Based at Falcon Field (KFFZ) in Mesa, AZ.

I'll post more pictures soon.

Feel free to call, or text, me at 303-748-5570. Because of telemarketers and phone scams, please leave a message if you want me to call you back, otherwise I won't.

Dang it, Brian! You need to rearrange your priorities. That bird should be high on the list!
Sorry to see you go.

Cubes,

I agree that this bird needs to be flown. I'm just accepting the fact that I'm not up to the task of being an airplane owner.
