well aren't I glad I have 2 new P47s, a new P-40, 2 Mustangs, a big Spitfire and 2 little ones as well as a Douglas Dauntless.
The other thing I have for the 22nd is Tickets for a matinee show for "Come From Away". We can just not go she said. We all know where that is going, so sadly, I will have to miss Warbird this year. 
What could possibly go wrong?

Rob, didn't you know? It is just your luck that this year's Pre-Warbird day is being held on Saturday the 21st.  The Pre-Warbird day is intended for the celebration of all those who have other commitments for the 22nd.

Just checked with the Wing Commander and I was wrong, our tickets are for Saturday the 21st. We are staying downtown overnight and then driving to 6 Mile Lake to spend a couple of days with the kids. I will be thinking of you guys though.

Let me see.  Hmmmm.  I should be able to have the following ready:
- foamy P-51 (450 size)
- 480 size P51
- .45 size P-51
- .10 size Corsair...with Charlie at the helm.
- RareBrear- well, it started as a WW2 BearCat.
- B25 Mitchell (repaired small foamy)

Can we turn the heat down a little for this event.  With all the work I have done outside, I'm already medium rare*. ;)

Hi @Frank v B ,

Foamies are an excellent choice.  They float!!   8)

I'm an optimist.

Often, a forecast of <1 mm of rain, results in no rain.

Hoping for the best is good policy as is planning for the worst. Are there plans to reschedule if the weather doesn't co-operate on Warbirds Day?

@Frank v B will be giving a lecture on Meteorology 101 at Tim's starting at 1430Z (1030 EDT).  His presentation slides are attached below.

It is sure to be a thought-provoking lecture.

Andy's Alpha-Bet Soup again.

For those of us who have never taken a course in Airport hieroglyphics that report means nothing to me.  I do understand "It's raining, stupid". ;D
