    Yeah, still exploring Kentucky. The 1st is a Waco & still flown occasionally. These, & the Stearman were used to train military pilots, well into WWII. Luv those radial engines ! 2nd is registered as Experimental & I don't remember the make. Anybody can name it ? (save me a trip). It has an inverted inline engine & only my honesty kept me from lifting the metal sign that says: AIRPLANE RIDES 50 cents. 3r is a home built & its cockpit that comes with a pickle jar with parts the mechanic couldn't find where they went. It's common to hand a pilot a jar of nuts & bolts & tell him if he finds where they go to let the mechanic know.
    I'm so bored up here, that I am trying to find out how a Mowen bi-rotary eng., they have, works !
    Of course there is no category for planes. How about: Visual Art ?

      We have a museum relatively nearby that has a bunch of the civilian biplanes from between the world wars. OK I got it Advertising>Aviation. But then perhaps not but then again Advertising seems to work well for many items that don't fit in elsewhere.
      Come up here and I will put you to work cutting up tree branches to fit them into trash cans. No need to thank me.

      Great. Just what I wanted to do. Cut firewood ! This is a large museum & has a lot more in it. I'll buy a good ax & you hold your breath till I get there. LOL

      Great museum!! BB2 Keep your eyes and ears open! KY Aviation museum gets some pretty cool visitors from time to time like a B-29 named FIFI,(have some really cool photos of it in flight right over my head), a B-17, a B-24 and others. Even had a Ford Tri Motor there couple of times. Got to ride in that bad boy! It was awesome flying over the bluegrass horse farms at less than 90 mph. Cheers!
    4. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Nick, I will keep an eye out. I assumed that you & Thomas had been there. It's the only museum in Lexington. Would love to see those pix of the B 17. I've never seen one.
    5. fortapache fortapache, 5 years ago
      I have some interior photos of a B17. Cockpit, bombardier position etc. You don't have to do any wood cutting.
    6. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      That's a plus Fort. Why don't you post some ?
    7. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Very nice! I've never taken the time to go, but my father always loved going there.
    8. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Scott, there are young girls in bikinis at the welcome counter. We wish !
    9. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 5 years ago
      That would have been hard for me too, to leave the sign alone! I actually have a photo somewhere around here from when my great uncle took us kids to an air show...we were in the plane in the photo. Very cool!
    10. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      I avoid flying in things that I have worked on.
    11. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Scott, Nick & I are going there Sat.. A B-29 & maybe a 17. Join us. My address is on my profile.
    12. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Finally got the ID of the blue plane in the 2nd pix & added description above. No wonder I didn't recognize it. A Crosley "Moon Beam" ! Only a few variations made & this is the sole survivor.

      Progress is measured by the number of left-over parts, Mac.

    16. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      5 Days and a wake-up ! Actually spend the nite in Guadeloupe. My new profile pic didn't show up well. Disassembled plane for painting & I wrote, Some assembly required" on it.
    17. Roycroftbooksfromme1, 4 years ago
      looks like a cool place to by pass
      Guadeloupe is the most violent overseas French department.[44] The high level of unemployment combined with the legacy of slavery caused violence and crime to rise especially in 2009 and 2010, the years following a great worldwide recession.[45] Since the population is so small, the murder rate is slightly more than that of Paris, but with a murder rate of 8.2 per 100,000, Guadeloupe is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean.[46] Most of this violence is caused by the drug trade or domestic disputes, and the residents of Guadeloupe describe the island as a place with not a lot of everyday crime.[46]

      The only problem I ever had there, was being denied my rights to be in jail, But that's another story.
    19. Roycroftbooksfromme1, 4 years ago
      lol ya,,, you'll have to tell that story sometime .. but I have to run ,the town truck is going by spreading sand on it from the snow from the other day and its the only way I can put my toes in the sand like you enjoy your Island hopping on the way home...
