IAC pals,

A group of us in Chapter 777 got together and are now the proud owners of S2A N31474.  Bill "Waldo Weed Wacker" Walthers (or just plane "Wacker") went down and brought the plane back last Saturday and I flew it on Sunday (did not try the landing, first attempts tomorrow).

I know this is no big deal for all you jaded A & U high time drivers, but for all my fellow Citabria and Super D colleagues;


Ahem, excuse I me but have yet to come down.

The 777th TAS is pre-mission planning for Borrego in April.  Looks like we will have 2 in the S2, 1 S1 and 2-3 in the Super-D.  Look out Sportsman!  Hope to see you there.


PS The Pitts is a real motivator in getting the 1D done.
