I attended the Arlington Fly-In this weekend, which was fun because I love everything about airplanes but also not so fun because like everything else, it's become just one more military recruitment venue. But what really hits my buttons are the planes from the 30’s, the barnstorming era. Those planes are just beautiful.
The Skagit Aero Education Museum had built a “barn” in order to display some small parts and such, and included was their pet project: "Help Bring Back the Bulldog - Missing Since 1932". Which was sort of strange, because I just “brought back the bulldog” last week, by rescuing Slippers, an off-leash bulldog we found wandering around the neighborhood. “Slippers” resonates the Ruby Slippers and also Cinderella, so heap big sync there.
Anyhoo, visiting an air show always reminds me of the Rocketeer. He was the guy who found the rocket pack (Graal) in the “Jenny”, strapped it on and tamed it, and saved the day. I did a crazy post about that film and how much it resonated for me here. The film even features a giant Bulldog in the form of the airport restaurant?
So yesterday I find this on my front page on Youtube:
