As much as might like my day job, what I see outside my office there can’t hold a candle to what I see outside my office at my weekend gig.
Everything that wasn’t undergoing maintenance was down in El Centro for the first airshow of the season. For the backdrop on an event being held in our museum hangar, our C-46, China Doll, was moved up close and personal.
Inside the maintenance hangar, there was work going on on our F-24 (just out of sight on the right), our new Navion (white, blue, and yellow), the AAF’s B-25 Executive Suite (they lease space from us in our new hangar), and a plane I honestly am not familiar with (the white one with the red stripes) but think might belong to a CAF wing member.
If I can ever get my medical renewed and get my ass back into the cockpit for some refresher training, flying the Navion is a very real possibility by the time it’s ready to fly again in a couple of months.
That would be great!
