Re: A Sow's Ear . . .

Cool project! You must have spent that $200K already. Speaking of which, in 1971 when you jumped from that Boeing 727, how long did it take for you to get to Alaska? Or did you go somewhere else 1st?

Welcome
Didn't I just see your rig at the Starbucks in South Anchorage? Across from Cabela's?

I have never ever jumped out of a perfectly good airplane (As far as you know -- but I was living in Longview at the time). I did, just once, head for the door of an auto-rotating CH-34 south of Chu Lai, but the door gunner gave me the look so I sat back down.

Thanks! i was just in Texas visiting cousins and hiking in Caprock Canyons and Palo Duro Canyon State Parks. Nice country up near Abilene. My mother's family was from Big Thicket country and my Dad's family was from Comanche and environs. As you no doubt recall, John Wesley Hardin had connections to both places . . .

Oh, ok, sorry. Must be that 'other' DB Cooper I'm thinking of.

Re: A Sow's Ear . . .

Count me as another vote for a build thread. Seeing someone revive an FJ like that is just as interesting as some of the awesome builds on here.
