    I have hooked up a GPU to Fifi!

    The museum called asking the FBO for the usual GPU. I hopped on the tug and drove over and they were doing landing gear testing in the hangar! Got to watch the gear cycle a few times as well as jump up in the cockpit. How much of my soul would I have to give up to ride? They said that on every flight they have 3 observers on nothing but fire watch. Airshow, maintenance flight, etc. Becoming one means joining CAF and going through a training class for it. I think it was around 600 bucks but that is cheaper than it costs to fly on her at an airshow.
