February 21 – Jabiru LSA

Sunday, February 21 — In at 9:30, sunny, cool, four birds on the ramp. Brought bananas for the first time in a few months. Decided that when I have them here, I’ll eat a banana for lunch and if I get hungry in late afternoon, I’ll have another one. After showing a NetJets Phenom 300 pilot the Welcome Room and everything upstairs over the course of 40 minutes, and having a fine chat with him, the rest of the day was singularly solitary. Worked on finances in the morning after processing a bunch of pics from yesterday and day before. Took no pics today. Upstairs all afternoon working in the Research Room and Intake Room. I’m focusing on “fine tuning” the files of US-built aircraft. Back to office about 6:20. Wrapped up a few things including another extended phone call with a lonesome, jaded friend and left for home at 7:00. Saw a Jabiru LSA perfectly parked in the ramp floods, returned to office for camera and took several pictures. Day rating B-.
Here are pics of the Jabiru last night. This morning I met the owner pilot who showed it to me inside and out. Look for  daylight pics in Tuesday morning’s blog.
