Lousy photos, but proof–so THERE!

The photos from the first flight did not come out, but someone had a camera that caught the A37 in the air for the first time in decades.

    Congratulations! It’s been a long road and I’ve enjoyed hearing the stories. Now you go out and enjoy the new airplane!

    Thanks Phil. Doing some instrument work (necessary before next flight), as the AI and gyro compass went tango-uniform. But another week in the shop and it will be back to flight testing and finishing the FCFs. CJAA meeting in Feb, will see you there.

    O.K. I take back all the disparaging insults, negatory comments, and unkind descriptions of your dedication!!! I just moved my T-37 model(thanks again) to the front of my shelf. Gotta be very Proud!!! Congrats. DocB.. Tally Ho!!

    O.K. so it is an A-37 I believe that was one (T-37!!) of the unkind remarks I made years ago……My apologys docb…..

    OK Doc. Bets are off the table. The plane has flown, for real, so everyone can stop wondering if this thing was ever to fly.
    And you, YOU, should be ashamed of yourself for calling an A model a “T” model. Downright insulting.
