Dang. Missed a WW1 Fokker Triplane opportunity.

We were having our volunteer day at Kingsbury, Texas, working on WWI fighter planes. Had we had some warning we would have intercepted your Zep with a WWI Fokker Triplane! It was an awesome treat to see it fly over our grass airfield, it was like going back through time. A shame it could not fly over our air fair on Nov 8 as our vintage aircraft will be flying. A wonderful treat. Some pics were taken, will contact the photographers

Wow, that would have REALLY been a treat to have been met by a Fokker.
Ouch. I can't believe we missed it.

If you check out the web site, you'll see that one of my childhood
inspirations was Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome in upstate New York, which
also flies WWI aircraft.

Keep up the good work in Kingsbury!

We were in Deming last night, headed for Tucson currently.
