Red face Cheetah

I am a new member from Johannesburg, South Africa and am not P.C. savvy, so have had some difficulty in even getting to this stage, although by sheer luck I did manage to post a thread about my '79 Argosy in AZ. having a split ceiling !
Glad to be a member now as first bought a 1975 Airstream Sovereign 31' and shipped it to the RSA for my Earth Moving business, using USA Caterpillars, naturally ! My wife loved it as do I, but found the shiny finish not as easy as our painted 30' Argosy to keep up.
Now retired from contracting and flying - flew with the USAF 18th Ftr. Bmr. Wing at K55 in Korean War on F86 Sabrejets when SAAF 2 Sqdr. 'Flying Cheetahs' was under U.N Command and later as an Airline captain and bush pilot.
Will probably be asking a lot of silly questions about getting the Argosy up and working after 16 years storage as previously kept it with the dealer in KY. where it was bought. Seems I came to the right place to get the answers !
Thanks for the welcome message and reply to my split ceiling problem from Administrators.

Welcome Aboard

Semper-Fi Cheetah, thanks for your service.

No such thing as a silly question...

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

My thanks go to Admin. AAGE, ELIMINATOR 46 and ROBERT CROSS for your kind thoughts on my entry to the Airforums recently. Wishing you all a great Memorial Week-end.
