    It will be my first at Cable. Should be interesting. Should I say hello to Bob, the Colt driver that cut you off?

    Don't know for sure, but I think Roy Test is based out of there. He was a B-17 driver with the 8th AF. I will keep an eye out for some.

    Needs a little touch up. I'm not sure if it's a bad prep job before painting or if something happened.

    is Cable the name of the place or is there a story behind it? Cable seems like an odd place name that's all............

    Cable airport is owned and operated by the Cable family, hence the name. It is the largest family-owned and operated public-use airport in the world. You can read about their history starting here:

    Yes, that was pretty funny. When they first pulled that out, I thought "that will never fly". They proved me wrong! Although I would say that it is not something for a novice. It's pretty tail heavy. I wish they had flown that with the ugly stick plane painted up in German WWI markings. That would have been really funny.
