    First day back on the forum since leaving for Detroit last Friday. Since I got back I have been busy at work and sick from some bad airshow food. I know what you are going to say Scott but the beer kept me healthy at Geneseo and my problem at Willow Run was I only had three beers over the weekend, not enough to kill the worms :roll:

    Anyway, here are a few pics from the exciting weekend.

    Grumman TBM Avenger torpedo bomber.

    Bored, hell. Great stuff. Let me know if you're going to by in airspace down my way. I've got a friend with a commercial rating that's dying to get back in the sky. 1, 4, and the last are my favorites. Photography and flight. Can you get a better combination?

    Don't worry about boring me. I use to build model airplanes when I was young and one day I'm hoping to get a pilot's license. Anyway, your 4th one stands out for me.

    Hey Scott, They don't party as much at Yankee as they do at Geneseo and I had my wife with me. I still had a 2-4 in the trunk just in case an pilots were loking for a cold one in the evening. As you can see by the first photo I met up with Terry Rush again. He was one of the guys that almost helped us close Club 41 at Geneseo. The big shows are all over for me now but I still have a visit to the Fighter Factory in a few weeks and a few fly-ins around Ontario.

    Cheers,

    Eric

    These are awesome shots! How fortunate you must be to have access to the skies! The only beef I have is your large logo. I would love to see these without it but I certainly understand your concern in doing so. Great work Sir! :cheer:
