"Light 'n Airy"

I filled the FaN with helium, but alas, she did not rise.

Back to the drawing board.

My outdoor bunnies love to hang out on the front mat of our airstream! Or maybe they just like to look at their reflections in the aluminum!

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse... but you take a boat in the air that you don't love... she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.

For some reason, you don't look as innocent, as you appear! LOL

Not quite as "out there" as Roswell, but mysterious nonetheless...

I'm sure you are tired of seeing pictures of our pooch - but jeepers, despite all the country we've motored through and friends we've met she remains a central source of joy, smiles, laughter and memories for all of our trips ...... the kids point out regularly that we have many times more pictures of the dog than we do of them ....... I blame the digital age ........ regardless, here are a few more pictures from our Bambi travels ...... a short "Ode to Attica" ..... (the kids were at home) ....

Thanks,


Jay

"I Think I Hear John Glenn in the Back"

Yes, that is my old F250, and yes, that is the Mercury 7 Friendship in the box.

It's a long story.....

Horray for Hollywood!

"Night at the Museum - Battle of the Smithsonian" was filmed here. Many of the scenes involved a mock-up of the National Air and Space Museum in DC.

All I can say - when the set decorators walked through our vintage hangar with a 175M budget - it was a good day for a non-profit organization. They went through our collection and said "Well, take this....and this....and this..."

What they couldn't rent from us, they had built as replicas, or scavenged from the various aircraft boneyards in Arizona. The Mercury 7 Friendship was one of those replicas. When the film wrapped up, the company donated many of the props back to our vintage airplane association, including the Friendship.

I subsequently used the Friendship as a prop for a special-event. It is made out of foam and is indeed "light and airy." So, when the tailgate of my old truck sprung open as I was cruising down the highway, the Friendshp naturally flew out and landed top-side up right in the middle of the highway. The Honda Civic behind me narrowly missed hitting it. Can you imagine how he would explain that to his insurance agent?

A couple of motorists stopped and helped me lift the Friendship back into my truck...and I proceeded merrily along to the event.

Anyway, if you ever see the film, you will see the same Friendship hanging from the ceiling during the chase scene where the Ben Stiller character is flying the Wright Flyer through the museum. Matter of fact, like the Honda Civic, he almost hits it. Is that art imitating life.....or life imitating art?

Well, I don't know if you'll win the photo contest, but that's the best story I've heard in a while. Awesome!
