The yellow broadsheet, published three times a month out of Crossville, Tennessee, is the go-to paper for all things aircraft. Warning: can be habit-forming. It’s like picking up a map: you get blissfully lost in the details. Here’s a sample of the latest classifieds.
Under Help Wanted:
“Need 1 good man. Must be familiar w/Chinese MiG-17 (JJ5).” (Applicants are advised to send qualifications to a Houston, Texas address.)
“PhD, ATP, CFII, 47, blond, blue eyes, romantic, interested in traveling, gardening, cooking, looking for a marriage orientated [sic] woman 30-65.”
Under Warbirds Misc.:
“F-16 External fuel tanks and boarding ladders, good condition.”
“F-18 Fuel Wing Tip Drop Tanks, 100 available at Red Deer, Alta., Canada.”
What the –? [Scratching head] Where did they come from, and where are they going? Comments welcome.
