T-34 Pilot

There are a lot of warbirds that we could be flying but many of us have chosen the T-34 Mentor as our favorite aircraft. That sentiment is also shared by our wives and significant others. The text on the picture reads, “If you’re sleeping with a T-34 pilot, raise your glass! If you’re not, raise your standards!” Susan and John Rippinger approve of this ad!T34 Pilot.jpg

Three New Acts for Syracuse Air Show Following Blue Angels Cancelation

Three New Acts for Syracuse Air Show Following Blue Angels Cancellation <img src=”″/>

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Three new teams have been added to the lineup for this weekend’s Syracuse International Airshow.

This following the news that the Blue Angels will not be on hand due to a crash that cost a Navy pilot his life.

Capt. Jeff Kuss was killed last week when his plane went down during a practice flight near Nashville, Tennessee.

His team was scheduled to perform at Syracuse Hancock Airport this Saturday and Sunday in front of some 40,000 people.

In the past week, organizers say they have heard from teams across the country, and agreed to bring in three teams to perform.

They include the F/A-18F Super Hornet Tactical Demonstration Team, the Sea Harrier FA-2 and L-39 and the Lima Lima Flight Team.

Gates open to the show at 9 a.m. and the event runs until 5 p.m.

Adults tickets in advance are $15, for children, it is $10.

Tickets will also be available to purchase at the gate

Dick Tracy

Here is a cartoon from our friend Dick Locher at the Chicago Tribune that was published about 15 years ago. It shows Dick Tracy requesting help from Lima Lima. We are not only ready to lend a hand to Dick Tracy but to any airshow promoter in the country. Give us a call to see if we are available for your airshow.tracy
