Hello, old friends. I hope you’ve enjoyed this winter. Looking out the window and at the thermometer, it looks like we won’t be enjoying it much longer. I hope.

It will come with all the instruments that are currently installed and will also include the trailer that it presently is stored on. You are invited to stop by the hangar and have another look at the ship if you are interested. The club is asking $8 ..read more
