So this is pretty cool!!

As many of you know I'm getting married on the 24th of this month. We're going to Barbados for our honeymoon right after. Jamie was researching the island and looking for something aviation related for us to do (yeah she's ok!!).

She stumbled upon this http://www.barbadosconcorde.com/ which on it's own is pretty cool. But wait till you see what shares the museum with the SST.

Drum roll please ...

SO yeah that's pretty cool ... travel 2600 miles away from homebase and still have a Thorp nearby!!

This is the first plane constructed in Barbados .. not the first homebuilt .. the first AIRPLANE!

Congrats Lee.

Looks like those prop blade tips have been "cold-set"...

congrats Lee woot.

That T18 has a better spot than the one at the EAA museum. I like the logo on the cowl.
