Reno Oct 1999

Bob and Sue both flew to Reno (in separate planes :-).  We stopped for gas in Salt Lake 2, SaltLake2.jpg (257879 bytes)  right next to Salt Lake International.  We continued west over the Bonneville Salt Flats and wow they are huge!  Reno itself was a fun airport, they had cool signs for where airplanes can and can't go :-)

Bob took a lot of pictures of 90K and 82H on the ramp, eventually he'll get one he likes...

Finally he took some with a human too, Bill O'Brian from CAP Denver who came out with Col Bill Payne (AF, Retired) in "Bill's" CAP plane 97T, a turbo retract 182.

Here's 90K alone, and with Bob

Sue stayed there for week of training for Inland SAR (Air Force Rescue Coordination Center teaches how to manage a search for a lost airplane).  Meanwhile Bob flew on to San Jose to stay with Scott and Linda (& Brittany) to work remotely for the week.  He came back Friday, Saturday it snowed in Denver so we wandered around Reno for the day and discovered if you're not into gambling, Reno has not much else to do, and locals are NOT very polite.  Sunday we finally caravanned back home.
