Are you of the more modern era that inlcude the L 188 Electra. The three 3 hole U. S. made airliners; the B-727, L-1011, DC-10. (The MD-11 came later). Join us to do some plane spotting, dinners, and some good old fashioned hanger flying. We have enough airports on the southwest coast of Florida from Tampa (TPA) down to Fort Myers (RSW). Included in between are PIE (Clearwater/Saint Petersburg, SRQ (Sarasota), PGD (Punta Gorda/Charlotte County). We can also do weekend trips to MCO (Orlando), SFM (Sanford), DAB (Daytona Beach), MLB (Melbourne, PBI (West Palm Beach), FLL (Fort Lauderdale), MIA (Miami). Check in and come aboard. Let's see what we can find.

    How about a meet up at PGD the end of the month. I know, not much traffic but we can gather, talk, and get some ideas on what we would like to do.
