Now that Four Three Bravo is back in action, the Jellystoners are back to doin' what we do best: Knocking back slushies at the Bush-N-Vine Produce Stand in York, South Carolina!
Before we go any further; check out this video of the Sound of Freedom:
Watching Four Three Bravo taxi out sure put a smile on my face! So did cruising over the York County countryside in the Pontiac Red and Sun Valley Ivory biplane. (I could have written, red and white Hatz, but where's the poetry in that?)
On to the photos from today's adventure:
Young Colin Baker. Almost ready to check out.
Colin and Joe on the steps of the Bush-N-Vine.
The object of our obsession!
They have this stuff too.
Brother Baker and I swapped airplanes for the return flight to Jellystone Air Park. It was my first chance to fly Four Three Bravo since the overhaul. The Mighty 85 runs sweet! Still working on seating the rings; so it was 2,400 RPM and 205 degrees on the oil temperature gauge for the next thirty minutes. Five minutes after takeoff I asked my First Officer: "How's summer vacation going?" No response. It was "lights out" all the way back to the hangar! At times it can be lonely being the Captain. . .
Once the airplanes were put to bed we set out for the Daily Special at the Ebenezer Grill.
After the Dereliction of Duty photograph, the young First Officer refused to have his picture taken.
Until next time. . .
