    My friend Garry Fry (78th FG historian/author) has been supplying me with a ton of "Duxford Eagles" data and pix. This one, from the latest batch, really caught my eye.

    Anybody know how to open an .info file? I'll be able to ID the gent when I can open the accompanying ID file Garry sent me.

    Nice pic Wade. Have you tried opening it with Notepad, might work.

    If that doesn't work, Wade, send it over to me, I will see what I can do with it for you to extract the information. Neat pic, by the way!

    Thanks, fellas, but evidently there is nothing on those files ... Garry emailed me after I sent them to a guy in Australia who volunteered to open them ... Garry is sending me detailed captions for these pics via snail mail.

    Well, back to painting The Debden Kidd's runway ....
