play with 4 of them.

When I was in the Marines abord the Saipan, Kearsarge, and Belleau Wood, we use to go up to the flight deck and watch the Harriers take off and land for hours... not much else to do when you are in the middle of the ocean.

Got to ride in Yankee Lady (B17) for the trip to Ludington on the 3rd of July. Buddy (AKA Lucky Bastard) got to right right seat and log .5 hours of B-17 dual. They had a chip detector trip on the 2nd trip on the 4th. Had to give back about $15K worth of prepaid flights. Bad for them. Had a great fly over to open the grand parade in Ludington.

P-51s are among the greatest machines ever built.

Still badass almost 70 years later.

The 17 is in the hangar right now minus one engine, well at least when I left today it was still hanging from the crane. It might be back on now.

I'm scheduled to fly on the Yankee lady on 5 August. I can't wait! hope she is all back together by then.

Love the P-51's and the harriers are an awesome plane in it's own right!

If you can let me know what you find. Kinda would like to let the others know why it went down. Lots of old timers meet at the airport in the AM to tell lies and laugh. They were all prety sad when we got the news she had a sick horse. Was it the same engine they had the cowl flap issues with? Does it still have all 4 Wright engines?

They are coming in for maintenance from Roush but because they are all wanting maintenance done before Oshkosh, they are coming in to fast for Roush's guys to get to them so they spend a few nights in our hangar because he can only fit 5 at a time in his hangar.

Are they getting ready for EAA? I'm in Oshkosh at the moment and all kinds of cool shit is flying in, and the show isn't for another couple of weeks.
