April 4 – Cessna Cardinal, Raytheon BeechJet 400

Monday, April 4 — In at 6:55 clearing and cool. I LIKE the 7-ish arrivals, very light traffic en route. Worked on newsletter. Went upstairs to Miscellaneous Room to take pictures for the “Getting to Know Us” article and spent two hours making it truly photogenic – lots of fine tuning to near-perfection. Phot’d a beautiful Cessna Cardinal owned by a friend of Chuck M. Chatted with both gents; great guys both.  Mike L. visited with a donation of a BUNCH of World War One Aero magazines and we had a terrific discussion about him sharing more of his incredible 1/48 models here. He was leaving as a BeechJet pilot visited, he invited me to phot his bird. #273 off the Beech line. I was processing pics when the crew of a just-arrived Galaxy visited, and we had a STUPENDOUS visit. Toured the plane inside and out and they toured all of AeroKnow Museum’s five public rooms. WONDERFUL ENCOUNTER! Processed pictures the rest of the day and went home at 8:35. Day rating:  A and HOW  🙂

Pictures of the visiting Cardinal and the BeechJet are posted today. Will  post several pics of the Galaxy Wednesday.
