Tomasina, sitting here now reading this stuff and your reply triggered some o-l-d story that Connie Edwards told me, that guy is a continuous source of jokes, my stomach ached after flying with him from laughing. Story involved an Arkansas farmer herding a bunch of hogs down the road. Problem is that right now all I can think of/remember is the punch line "So - what's time to a hog"? Duz anyone reading this remember that joke? It seemed appropos at the time since we were somewhere between Newfoundland and the Azores with the PBY at 105 knots!

best, randy

Connie's got a continous never ending series of jokes, same as some of the DC-3 captains I flew with in my early years at North Central, I'd come back off a four day trip out in the western division with my belly hurting from constantly laughing at some of those guys. His son (BTW BOTH great pilots), "Tex" though was completely serious and paid attention to everything while I was teaching him to fly the T-6 and Cat.

Prolly the thing though that absolutely sticks in my mind about that trip to England is after we'd left Lages (Terciera) coming back and, while rumbling along not very high over the water Tex spotted the island of San Miguel, ahead. So I sez "OK, Tex, I got it for a little while here" and increased to climb power. It was just barely daylight/dawn and I climbed just high enough to clear the land and flew down the main street of some little town there. Marty Caidin was sitting in the left hand observer's bubble in the rear end and right after he saw that little church's belltower go by he called me on the interphone and sez "Cripes Randy, you sure shortened up THEIR night"! Chuckle.

Good ole days!

best, randy

Hi Randy,
Thanks for typing and sharing that!
So I expect that was a –one- pass deal<g>?

Not much of a teller-of-jokes my own self (not bright enough) but –do- get, been party to, and appreciate most humor. Seen and heard a lot of really funny stuff over the years in our potentially “moment away from disaster” world of aviat’n.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

Yup Tomasina, many just don't fully realize what a major effort it is to correct whatever I'd just written (just check over there to the left and "yo conosco!)

And yes, we just "kept on'a truckin" towards the west and - eventually - Bermuda after that low pass. IIRC, that leg was the longest that I've ever flown, I think 18 1/2 or 19 hours or so. I do remember that the next night when we got close to Bermuda Connie sez to me "Ya know something Ferd, meb'be we should stay up here a little longer cuz I've always wanted to put a "1" in my logbook, 1 day that is".

best, randy

Apropos of nothing, your comment about the slow trip made me think of my son's current trip from Denver back to Boston. He is moving back here. He texted me to say that Kansas sure is flat, and that he has spent ALL day driving across the state....

Tell'im that I understand, but next time he needs to drive from LaFeria down there in the Valley up to Dalhart. Or from the "Piney Woods" out in east Texas to El Paso.

Chuckle, made me recall one quote that i got from Waylon Jennings (was from west Texas) - "Ya'know, it was so flat where I come from that if your dog ran away you could see him goin' for three days".

Hi Randy,
Speaking of Connie, does he still have that PBY Cat down in Texas? Does it get flown?
I knew he found a buyer for all those Fighter planes he had from that movie deal.

Regards,
Tom Charlton
