Re: Ton of fun at Arlington - Aircraft Factory
Sounds like you and James were having fun this weekend. Its amazing
this airplane still draws such attention with a design that is 27
years and counting.
Bob, Brad and I went to Grass Valley Nevada County Airfest this
weekend. Lots of people and military aircraft. Brad and I did a high
speed looooow pass (209K) on arrival and generated the same

after the fly-by and I wish James good luck with his Factory. I
think he made many people aware of what a wonderfull airplane the
Q2/Q200 is. Thanks James for having us in your exhibit, we had a
