Okay, Stoney, dust off them wings.....

I say we take up a collection and buy this for Stoney:

Looks like Larry Kelley is selling his B25N "Panchito". Kinda surprised, he takes that bird to nearly every airshow on the east coast. Hope it stays here !!!

Off the top of my head I don't recall if she is an ex-Catch 22 bird or not.

Thats a lot cheaper than I thought it would be. I've seen and touched that bird many times, darn near flew in her but chose the B-24 ride instead. These guys that keep these warbird alive for us all to enjoy have incredible dedication, but they are living the dream too.

If every Filer put up $25, it would be a done deal!

Yeah, but how are we all going to fit aboard so Stoney can take us for a ride?

Well, last I flew a 46 was in 93. I could hop in with you if you wish. I'd be a totally semi competent flaps and gear guy.. LOL
