Sunday, December 27 — In at 8:50, chilly, threatening rain. Surprised to find a Sabrerliner 65 perfectly parked on the ramp. Phot’d from the fence. Met a former Army pilot “Batt” Masterson who knows Mike G. and donated things to his museum. Batt flew every chopper in the Army, his dad built P-47s in Indiana and later worked at McDonnell in St. Lou in metal work. Met Sabreliner pilot and phot’d it from the ramp. Passenger arrival prevented photos of inside. Took pics of crew with AKM Sabreliner model. Pilot flew T-39s in USN. They saw the 1/72 factory-built Sabreliner on display in the WELCOME Room and wanted a picture of them holding it outside with the 65 in the bacckground. Done with all that by 10:30. Worked on models in office. . . . applied decals to a few models, worked on the B-36 and restoring a B-47 made good progress upstairs. . . .Busybusy day Went home at 9:20. Day rating: A.
