S12PPL..well as I said things could change. My Buddy in SEA just e-mailed me and sure enough its been bumped to 100p (pst) ready time. This will probably change the rotation from what I posted. I will not be able to post the rotation after this afternoon since i'll be off the next 3 days. Let you know after that. Good luck spotting it!

EA, could you check for me Friday night what the likely rotation will be for the bird? If by then it isn't looking like she'll be making a visit to PDX, I won't make the trip, I'm gonna have a 13 year old with me who isn't the plane enthusiast I am. So, unless she'll be there, I won't drag him out there Big grin

Soaring...I'm going to give mx planning a call on Sunday and see if maybe I can make something slide. Worth a try! It should be here in the next week or 2.

The last time I'll be able to check the rotation will be Thursday afternoon - after that I'll be away from the office and won't have access to it.

We're getting mostly 400s and M80s these days, with the occasional 900 making an appearance to/from SEA. We haven't seen 73Gs here in awhile.

Good God, why? It looks horrible. Here's a photo of Gregg Saretsky holding a model of a 73G with winglets that has the Eskimo on it:



I think the stripes look FAR better, IMHO.

I gotta admit Chester would look better that Saretsky...The eskimo on the inside of the winglet would look awesome. By the way we got the new data on the 700's with winglets and the new data is amazing!
