Thanks for the nod, Pat but I don't feel that I should have Wiggy over any of the other stellar RC guys and gals who have flown her.

And with me being back here in the states for good, I don't think I'll ever have any correspondence with Stinkweed again. I would give her a good home for sure and fly her every now and again, but there are other WG1 pilots who are more deserving than me.


Please call me John. I came up w/ Max2112 when I thought you were all internet predators after me Lucky Charms!!

Does Roger want to keep her?

It is a responsibility to keep her, that is for sure. Not everyone may be up to that task. Since the museum can't take her, then someone will need to make the decision to do that.

If you are looking for anyone to volounteer, I would. I'd work to get it in the SD Aerospace Museum.

It would be great to have Wiggy in some museum somewhere. Not that I don't feel one person should have her, but if she could be in a museum, perhaps others could visit an reminisce.

Default A group decision.

I will ship her to any destination the WG-1 Flyers agree on.

I would volunteer to keep it as well. I go to SEFF every year and it would be cool to display it there for people to see and reminisce.

Ditto here.

Hi everyone
Been too long since I was able to post due to health reasons (will explain elsewhere) & then my old computer got hacked so had to save up to buy a new one.

Hope your health is better now and glad you got a new computer. Take care of yourself.

Thanks a bunch!
This is only part of what we've had to deal with so far & it's not over with by a long shot. I'm just so Thankful for every day.
