I miss it. During its 10-year residency at 9A1, I can’t tell you how many times I crossed the tarmac to say hello, to touch it, or to tell it how I would like to see it flying. I walked over to its’ old spot yesterday, thinking how elated I am that it is flying again, and what an incredible feat Clive Edwards and his crew accomplished in just 6.5 weeks. Delighted that it is in the air again. But – yep, I miss it.
The photo on the left was taken May29, 2010. The center photo was taken July 27, 2010 at 9A1. The right photo was taken by Jeff Reuschle at Oshkosh on July 29th, 2010. Wow.
