Hi, all

Stopped at my local hobby shop on the way home from work tonight, and got a nice surprise.  The owner introduced me to another person in the store, and it was John Penny, longtime pilot of the Reno race plane Rare Bear.  A very nice guy, no apparent ego, and quite interesting to talk with.  He had some good insights about the similarities of model aviation and the full size planes, and seemed very interested in the models.  A really nice, if all too short, time.

Support your local hobby shop, you never know what, or who, you'll run into. Smiley

John
