April 27 – AKM visitors, Bombardier 100, Lear 45

Wednesday, April 27 — In at 6:55, much cooler than recently, very overcast, threatening rain. Worked on magazine box labels. Took one picture of a Bombardier 100 and late in the day, a few of a WalMart Lear 45.  Drove in light rain to Air Combat Museum to meet John B, an F4U fan,  and Scott from Vermont, IL and Gene their friend visiting ACM first — especially the F4U-5 with wings folded —  and then to AeroKnow. Terrific visit with Dennis L., the new A&P there. Lunch together, John B bought, and three hours touring AeroKnow Museum a TREMENDOUS visit. Departed about 5 and I processed pictures from their visit until the model club met at 6:30. A terrific day, every minute of it. Went home at 9:40. Day rating: A.

Pictured are the visitors who  toured the museum Wednesday and visitors to our fair city who remained on the ramp.
