    Had a spectacular Saturday at the Evergreen Air & Space Museum in McMinnville, OR. More pics to come from their excellent collection, but here are a few teasers. It's difficult to describe just how freakin' big the Spruce Goose is but here is a comparison shot to give you an idea. That iitty bitty plane in the lower right of the frame of the Sprice Goose Tail is a B17..... not many times can you call a B17 itty bitty......

    Thanks Papa P, all I have to say is holy hanna! I knew that thing was big, but those picks really bring it to life. I must make the trip myself just to see it in person now.

    Wow is that a real 262 or a model?
    I was truly amazed at the dedication shown by ERK's wingman.
    ERK must be an extremely inspirational leader given that his team mates follow him unto death.
