    That looks like a PREMIUM trailer par Ray.
    The runway lights look great. I always preferred night landings to daytime when I was flying the old RCAF Harvards. Texans to the USAF. Now do you have ILS set up for instrument landings?

    Landing lights look great Ray. Did you get the chaser hooked up? I know that the weak point of pictures is that they just can't do animation justice. Maybe as speed and bandwidth increases video might become an option.

    When I was controling in the USN, GCA was the preffered way to land in IFR conditions.

    I couln"t find parts, but did find a unit already built. Ordered it, but has not arrived. Doubt if it would show up on film.

    Yup Ray when I was training on T33s we used GCA and it worked like a charm. I remember landing with a 50ft ceiling. I went and shook the GCA crews hands for doing such a wonderful job.
    Now that you have a Lear parked there then ILS is a requirement or whatever is used nowdays

    Yeah, the Gooney Bird would not be ILS equipped anyway. Great looking lights Ray!

    Weather watchers for them Hurry-canes and such. ;) :D

    Ray it looks like a convict must be living in that trailer park with all those cop cars. The park looks like it's progressing very nicely. Very original idea by the way, it's the first one like it I've ever seen.

    A neat trailer park Ray as long as it isn't in the path of a tornado.
    Sorry to hear your PC died. Hope it's fixed by now

    That's really nice Ray, I bet there are a few railfans living in on the left side of that trailer park, they would be able to get some good shots of the trains going by!
