Sunday, December 20 — In at 8:45, cold overcast and windy. Picked up and put things away. Phot’d a visiting Hawker on the ramp in STRONG wind. The fence was trembling terribly in the wind. Scanned some pictures of past friends and posted at Fb. Received a nice e from a fellow I corresponded with in 1991. I had sent him some copies of FW-200 material for his Revell model. He discovered me searching for names he knew in Springfield.
Although I don’t photograph every photographable 172 or Archer or Centurion I see close to the fence on the flight line, unusual markings and colors get my attention. That’s why I phot’d this Cessna Centurion last August. I’ve not seen the small N numbers in some time, so it was worth the minute or so it took to get my Cyber-shot and take a few pics.
Nice fellow.Most of the afternoon was spent organizing pictures, a long process with lots of steps involved. Began to revise the several boxes of pictures 4 x 6 and smaller. Am separating foreign-built aircraft from those built in the USA: lost of removing and rearranging. Made very good progress. Worked on the 1/48 Me-262 maybe 20 minutes; better than no time at all. Went home via grocer at 8:30. Day grade: B-
