Why woulld you say that this is not the place for this? I think that this virtual WACO is the neatest think that I have ever seen. Keep it coming.

REPROBATE!!!!!! I'll be Damned ... Actually, I had to look that word up (Doggie mentality). And hey, I got morals and God loves me... got a beer in my hand to prove it.

Just glad being a Reprobate doesn't lead to hairy palms and blindness We're on our way out for dinner... Catch you guys later. Sorry for not posting for a while, but I didn't think my humour was too much appreciated anymore.

Air Scouts and Doggie Soldiers Can't fire for effect. You guys have to bracket all your shots, and hope the third round falls into the CEP. Nice try though.

I used to be pretty good with my 300 Win Mag, could put it in the black from over 500 yards. Now I'm lucky to hit a barn with a shotgun As long as I can see to build and fly.

Hughes500E,

Hey Hughes, the orange WACO (NC 11427) that you posted as UBF-2 on page 20, I have seen elsewhere identifies as Lee Parson's 1931 Waco QCF-2 NC11427. Check out the National WACO Club http://www.nationalwacoclub.com/memb...20NC11427.html . In either case the Gulfhawk paint job is cool.

You gotta try blowin' the roof off of a Barn in rural Tennessee in the weeee hours of the mornin' with a Mighty TF 160 Chinook... Mini Guns at the ready... fancy NVG's etc.... Nah... 12GA over/under (or was it a side by side) against US... (blacked out and VERY VERY FAST) when his sleep was comprimised and it's dark out... NOT FAIR... Nice undies Stick... (Didn't mean too)...That'll wash out (maybe??)

I'm most certainly workin' my way back onto the Brotherhood S... List with worthless posts... and humourless humour... All joking aside... (for now)

Out Here, (With all due Respect Master Chief)

You have no respect for the old man, otherwise y'all wouldn't have been trying to blow the tin off'n the barn roof at that time of the morning, when all respectable folks are sound asleep. Y'all are lucky that I didn't throw a rock at you, or let the dogs out. Low as y'all were, they could have bitten the tires. Nothing as mean as a just woke-up Tennessee Coon hound, except a just woke up Tennessee wife.

If y'all were REALLY any good with that oversized lawn mower, you'd lease youreslves out to fly inverted, cutting hayfields. Change it from O.D. green to J.D. green. You could redirect those mini's and dove hunt while you're mowin' grass.

skylarkmk1--here's another picture of that QCF, or whatever it was. At least the tail # is the same

khodges -
We used to fly so low that inverted flight wasn't necessary to cut hay... wish I had a dime for every piece of fresh produce I had to pick out of my landing gear when we got back to Ft. Campbell. Very tasty corn Bill...[8D]

That's a very odd looking airplane, and what is all that white stuff?

Not much time. I check here in between snow shoveling projects. And it's still coming down.

Bill, I'd send you some snow, but it wouldn't last long down there.

I've been at work this morning, building the elevators, and would you believe, we wouldn't know what to do with the snow if we did see some. If you sent me a box of the stuff, the old lady next door (city of Leesburg's Mayor) would probably spin out and hit the mailbox. That's how well the folks down here would handle it.

Bill,

Wonderful job on your Waco. I'm pleased to see people continue to build such a fine airplane as the Waco YMF. A truley lovely biplane with beautiful lines.

Well we had another white weekend here in Omaha, at least it's not in minus double digits! I was able to spend most of the weekend in the basment (work shop) getting the servo mounts in, used some old servos (non-high torque) to set things up. I have the throttle linkage installed, rudder and elevators temporaraly mounted with linkages set up. Even the tail wheel works! Need to make the aileron linkages and mount the aileron control horns. By Golly think I am finally to the "fine sand" and start covering point.
NAH, I'm sure there is something else I forgot to do!
