The more I slog through Facebook, the more I’m inclined to shift primary focus to Abe Lincoln’s Air Force, the AeroKnow Museum blog. What I am trying today is a repeat of what I just posted at my Facebook AeroKnow Museum’s Air Show Seen photo album. Those are public pictures there, but I think you still have to sign on with Facebook. I’m sharing the pictures with minimal text in the hope that some discussion will be generated. The ultimate goal, of course, is to grow support for AeroKnow Museum.
Air show phenom Jacqueline Warda arrives in Springfield August 29 to spend a few days relaxing with friends Kim Curry and her husband.
Jacquie performs in the Extra 300 pictured here.

Jacqueline is sponsored by a major manufacturer of chronographs.
Jacqueline discusses hangaring arrangements with lineman Michael while Kim looks on.

The pilot’s panel slightly resembles a control console during a launch at Cape Canaveral; the front panel, less so.

The area forward of the wing really dominates the airplane.
If this post generates anything close to significant feedback, I will post pictures here regularly.
May the winds be kind to you, however you fly.
