As an instructor pilot in Attack Helicopters the last thing I ever wanted
to hear was ..."hey watch this"

Great Idea Chuck... for the sport to perpetuate and thrive in the future...
it is going to take some new blood so to speak... same as the Healey Club I

to come help sand this old race car....?
