For Dogsbody (Chris)

This is the place to ask for ideas such as finding a flying boat themed bar or club, share good places to find flying boat memorabilia, rate flying boat-related museums/movies/sims, and otherwise talk, well...... flying boats!! Obviously politics, swearing, rants, and trolling are right out. Anyone breaking this simple rule will be warned, then banned if repeated. Now, enjoy..!!

I just couldn't resist but I'll probably get paid back later on, as brain-farts are also common with me. :D

Sorry I didn’t get back sooner, but I had ordered a book “Picking up the Pieces” by Denny McCartney, and it came in and have been busy reading it. $35.87 total from Amazon Canada. $28 something and the shipping. Very interesting book as Denny, who sadly passed away Apr., 14, 2012 at the age of 95, went around the world, but mostly northern Canada and repaired and had them flown out, if possible, or crated them and got them to a place they could be flown out. Apparently he did over 800 aircraft in his life time. The book, 255 pages, contains 30 stories out of the 800 and it’s well worth the $35., covering northern Canada.

with a uniform to wear,
a fast aeroplane to fly,
