Nice picture, looks like vintage planes in the background has been a hit the last couple of months. I've always liked fast cars/historic cars and planes. Since my wife is into horses one my favorite places to go while in Dayton is the air force museum. I recommend it for anyone interested in vintage planes. You can see everything from the Wright flyer to the SR 71 blackbird. It is a very impressive place and admission is free!! If you into vintage cars there is also a Packard muesum downtown which also has a lot of historic cars.
Great looking car, NICE background:

Cars and Planes

Great photo. Congrats Mark.

Vintage planes. Love them. Dayton also has the only remaining XB-70 Valkyrie. You can even sit on the park bench beneath it and take in the atmosphere. My wife doesn't understand.

Mark do you know if Kermit still owns a P-51 called "Cripes-A-Mighty III"?

When I was in high school, (1979) he brought a couple of his planes up to Valdosta, GA, to escape a serious huricane. I remember being in awe of the P-51, and of Kermit. The tower gave him the green light to do a couple of high speed passes, and I was blown awway when that piston engined plane came accross ahead of it's own sound!

I think to this day that he is probably one of the coolest guys that I have ever met.
