Everyday is an Adventure. Embrace it


And now Ladies & Gentlemen…LIFE!  Ah, life has been an adjustment lately. On Monday, Oct 31st, I woke up & got the kids ready, dropped them off for school, and came back home. I wasn’t sure what to do with myself exactly, so I hung out with my best friend.

We went to the War Bird Air Museum in Sevierville, TN.  Oh the delight! Two things I love wrapped up in a day of no stress and grand fun. This was not our first trip to the museum. We’ve been there a few times already this year.

I looked for Russ, but he wasn’t there on that day. He shared a great deal of flight stories with me on my last trip. We got to see Leroy (whom we met on a previous trip), and met a few other people we had not seen before.

After a short conversation with Leroy, we headed into the hanger. There was a new addition to the collection on display. A beautiful black replica Airwolf helicopter!! The actual helicopter used during the Airwolf show’s run time was a Bell 222 though. There are a few differences between the two birds. The Bell 222 could hold a crew of 2 (pilot & co-pilot) and seat 5-6 passengers, but the Airwolf held a crew of 2-3 (pilot, co-pilot, & weaponry position) and could seat only 1-2 passengers. The Airwolf could break Mach1, but the Bell 222 could just reach 149 mph in flight.  This was a beautiful model!

Just like every trip, I asked if I could see any birds taking off or in the air. I was told I’d just missed flight by a day. We noticed one of the two P47 thunderbolts were missing from the hanger. Also we noticed the T28 Trojan has been flown recently. So, we started asking questions about the absent P47. We found out it was in the mechanic’s hanger. Through some sweet talk pleading, we were granted access to the garage. There we met two pilots & mechanics. What a pleasure it was to speak with them!!

I was also able to get some stellar shots of the cool fire trucks too!!

It was a great day, just another everyday adventure.
