Goodly Morning Paul... :whistle: :dance:

Good Link and some other Links there also which are worth watching.

My first flight was in a Tiger Moth off the Old Homestead. It belonged to my grandfather and dad.

When I started to take flying lessons from them I was hardly a teenager.

I remember my grandfathers instructions...the first thing you do...

Every time I see that movie "Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines" I think about it and laugh... :dance:


[Reading from flight instruction manual]

Colonel Manfred von Holstein: Step one: sit down.
Cheers...Happy Landings...Doug

Flying Magazine... :) *sinks back to those '70s and '80s weekend mornings, reading them the way others read Playboy*
