    Thanks for the offer but have already made flight plans and car rental. Leaving here on Thursday and returning on Sunday. I do not have a 503 yet and would be really happy to find a good deal on a 532 or 582. Always have my eyes and ears open! Kent

    Guess whats at my airport...

    Neat plane!! Mr. Rutan flew it in to my home airport in the late 90's. He was on his way to the UFO show in Roswell, New Mexico. He and his group stayed the night and then went on to Roswell. Enjoyed talking with him!! -Kent
