OK, so redneckflyer wanted to see some weird avatars, but I want you to explain your avatar. Tell me why you chose a certain pic, or what your avatar means. Some are obvious, others are not.

And, since almost all of us change our avatar from time to time, try to post your current avatar as an attachment to your reply, so that we don't get confused when you change it later.

I'll start. Mine is a GWS Cargotrans Quad, modeled after an EC-130H "Compass Call" airborne jamming platform. This particular one (tail number 1862) was one that I flew on regularly as a crewmember back in my Air Force days. Fin flash "SB" is for Sembach AB, Germany (unit is no longer there, back at Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ now).

Edit: Following Gerald's lead, a link to my build thread can be found here (http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5159).

Cool, I don't get down to the tidewater often. Usually to either Tabb or Glouscester, sometimes I still get Newport News. But those are rare for me these days. Seems that they need folks who are still willing to run North Carolina. I will, besides the miles are good.

Roanoke, Yep LOVE it Wife and I along with the young'un moved here full time in late August, from Blue Ridge, GA. Nice folks, Good roads, and hobby stores EVERYWHERE!!!

Perhaps if I get that way with a little time to kill, we can get together. I usually keep a plane in the truck. There is a heli in there now...

COOL! I used to run Kimberly Clark just south of Knoxville. I used to get in trouble with the company when I left the house, in Mineral Bluff, GA going to KC. I would run US 129 "The Dragon" Of course very early in the morning because at 75' long I took up both lanes and then some. Had to look for headlights in the trees you know, and listen for the air horns coming the other way. My gosh what a small world!

I will have to request a run to the Tabb Walmart, I am a contractor for Walmart. I can usually time these things so I run out of time when I get to my destination.

Perhaps on you next trip home we could get together, either way to K'ville goes close to Roanoke. Do you do I-64 to I-81 or 460 across the state?

Good 'ol Wally World! just a stones throw from the house. That's where the drive in theater used to be!

We do the 64 to 81 route. We've tried the NC route as well as 460 but this way seems the quickest. My wifes folks live in Corryton out in East Knoxville off Rutledge pike.

yeah small world indeed. My father was driver for many years. He used to run for the old ICCC before they went under. He is a manager in Knoxville now for a building supply place called Grey-Hodges. I took many a trip with him in the old Cabover Kenworth:D

Thanks dmmalish !
Maybe the easiest way to respond, would be simply to say that I thank God to have been so privalaged to have had a lifetime in the Airline Industry.
These days I know it is becoming harder as a career.
How fortunate was I , in the early 60's, to be privalaliged to fly with so many WW2 Captains who had flown in every theatre of war, on every type of A/C. It was almost impossible to get them to talk about it though.
I feel it was an extreme honour ... to say that in 1964, when the first B727 came to Australia , I had the absolute, probably ... life changing experience, of doing my endorsement ( as an F/O) with Captain Lew Wallick, the Boeing ( then) Chief Test Pilot of the B727 programme. Though I was to spend most of my life checking and training on several types of aeroplanes in Aus and overseas, I never again met such a natural pilot or instructor ... ever again ... even though I met some rippers !!!!
I felt very honoured once , when I went to the Boeing Factory in Seattle with a lady friend , having bought our entry tickets, was talking to one of the Boeing guys there before we started the tour, we were chattiing , and he said .... wait here I'll be back in a moment .
When he came back , he had a refund of our money for the tour and said .... Anyone who has flown with Lew Wallick is a guest here .. brings tears to my eyes still .. as I have so much respect for that man !
The rest of it ... well much the same as everyone else.... explosive engine failure from Porta Plata on a B767 and stuff we got paid to handle.
I look back with much happy memories of criss crossing the USA on the way from Europe to Miami and to LA. It was amazing to track down the East coast , and also to see Hudson bay in winter and in summer.
God speed you all
So many thanks !!! :ws:

Hi Dave !! Thanks mate for your interest . Our licences are allways vallid. But to use the licence in practise we need , a current medical certificate . For me I have had recent medical checkups that I'm told are fine ( blimey I'm now almost 69) ... but these days mate I just am happy to try to get these R/C aeroplanes under control. In a couple of days I'm going with a Flight Engineer I used to fly with , to get some tuition on a couple of trainers he has in his hanger and using his buddy box , he hopefully will keep me under controll.
Take care
all the best

What song was the band playing when that picture was taken? :)

It's been fifteen years so the best I can do is since accordion man extraordinaire, Sam Falcon, was on stage it must have been one of the Tejano tunes we rehearsed specifically for the event. Sam was not a regular member, it was a one shot deal. We also had a horn section for that show.

It's fascinating to me that in Southernmost Texas there's a subculture of really great musicians who play the dozens of little dive cantinas in the region. Sam is every bit the player that Flaco Jimenez is, but he is content to remain under the radar. Flaco gets the glory and the ink, Sam just has fun.

I have posted this before, but I will do so again. My avatar is a photo of my Dad in front of a Seversky P-35, the forerunner of the P-47. He was a flight instructor at Curtis Field in Brady, TX during the war.

My primary passion is bicycling, has been since 1972. My CB handle was The Wheelman* and has since become a nickname, a personal moniker. So when I got into model aircraft a few years ago and needed an appropriate handle for the groups I chose "fly" for this hobby, and glued it onto the first part of that moniker; the result was FlyWheel. Naturally I wanted an avatar to match, so I went looking for some sort of flying bicycle, and when I found this "Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines" style logo, I thought "perfect". It has been my avatar for every MA group I have joined.






*A wheelman is an archaic term for a bicyclist. The Olde Tyme high wheeled bikes were nicknamed "wheels", as in "I'm going to ride my wheel today".
