Mel Olson


Enclosed are the moving pictures. Between our neighbors and their trailer, Mel's pickup, help from our youngest son Jake and wife, we managed to load up and tie down on Saturday night (our 40th wedding anniversary). At 4 AM on Sunday (Mother's Day) the procession was well underway with two flag vehicles in front and two bringing up the rear. We were at the airport without incident by 5 AM. Jake and a friend of his (and me, of course) stayed and helped Mel get the plane back together and we all left Mel on his own by 8 AM. He has literally taken up residence at the airport since then and is getting very close to that first flight! Our eldest son David has a digital video camera and will film that first flight.

Our garage now has vehicles in it! What a concept!
