1968 Wave Flight

In the previous post's comments, a discussion developed about an article from Soaring Magazine. Now, thanks to Tim's Wayback Machine, you can read it again (or for the first time if you missed it 40 years ago).

Mt Rainer Wave

I swiped this picture from:

More pictures can be found there.

Three of them.

1. Tom traveled to BHSS, where he finished off his training and passed his Private Pilot flight test (Congratulations, Tom, but this doesn't get you out of the job of reassembling our 2-33.) Next time you see Tom, ask him to recite the standard tow signals, and get his opinion on the use of radios.

2. Tony traveled to TBSS, where he will fly this winter. It was his first long-distance drive with 7H. Ask him what he thinks of high-speed tractor trailers on I-81. Here's hoping he'll send us some flying stories.

3. This is the 100th edition of PMSC News for 2008. I'm so proud.

You may remember that Roy from GBSC takes a flying vacation in South Africa each Spring. His writeup appeared in PMSC News last year. Well, he's at it again. You can read his story here for the next week or so. I expect that he will have some good pictures, too.

"Bloemfontein" means fountain of flowers. It's a nice name for a dusty place in the veldt.
