It looks like AOPA has stepped up their "Airport Watch" to "Airport Watch You Like A Hawk."
Tony Condon snapped this photo of one our feathered aviation enthusiasts at the Ames airport. This hawk is one of a few that hang around (pardon the pun) the airport and can often be found perched atop the large windsock by runway 01/19.
Now that the Red Baron Squadron has been disbanded, we were able to snag a new employee and latest addition for our hangar. Please welcome "Travis", the new bathroom attendant for our hangar guests. Here, Jeff "Sparky" Bryant was caught while being assisted by the new attendant.
Brian was surfing on eBay the other day and came across a familiar picture on the auction block. A few years back Brian went for a late night flight with Greg Vallero in the B-25 Axis Nightmare. It was a crisp, clear night made for a smooth flight and a memorable photo op.
OK, I just read the comment posted on our 12/23/2008 posting, "Grinched." I hadn't realized there was an NTSB Report for our hangar mishap a couple weeks ago. I highly recommend reading the comment, er, I mean NTSB Report for a good chuckle!
