Unless I am completely mistaken..no one seems to be talking about the 100 year centenary....?



Is anything planned...?



You'd think the gratest invention for the last 100 years would kind of rate on the radar blip...



I'm baffled \

    Hmmmm Where to park my P-51 decisions decisions ?

    Several airlines are celebrating by handing out to their employees special commerative slips of paper, kind of a salmon or perhaps even pink color, with the recipient's name embossed on each so that they can be redeemed in the immediate future for a permanent vacation. Although apparently these certificates are not hard to get a hold of, it is not a limited edition giveaway or anything like that.

    Nick at Nite ran some pretty funny ads about the 100th year of flight when they added Wings to their line-up, but that's the most I've heard about it.

    Wished I's seen it..Still somehow I get the feeling that most of what is being organised is real tiddly winks stuff..Aviation IS the BIG thing..maybe everyone has taken it so for granted..Sigh..

    But I will never loose my love of flying.....and all things avionic...So unless things change big time around here I will be lighting a few birthday candles by myself..And after a few drinks....AirSluf I will do a few barrel rolls in your honor...

    Well, it's not like they are Dean Kamen. All they did was be first in flight. They could never figure out that two-wheel self-balancing scooter breakthrough.
