Bill Scott took beautiful pix of each plane touching down (except I came in too
early durn it!) and printed out 8x10s for each arrival - watch this site for
links to his pix.

Also, special thanks to John Cantwell (deceased) for passing on several bottles
of Bravura Del Sol after sun rub to his daughter Ann (Howard) used to put out a
MAJOR sunburn on you-know-who's arms neck and legs. Maybe more info on this
subject than needed.

Anyway - I'll post all the pix and names of the Musketeers loaded on the BAC site:


I'm heading out tomorrow O-dark-30 for a week in Terre Haute Indiana for work,
but I'll get all this stuff done out there...

CU up there!
