Great WX today for flying the B-17 despite being near the cross wind limits.

Bill Carswell took Tony up in his C-170 this afternoon after the last flight of the tour here.

Re: Cornell photos.

G'day

Tony is here in North Bay flying Sentimental Journey this week. I spent some time with him this afternoon.

The B-17 is headed off to Peterborough on Monday morning.

They have already sold all their rides there and believe or not , the nose position went first.
