Day 3, Haunted Flying Tour

Day 3, Haunted Flying Tour

Kelly Jeffries is at it again, this time rapping “A Haunted Flying Dash” to the tune of the Monster Mash. 🙂   Our Haunted Flying Tour is loving Texas and all the people making us feel so welcome. The Excelsior House Hotel in Jefferson was a wonderful overnight stop for the non-campers and local volunteers could not have been kinder. They put on a beautiful early-morning spread this morning of  homemade blueberry-cream bread, pumpkin muffins, banana-nut bread, fresh fruit and more for our hungry little breakfast crowd, very much app...

Saturday. Check. Sunday. Here we come!!

Oh my, spooky things are happening leading up to the LadiesLoveTaildraggers Haunted Flying Tour. I opened the RV hangar this morning to the site of cobwebs covering the entire bird. Can you imagine how big those spiders must have been? Don’t think I want to find out!  (Ha, I know who you are and paybacks are hell!)   🙂 Today we welcomed Wendy Keenan to KMQJ, flying her Luscombe Silvaire 8E and accompanied by a lovely pair of black & white stilettos, her choice for Lady Chocks this week. It all begins tomorrow (Sunday), the LadiesLoveT... Read More »

1st Lady taildragger pilot arrives for LLT Flying Tour!

There’s no stopping us now. Sunday may be the official start of our LadiesLoveTaildraggers Haunted Flying Tour but when Hella Comat taxied up in her Pitts today at my home base, KMQJ, our Flying Tour was finally real. Months of planning now behind us, the very first lady taildragger pilot arrived in style –  in a shiny red, single seat Pitts S-1T biplane. Who knew which of us was happier, Hella flying from Waterloo-Wellington Airport in Ontario, Canada, or me, happily zooming up to greet her in the old airport golf cart?! And from K... Read More »
