  Can anyone direct me to a good source to purchase 
Texaco Canopus 13?  

We are having the Terre Haute Air Fair in Terre Haute, 
Indiana July 12 - 14 at KHUF. Evidently the USAF 
THUNDERBIRDS require a 55 gallon drum of the stuff per 
plane for each sortie. And they'll be flying many times 
over the three day period. So we'll need LOTS of it.

They have a requirement that the smoke oil meet a 
milspec 1010 MIL L 6081.  Anyone know af a potential 
substitute that meets this standard?

Any help is greatly appreciated!  Of course you're all 
invited to attend if your in the area.  Fly in's are 
welcome. Gene Soucy, Jim Leroy, and WAYNE HANDLEY are 
on the schedule, besides the Golden Knights and many 
other performers. 6.5 hours of acts and demos.
