Default Sorry Sarge,

I thought I had a shot of the three or four on the end you were parked - evidently I was wrong.

And yours does get a lot of attention.

I was there on the tail end of lunch but your paint scheme is memorable and I sure like it.

Turbo was probably at Stewart for their big airshow. Not sure though.

Southtarnation: Thanks for the complement

Myra and I spent Friday night with Turbo and Kim at Stuart. He was tied up with the Stuart Airshow which also went through this weekend. I am proud that he is my friend and a great host. Thanks for posting more photos of Winterhaven. I was too busy eating to get all that I wanted. It was great wathing all the takeoffs after lunch. It looked like a dine and dash party.

I forgot to mention that it was really nice of Winterhaven to paint thier fire hydrants the colors of our RV6A. Great minds think alike.
