  1. Took a DC-3 up there once in the 60s, chartered load of fishermen, I believe? best, randy
  2. Yeah, in the local vernacular, "Uff-Dah!" best, randy
  3. Not too sure where Avon is but I used to go down many times and see a couple of chums from the Confederate Air Force, Dudley Johnson and "Buck" Rodgers at Rolling Fork. Had a green Bell P-63 King Cobra. And used to be an Air Force base at Greenville, MS. best, randy
  4. In the days of my youth , used to stack flax straw bales for Archie-Daniels Midland at Brewster, MN. best, randy
  5. Good grief, I lose track, when I was still on active duty with the USAF I was stationed at Offutt AFB in Nebraska at one time. Can recall w-a-y up at the far end of the inactive runway 03 (nearest to Bellevue) SAC had several airplanes parked up there and recall once taking a photo while standing near one, a parked B-36. Must be that one that's now at their SAC museum since an overhead photo here on this computer doesn't show anything there. best, randy
  6. Yeah, but that effort to get a Peacemaker" restored fell apart, w-a-y bigger effort than they'd realized at the beginning. best, randy
  7. Mmmmmmmmhm, interesting, try'n to recall what we shot while qualifying with the 30 cal. and the .45s back when I went to USAF Basic and later when I was was in Aviation Cadets, mid fifties. best, randy
  8. Chuckle, prolly 250 knots indicated. best, randy
  9. Chuckle, chuckle, we used to do that a lot, I (now ) forget the name of it but we used to do it a lot trying to set off the ADIZ penetration alarms. "Terrain hugging" comes to mind. best, randy
  10. Head shakin' mode some more! ALL aircraft civil/government/whatever using the airways system have T/sponders. best, randy
  11. Head shakin' mode here, depends upon setting the transponder! best, randy
  12. Iz'zat why it seemed so dim in my past - no wonder it makes sense why now! best, randy
  13. Dunno for sure but have you looked at Mills Fleet Farm? best, randy
  14. Dimly/dimly/dimly seem to recall a couple in my youth? best, randy
  15. Yup, you're correct, I forgot to say "maintainer". But it sure was also used. Separate deal here also, can recall Hermie Stumph had a converted Farmall M that he used on our township's gravel roads. And now that I saw "Trojan", IIRC that was the name! best, randy
  16. Chuckle, , don't think so, prolly it'd just P.O. twice as many as already. best, randy
  17. Randy Sohn

    Howdy!

    Ah-so, copy-copy (sooner or later, improvements, huh?) best, randy (re the pics and plowing, must be someone else?)
  18. Randy Sohn

    Howdy!

    Never saw one that'd slide back, just flippped up on our M. best, randy
  19. Chuckle, agree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  20. Oh yup, all depends upon where/what you grew up using, I guess. IIRC, the only one's using the stuff we're used to is in the US, I believe. All else worldwide is metric in my experience. best, randy
  21. Chuckle chuckle, you made me recall the days of my youth, listening to the noontime SUX markets on WNAX (570) Yankton and about some load of "sandhills" cattle. (We fatterned steers on our farm at Lake Park, IA (near OTG - Worthington). best, randy
  22. Hoky smokes Ian, to quote some old comedian that I heard somewhere or other - "that ain't funny, McGee". best, randy (born in 1934)
  23. Yup, days gone by! Still can recall a couple of things (etched in my memory). That truckstop was on the east side of the road and many miles from getting to those Robin Hood Flour cement silos - but w-a-y, w-a-y south of Sheldon. Thinking back, also recall a small airport on the west side of the road not too far from there, college's flying club? Last time I was down there was when the Floyd river flooded, and several of us went down there to help. 1951???? 1952???? best, randy
  24. Chuckle, great and thanks! Can clearly recall the flatcars full of diagonally parked and chocked Farmall H's and M's on the Rock Island Railway's tracks coming to Les Rowe Implement Co. at Lake Park, Iowa. best, randy
