Friday, December 25 — In at 9:25. The day dawned sunny and bright, but not white. No planes seen on the ramp until about 3 p. Worked upstairs in Process Room until 1, opened a present. Worked upstairs all day with envelopes and sorting pictures, Ate one snack leftover from Wednesday’s model club meeting, and that was it; saving myself for the late afternoon feast at home. FOUND some more coat hangars, mounted a few more models on the 1/72 shelves but didn’t touch a model in process. I had exactly the kind of day I hoped for. As I was getting ready to leave for home, I saw a Horizon man rolling the baggage cart down the hall, and that meant an AIRPLANE was arriving, the only one I would see today. Stayed a little longer and phot’d it after the pilot unloaded and headed into Springfield. While waiting, I remounted a 1/72 CH-3 from a plastic cup to heavy wire. Took three pictures of the V Bomanza through the fence and went home pretty durn hungry at 3:30 with two new aviation books II had ordered but not opened. Day rating B+.
Pictured below are the three pics I took of the 1966 Christmas Bonanza.
