trust me, it's nice. a least the photo has an RV wingtip! of course I had to power back my 320 against his 360. the pilot with the new paint is 82 yrs young and his planned flying list this year is longer than my arm. if he does it, it will put me to shame.

fuel at KBFR 100LL = 3.60 / gal

it a very nice place to visit and has two runways.

Default Bedford Paint Shop

Steve thanks for posting Bedford paint shop. Had no idea that there was a paint shop just 30 miles north of us. I'll stop in and check it out. Maybe this year we'll be able to meet at French Lick, IN again for the Fish Fry.
