“Come to fly with us”…
Thanks for this trip. Here we can appreciate the bright and wide open blisters.
I went to Geneva in 1964, when I was just a kid.

Not only was the music great but the Cat excelled herself and we didn’t seem to get too wet. A thrilling ride.

I enjoyed your movie. I shot photos of this bird in Canada August 1991 with Avalon Aviation titles. It’s great to see these old birds brought back to life. 35mm slides will be in eBay store this week. search for coldspringcharlie on eBay to see them.
