      Yeah, this is just made-up stuff, isn't it? And 4 hours to the moon? Does that mean at cruise speed? If not, that's averaging like 60,000 mph, so by the time you take acceleration and deceleration...

      I highly recommend it. It's flying season, so a lot of the planes were gone today, but the polished B-25 is in the shop and the Cobra was parked outside ready to go. They towed the Falcon 900 out,...

      I figured it might be out of my budget since the paint job on that Falcon cost 5 times as much as I paid for the plane! :eek:

      West Star Aviation

      Picked up a freshly-painted Falcon 2000EX at Grand Junction this week and ferried it to its home base for its owner.
      The guys at West Star do a seriously great job of painting! :eek:

      El Capitan had failed a checkride or two and sounds like perhaps he shouldn't have been a pilot. Sad. :(
