It's off 278. They sliced off the shoulder of a ridge for the runway. Nice FBO and terminal facility. All the mod cons. Hell, it's got airconditioning.

No, horse drawn conveyances are banned on public streets since before FDR.

Sorry mang, couldn't resist.

You must have me confused with Martin35. Except they hadn't invented the wheel yet.

Canadian F-18s? At least they can bring the heavy iron so Obama can't deny us all our guilty pleasures

That F4U is pretty cool... And the Honda powered T-6. LOL!

That's easy to do, since he's had to update his name several times since the original one in Cuneiform.

Yeah, last month at the Reno Air Races there was no military presence. No Thunderbirds, Blue Angles, F-22s................

Not me. I'm an old broke-dick, and if I didn't have the internet to drop crappy jests and jibes, I'd have no life at all.

Perhaps I can help. How about I send you a couple thousand dirty, empty cases and you process them and send them back? That should keep you busy for awhile. And I'll even send you some pics of me shooting them.

BTW, gots me 6k Berdan primers and now that the heat has abated the Shlomatic will soon be up and running. Well, as soon as deer season is over anyway.

Back to the OT: That Corsair is gorgeous! But some 20s stickin' outa the wings would be even better.

I have a special thing about the F4U. It was my first model airplaine, and I ended up building several more over the years. (If you had younger brothers growing up, you know why.)

BTW--I have dies for 8mm, 6.5 swede, .30x39 combloc, and .30x54r for my own use. If you have any such that need caps knocked out, PM me.

(sorry, ty.)

In our house I was the younger brother. My older brother had no interest in model air planes but was very patient with me while I covered every square inch of our bed room ceiling with models hanging by mono filament, mostly WWII types but I had every version of the Corsair including the F2G-1.

I may have need for the 54R, I'll check tomorrow and pm you.
