We had a great time at the Rexburg, ID, Legacy of Flight Airshow. Here you can see, left to right, Todd Therp's Pitts S-2B; "Unfinished Business"; a beautifully restored Beech 17 Staggerwing; the nose of Brad Wursten's MXS-R; Gary Rower's 450HP Stearman; and the nose of Dave Erickson's Zlin 50. Not seen in this picture, but also performing, was Buck Roetman in his highly modified Christen Eagle II.

We gave away our first model at the Rexburg Airshow. This lucky young man recieved serial number 001. Giving away the model was one of the highlights of the show.

John Bagley graciously offered to take me for a ride in Bob Hoover's P-51 Mustang, "Ole Yeller", after the airshow on Saturday. All I did was ask if I could sit in it!

Taxiing out for takeoff, I am for the first time in my life, breathing P-51 exhaust from inside the cockpit! This 15-minute flight was one of the most memorable flights of my career, and I can't thank John enough for being so generous with his time and his wonderful airplane. Thank you John, most sincerely.
