I attended my local airport's annual open house today. The aircraft turnout was rather small compared to two years ago, but there were some gems on hand. I'll be posting up pics. But first - start-up of CAF's Red Tail Squadron P-51C.

Awesome. I wish I could afford one, would be a great way to shuttle to cities that otherwise would require 4-8 hour drives.

Sad thing is, if I would really just focus on saving the money for something like this, with enough time, I could afford it. You'd think by 42 I would have developed that kind of discipline. :p

But then you'd have to save up the same amount for fuel :D

I just checked - $1300 have gone through my HobbyKing account. Though that's with my friend buying his planes through my account and all that, I'm probably up to $800. :O

Why? I haven't developed it at 54. I have friends at 90+ years and they haven't developed it either. :confused:

In my year and 10 months of this hobby I am out about $5K so far. ;)
