Jut came home from a very rewarding day at Lelystad. All of you that weren't there, you missed something good!

Quoting Viv (Reply 14):

We noticed that in Connie's #3 engine after dark.... IIRC a boost pump failed (which worked fine during the day) once again earning her title as 'the world's best 3-engined aircraft'  Wink.

Willem,

I'm sure I speak for Kas if I say that we had a very nice day at LEY today, and if that's not enough we got a bunch of good shots as well. I'd like to thank you and your colleagues once again for everything you have done!

P.S. If one of you goes to visit Willem and his colleagues be sure to bring a straw. Chances are that either you or someone in your vicinity is going to need it  Wink.
