    Awesome! Was just reading that the latest expedition didn't find her plane. In a way I'm glad. Keeps the mystery alive!

    Dave W said...

    I see Google have honoured her today on their homepage...

    I love the fact that the current searches partly centre around the find of a tub of her freckle cream on a nearby island - Who'd have thought Aviators are so vain eh Eric?? LOL!!

    Bas said...

    Hey Julie!

    What Captain Eric says is probably right. It keeps the mystery alive!

    Great post dedicated to a great person! I was eager to know what was going on with that Google 'Doodle' plane.

    A small correction (maybe!?) Google reports it is 115 years ago!?

    Sadly though the first American female in space 'Sally Ride' passed away yesterday. I read a lot about her in 'Riding Rockets', the book by Mike Mullane which Captain Chris recommended.

    -

    I'll be out of view a bit for a while, it's nothing but I gotta enjoy this vacation to the fullest you know :) Plus I'll be turning 'The Big 20' (haha Cap'n) on Thursday. You're all invited!

    Take care and enjoy the upcoming hump day haha. By the way, are the Saints still playing? Don't hear you about them anymore so often!)

    Bas

    getjets said...

    OH Dave......'Dishing' it out are we........LOL
    I taught you well.........♠

    I have not heard about a jar of freckle cream.......
    now thats a bit weird.....
    Would have thought maybe 'twinkies'....they have a 'shelf life' of at least 100 years..........
    You and the Luc going Wednesday......and do the 'Quezzie's'
    tomorrow.....???
    Later Dave......♠

    getjets said...

    Hi Bas Man..........
    Yea Thanks for the correction..!!!
    I take pride in having correct information.....even if I can't 'spell' worth a sh!t!!!
    :))))
    and Yes......I know of Sally Ride......a true Woman "Pioneer"......for the
    "Jet age"..!!!!

    Yes Yes.....go enjoy your vacation.....!!!!!!
    Not to Worry.....Don't worry,I'll be polluting all the blogs....while your gone...LOL
    Have a Wonderful rest of your vacation!!!!

    About the Saints.....their 'training camp starts this week....and the first "preseason game" is.....August 5th.......
    I have a real good "Post".....for the beginning of the Season.....!!!

    Thank you for asking "Comrade"...
    and again......Go enjoy your vacation.....♥

    Yes the big '20'....
    coming Thursday.......
    So let me start.....by wishing you a Very Happy "EARLY" Birthday............♠

    Hi kids!

    The picture of Fifi (B29) brought a big smile, as I just saw that bird a few weeks ago at the Hamilton International Airshow. At home I have some pictures of it flying in formation with a B29 and a Lancaster (I'll send some pix to the lovely Miss Jules .... who knows, she may even post a couple).

    Never been to Oshkosh but would love to go. Big warbird fan here.

    Presently in Indiana on a work trip. Only 20,000 miles short of hitting Super Elite this year ... the most flying I've done in a decade. I should make SE by the end of August, and finish the year somewhere around 140,000 miles.

    Thought I might have Captain Eric on a trip to CLT a couple weeks ago, but no such luck. Maybe next time.

    Shit - now boarding! Byeeeeeeeee!

    Craig R

    getjets said...

    Hey Ritchie.........!!!!
    You saw "FiFi".......at the "Hamilton Intn'l Airshow"..........??!!

    You mean your going on 140,000 miles "THIS YEAR alone??????!!!!!!
    Damn.....!!!Thats Unbelievable!!!!!!!

    OH and where the HELL.....are my
    BAGS"......Grrrrrrrrr
    ....?????
    Grrrr....;)))
    your supposed to be stealing them for me.....Ughhh.....
    (just can't find go help anymore.....lol)

    If you ever get the Privilege to have "Cappy(Captain Eric) pilot ya....
    besides being "Awesome" beyond belief......better take plenty of pics.......maybe he'll even let ya fly "jumpseat"

    Know how "Busy" you are...
    which is an understatement......probably

    I so love when you stop by, here to say "HI".......!!!
    Safe Travel....."KIDDO".....;))
