  1. Fred Sand, back in '78 or '79 you had a DC3 at Kalispell city, and if I remember some of the cockpit markings were in Spanish. Do you know the history of that 3? I'm still working on the "Rainbow Magic" conversion, I thaven't forgotten you.

  2. I made a couple of jumps at Spaceland in 1980. My first ever Otter jump was in 933MA (I think) . I filmed my girlfriends SCR jump labor Day 1980 and on the load was a local named Kevin who jumped shoeless and was always saying "This aint no disco". Then the GF got the SCR ritual. I remember the load had about 22 jumpers and/or observers and 933MA climed like a rocket. I have never been in a Otter that performed like that one. Maybe the pilots had no regard for Metro Airlines fuel. Then I flew back to Oregon and jumped out of worn out Cessnas.
    Regards, Barney
