Hi Crew,

A reminder to all who may or may not want to be on hand in Olympia, 
Washington, USA
for my P51 Mustang fighter plane flight, 3 PM on May 27th!!!  :-) The flight 
is out of the Olympic Flight Museum.

Hey this is a 76th birthday gift of a life time dream happening!!!!!!!!! :-) 
I mean it isn't every day a guy get's to actively make it to 76, let alone 
the opportunity to fly in a WW2 fighter plane he's dreamed of doing since he 
was a kid. ;-)

Yep time flies when yer having fun using a Leica and I'll have an M7 with a 
15mm lens around my neck for the flight, as there sure isn't much to shoot 
inside a cockpit with anything longer. ;-) So this is an opportunity for a 
sort of LUG meet and greet and some action to boot! :-)

I know there are some LUG members who committed to be there, Simon Jessurun 
of Amsterdam has been trying to work around his 747 flight schedule to be 
there, as well as some from the North West US. So it could be an interesting 
gathering and celebration later. :-)

Hope to meet and hand shake a few of the crew. Like this is 2 weeks tomorrow 
mark your calendars.! :-)  "Off we go into the wild blue".... well you know 
the rest of the lines. ;-)
