Besides the deplorable behavior, the one thing I have trouble understanding is why does it take so long for police to arrive? I would assume MIA has officers at a major airport like this. What was the response time? I don’t recall seeing any officers in 2 of the videos. The videos were FROM the off...Jump to post
I hope to attend! I haven't been to many AI. '81 in Ft Lauderdale; '91 Orlando; '92 Orange County, CA; '97 in Colorado Springs; '14 LAX; '17 Denver. And only '81 was I a vendor...most others were just pop-ins. Looking forward to seeing some friends. Unfortunately long-time alumni Jerry Stanick won't...Jump to post

I ate in that restaurant several times as a Juni...Jump to post

I realize you're probably joking but that old 990 is out to pasture...had been out to pasture for years at that time. A few years ago I went to the ...Jump to post
It's not too difficult, but a 1/144 airliner might be a bit ambitious......, it might be necessary to print 2 sheets and layer the decals. Interesting, I never thought of layering the decals. I dont believe a 1/144 airliner is ambitious. I have done several. Wish I could post pictures, don't know h...Jump to post
Definitely strange times with Soviet-era turboprops flying around America. I remember this one time in the 90s (NOT band camp) I was out at Stapleton (DEN) and three Russian aircraft were cruising overhead at high altitude. I think it was 2x TU-95 and an IL-76. Most likely during one of their visits...Jump to post
