It’s CopperState Fly-in Time!


This week is all about CopperState Fly-in. We are getting ready for Copper State Fly-in that starts Thursday and goes through Saturday at the Casa Grande Airport. 


Taxi Time

Well there was time to do some more taxi time on Ron’s Lightning…up and Back and back again.

Then the bosses got into a Lightning and took off to Casa Grande early this morning and I was standing in the dust again.  Beautiful morning and the weather is great!

This beautiful Lightning will be on display at Casa Grande and is for sale – you may not want to build your own after seeing this one.



  Dan and Gary are on their way to Casa Grande to set up and bring the bosses back.  I missed their departure, but then how exciting is it to see the van going down the runway.

IMG_2477   I will be ironing Lightning shirts today.  We all have new black ones…Greg already had a black one and blue and pink.  He likes to wear black-something about Johnny Cash and no target on my back…




We are looking forward to seeing you at Casa Grande. Below is some information about Copper State Fly-in from the website:
