A Bit Toooo Breezy for me!

We have seen a very interesting aircraft around these past few days. Our good friend Ed Fisher just completed the restoration of a Breezy, and after a few practice flights, it left today for Maryland........or Delaware............or somewhere up east, depending on who is telling the story. The item in the upper left of the second photo is editorial thumb...............just in case you were wondering............

Lexington Fire Department Trains at Whiteplains

If you happened to drive by the Cook's house around 2 PM today, you saw several fire trucks that where taking part in a training exercise on how to fight a airplane fire in a hanger attached to a house. Following the training, they took a tour around Whiteplains. Thanks Steve Sanderson and Don Cook for going over the differences in fuel and electrical systems in high wing and low wing airplanes, and to all the firemen that came out. Special thanks to Battalion Chief Billy Gardner for allowing his me to train at Whiteplains. Short video below.
