    Awesome I will deffinatly be there! I will drive down to Freiburg. I have family that lives in Freiburg anyhow.

    I will be there deffinatly because I going to take a 45 minute flight in the Ju-52! That would be awesome to fly in the Tante Ju! The flight is a bit expensive at 159 Euros but for a piece of history I do not mind. Besides the cost goes to keeping the aging aircraft in the air and that for me is worth it!

    I will if I am not in Iraq at that time.

    I really dont want to go back there, but a very high six figure paycheck is very tempting....

    That decision is up to you and your wife, but remember that there is a good reason why the pay is so high.

    I know, I was allready there. It will most likely turn out to be one of those things whre in the end I dont take the job but I still like to think about building my house and buying my land and paying for it in cash and not having any payments to make.

    I hear you and I know it is tempting. I almost did a similar thing when I got out of the air force, great paying job in a crappy location. I thought a while about it. Even though I was single and really had no one counting on me, I opted not to do it. The money would have been nice, but I didn't think it was worth the cost. The nice thing about a mortgage payment is the tax writeoff.

    Like I said I probably will not take the job because I dont wish to leave my wife behind for a year again, but damn that money would be nice.

    No problem,at--www.badische zeitung.de---and---www.flugplatz freiburg.de--

    are some nice pics.

    The single acts were great,but the whole show was to little. Only about 100

    airplanes, three shops,thats it.

    We have an airfield near Lahr in a little village, they have a bigger airshow.

    So maybe the next one

    good landings

    I really wish I had gone. I would have loved to have flown in the old Tante Ju.
