Friday, Sept 20, 2013.....approx. 10:00 am......reality sets in.....I just bought a Navion in Pennsylvania.  Now all I have to do is fly the thing all the way back to San Diego, California.

Yes!!!!! Let the adventure begin!!!  Kick the tires and light the fires, lets get this be-och in the air and see what she will do!

I've gone coast to coast on a motorcycle twice, once in a car and a dozen times in an airliner......This time, I'm doing in my own airplane.

N125AZ:

On July 7, 1944, this aircraft departed Morrison Field and followed the southern route through Brazil, then across the Atlantic to Africa where it was delivered to the 3rd Air Facility Depot. Later that fall it was picked up by the 319th Bomb Group, 437th Squadron at Serraggia Airbase, Corsica. There it was assigned Battle Number 18. The plane then proceeded to fly 15 combat missions over Italy between November 4 and December 31, 1944. The majority of the targets were railroad bridges.
