Hi Peggy & Tim.
Back to work in Monaco and often thinking about the good time talking with both of you about flying, about the Stearman and how it was in the ‘good old time’ of Tail Wheel Aircrafts.
Hope I can be back sometime this year and fly again with Tim. Also, thanks for the pictures, they are nice. Peggy you are a good photographer indeed!
I had the opportunity to go to Sun n’Fun museum in Lakekland and to see the 3 stearmans, 1 waco and 2 Ryan they have there. Nice. I would like to give a special Thanks to Tim who help me to understand the Stearman and how to handle a TW Vintage Aircraft and also allow me to discover Winter Haven and other airfields around. You are lucky to live is such a nice Area. Tim is actually one of the Best Instructor I had, he loves to fly the Stearman and share his passion with students.... and he provided me the TW endorsement.....
As a French famous pilot, Jean Mermoz said : ‘Le beau côté du métier de Pilote est de s’imaginer , de temps à autre, que nous vivons loin des choses d’ici bas, que notre existence est faite de suite d’aventure….’ That I would translate : ‘The nice thing of being a Pilot is to let us imagine, from time to time, that we are living far from what is happening below, that our life is made up of a succession of adventures.....’ (Like it would have been in the Forties)
See you soon in Florida,
