March 30 – Gulfstream American G.II, Raytheon Hawker 800

Wednesday, March 30 — In at 6:55 with many shelf boards from the model work room at home and model kits in progress. No more modeling at home. Processed pictures from yesterday. A Gulfstream G.II with engine mods parked in light rain. Very VIP, two or three limousines gathered round. No photos until they drove away. The crew visited AKM Also a Hawker 125. Phot’d it in light rain. Processed pictures from yesterday until 11 and worked on LincFly #8 March 2016, at lunch and back to arranging kits in progress, getting ALL of them I’m not close to completing into a separate room down the hall and TRYING to lessen the clutter in the Process Room. Stopped about 6:15 to be ready for the model club meeting. It was raining outside, one member was not feeling well, so the Conference Room down the hall never had the lights turned on. I processed pictures taken this rainy day and worked on the newsletter. I will work on models after I make progress with higher priorities. The crew of a PC-12 which landed at SPI because of nasty weather in Peoria visited briefly and promised to return when the weather’s better and they’re not in a rush to get home. Spent a final half an hour or so upstairs arranging things and went home at 8:15 in light rain. Day rating: B+
Pictured are the G.II and Hawker 800 I photographed Wednesday.
