Because the people who are given these flights are all seniors and knowing that seniors are very vulnerable to the virus, I am 100% certain that the AADF has cancelled this year's flights.

5 stars and beyond! What a great thing the AADF does and you'd probably be right with the comment although with appropriate social distancing, there could be hope if everyone did the right thing, but of course I don't know how many gather or where they have to gather.

Great shot Gman! what a great program - I did not know Fernley had an airstrip! Did you get a new lens?

Thnx, Gavin. Nope, no new glass, T. But none needed here. For this shot, I just stood on a ladder about 30 feet off the edge of One Five and clicked it as it went by. This was a requested photo shoot. I was contacted and asked to be there to click photos of the Stearman taxiing, taking off, doing flybys, landing, etc. It was fun. They loved the pics I gave them, and I had a super day.

How many of you remember the song, "fun, fun, fun 'till my daddy took my T-bird away?" This is way better!!
