Default Has anyone seen my Russian #2?

My Russian has escaped again. He refused to give a detailed plan so I must use this forum to track him. No doubt he is in search of free food or lodging. Beware, he looks innocent enough...


But if given the opportunity....he is very sneaky and will break into anything for food!


Last seen heading towards the Ohio Valley!

He may indeed have a headwind but that is his personal Vne anyway!

Alfio,
I made the title #2 because this is the second thread where I had to send out a VAF APB. He has escaped once this year already....thus #2.

I do this as a public service announcement for unsuspecting VAFers. I would hate to see what happened to me happen to anyone else...

I'm curious why he has just landed at 4 airports in central Nebraska within the past few hours. All are within about a 30 mile stretch. No gas to be found? No free lodging? He's in Grand Island. Someone go feed that guy.
