    Namvet, here's some news for you about FIFI. Yesterday, they did a test flight, but had to make an emergency landing. Here's the story:

    The HQ of the Commemorative Air Force is here in Midland. I've been a member off and on - right now off due to so much else going on. But back about 2 or 3 years ago when they first started restoring her I was pretty active, and was in the hanger a lot when all they were stripping her down and restoring her.

    The CAF Airsho is coming up Oct 9-10.
    Here is info about the show:

    I love that whole week before the weekend show, when all those classic planes start flying in and practicing. I don't even have to leave my house to watch the show, they all fly right over me. FIFI will definitely be the star of the show this year.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
