If you like airshows you might want to consider the weekend show (every
weekend June-Oct that the weather allows) at Old Rhinebeck, NY. WWI and
earlier aircraft, dogfights, etc. The second oldest flying aircraft in
the world is in their collection--a 1909 Bleriot XI--and they do fly it.
Also vintage cars and motorcycles.

I've wanted to go there for years, but it's almost a 3 hour trip up there
and the traffic near the show is a nightmare. If we are going to travel that
far we would rather go to Tanglewood. On the way home on Sunday we usually
go to Lippera's in Chatham for brunch.

It was not. You have not provided any factual evidence or cited any law
to support your theory, other than to claim you know a fancy lawyer who
you refuse to name. Then you come back with foul language and name
calling.

Your belligerence indicates to me that you have nothing positive to
contribute. You are now in my kill file.

Really? Are we expected to believe bullshit advice from a "world
Famous Flight Instructor" who, on his own admission, is neither world
famous nor a flight instructor.

Sir, you are a bullshitter, and a serial bullshitter at that.

But I should thank you, because speaking to my lawyer helped me gain a
commission for a job in the City of London last night which earned me
more money for four hours' work than I usually earn in a week. ;-)
