On to Galesburg

In the course of our travels we often meet people who fall in love with and are willing to be of service to the Flagship as we have. One was the guy in Montana who spent three days cleaning the plane with alcohol, nose to tail while the crew sat in chairs in the shade. Now we have mechanic Mitch Mashburn and his two assistants, Greg Mainning and Jason Carrig, who volunteered to do the 30 day inspection at no charge to the group. Gene said it was one of the most thorough he has ever seen.  Thanks, guys, you are helping to keep this old bird in the air!!
Tomorrow, Sept. 5th, we launch early for Galesburg, IL for the Stearman Fly In. Captains Rick Smail, and David Gorrell have come from Park City, UT. Captains Zane Lemon and Steve Jacobson have come from Dallas-Fort Worth. Stewardess Peggy Fairchild has come from Jupiter, FL. They will be joined by Captain Gene Christian and Stewardess Sheryl Christian. See you there!
