    Hey Kurts,

    Sounds like a fun trip! Lots of smoke and TFRs here in Central Oregon due to wildfires right now if your planning on passing over this way. Some cool air attack planes fly out of the Redmond tanker base (DC4's 6's and 7's, P2V's, P3 Orions, and some Canadian outfit). Maybe you'll see some in the air! Stop by if you need a pit stop (the Clipper's flying!). have a safe trip.

    Sorry to hijack the thread. Congrats on the new plane Jon!!

    When will you be on Lopez?

    I realize that I am about 9 years late, but if this reaches you I can give you the complete story of this airplane. I was close friends with the owner and flew in it many hours in the late 70s and early 80s. Private email is esxkay@gmail.com

    That's OK, these little planes are more about charm, fun and adventure than they are about speed!

    And 9 years in the lifespans of our planes are a blink of an eye!
