First off I want to thank Ryan Keough for a very entertaining tour of the facility. I had a great time and got to see some beautiful aircraft and actual climb into several of them. It was my first time sitting in a cockpit and I really didn't want to get out of the Texan, which is a beautiful aircraft. I also got to sit in the UC-78 Bobcat for awhile. The vehicle collection is amazing and has some of the most beautiful cars I've ever seen. I also got to meet Bob Collings briefly.

All in all it was a great trip and I had a awesome time... Thanks Ryan... and thanks to the Collings Foundation.

Luckily the drool was easily cleaned up.

I was however nearly attacked by a massive and hairy beast that could not decide if I was tasty enough to drop the rubber ball it held clenched in its befanged jaws. Luckily the ball was of more interest to the heck hound and he bounded off into the distance.

Funny, I didn't see Rob there... you mean there are more than one hairy beast?
