There's a lot here so much like the Connie, starting with the engines. I
skinned my knuckles many times wrenching on those big round Turbo-Compound
R-3350's, and in my flying years, they hauled my butt 500,000 miles or
better a year for a number of years. Watching this I hear the noise, feel
the vibration, and almost smell the smells. Nice clip. For a little icing on
the cake, I helped the owner with suggestions how to get the airplane
certificated so I have a very small amount of involvement with the plane,
and vicariously. this flight. 


In other words, this video warmed my cockles, or something like that...

To compel a man to subsidize with 
his taxes the propagation of ideas which he 
disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

Thomas Jefferson

Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But
then I repeat myself. -- Mark Twain


I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a
man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle. --
Winston Churchill
