FLY-OUT TO LAL
YEAR END GATHERING
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2012

We couldn't have had a better day weather-wise.  We had a nice turnout of members for our annual year end event.  The SUN 'n FUN staff and facility were outstanding.  Our guest speaker couldn't have been better.  Smokin' Joe's BBQ catered a delicious lunch of chicken and ribs.  After lunch the attendees were invited by Thom to get up close and personal with Precious Metal.  He shared experiences and answered questions and provided photo ops.  After he taxied out and took off and faded out of sight (and sound) little did we know until we heard that sensual sound of the Griffon that he was coming back around for a low pass.   The group took advantage of the invitation by SNF to explore the FL Air Museum as well as the Annex.  

Our speaker was Thom Richard, the pilot of Reno Racer Precious Metal. Precious Metal is a P-51XR which is a highly modified P-51 Mustang. Thom is the President and chief pilot for Warbird Adventures. This highly modified Mustang is based at the Kissimmee Air Museum and is part of the collection. Thom is pictured flying his reworked P-51XR Precious Metal in an article in October's Warbird Digest.

We look forward to more gatherings as we continue to expand our relationship with the SNF staff.
