The High Sky Wing has some planes coming. We are bringing the SNJ, Navion (L17), PT-19, and a few private aircraft- C45 and possibly a Swift.

If the weather cooperates, the CenTex Wing will be bringing over (a little late) a five-ship. We have to do a memorial fly-over at Boerne on the way. It's looking like the Boerne TOT will be around 1000. Should ARRIVE at Hondo between 1015 and 1030.

Five ship will be Joe Enzminger in his CJ-6A (or T-34A), Grant Lannon in Rich Ferguson's SNJ-4 "Ol' Yeller", Calvin Allen in his T-6 (Harvard) "Red Tail", and I will be flying the mighty U-11A. That's the flight to Boerne, where Terry Adams will join us in his SNJ for the fly-over before heading to Hondo.

San Marcos scrubs: P-39 (still undergoing leading edge repairs) and B-25 "Yellow Rose" (in Georgetown with engine problem)

Should not be a problem as the fast movers will not fly until 1200. Still going to have an opening ceremony at 1000 but will use P-40/T-6s or L-19s instead. Contact me as far out as possible for updates. Plan on making a couple of passes and formation break if possible.
