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

Frank

@Frank v B ,

I may (do) call you many things, but never "stupid" (especially when there are so many better words to choose from in my Thesaurus!)   8)

Hi all lets call this one a wash out and try again next week.

Sorry for the short notice but i was hopeful the weather forecasters would be wrong about today's weather.

Thanks
Greg

Good call Greg. Here’s a video of Frank and Andy attempting a takeoff on the water soaked TEMAC field earlier in the morning. Frank flies first followed by Andy. Please enjoy. The link is here:

(Please use your imagination, thank you). ;D
Scene is from movie “Battle Hymn”.

Four of us met at Woodbine Tim's and dreamed about flying.  We consumed coffee instead.  Richard, Andy, Greg H. and I had a perfectly fine time.
Rain, Rain, go away..... and never come back!! ;)

@Frank v B showed the clientele at Tim's that he is a true master of the indoor fun fly!  His low pass  over the donuts was amazing!!  :D

Greg,
Thanks for Sunday...Sunday should work. I'd really like to come to this event but Tim Hortons in Bobcaygeon is a lot closer than Tim Hortons in Stouffville or Gormley.

Hi all... just a reminder that the forecast for Sunday's warbird event is looking very good (much better than last weekend :) )

....and if the weather wasn't a reason to come out. A generous donor has offered this awesome WWII print of Johny Johnson in combat. It is in a nice pewter colour frame which doesn't show here and includes an authentic RCAF set of ‘Wings’ inset in the mat.

So bring out those warbirds and "best in show" will take this home!
We'll explain more what "best in show" is at the piot's meeting Sunday at the event.

Thanks
Greg

Oh, Darn.  Can't make it Sunday the 29th.  Attending it would not be wise for me.  Our 40th wedding anniversary... if I make it another 3 days.  Will be thinking of you. :( :'(

I wonder how deep @Frank v B would get planted if he missed his 40th!!  (We all know that you have to earn credits before going to the flying field!) 8)

Happy Anniversary good buddy.  A real testament to Cynthia's triathlon-like stamina and endurance!!

Wow! Can't match Greg's vid for excitement, but here's my pic shot from my yard at about noon today and titled "Thirty Seconds Over Bobcaygeon"
It's an American B-25 visiting Peterborough heading S over Pigeon Lake...a fitting good omen for Warbirds Day...BTW, next week we get the B-29 FiFi
