That was a very nice article and I was pleasantly surprised to see it on the front page. If anyone is planning on being in Palmdale on Sunday afternoon, Tony and I will be signing copies of our book at Barnes & Noble from 1:00 to 5:00.

We did a couple of 1-hour presentations on aerospace archeology last weekend up near San Francisco at the Society for Aviation History and the Hiller Aviation Museum. We had a Powerpoint slide show and several artifacts for "show and tell." It was well received and the book has proven very popular.

I recommend the Hiller Museum very highly. They have an excellent collection that includes the world's largest "black" airplane, the Boeing Condor UAV (code name FENNEL). Some of the early helicopters, VTOL, and jet pack concepts were also fascinating.
