"How To Make The Best Use Of Your Time...If You Know How To Draw!"

A Bombardier CL-415 ( Superscooper ) 

Tanker #240 seated from runway at the Van Nuys Airport.
Sitting here with my first cup of weak coffee trying to make the best use of every SoCal hour. Yesterday, arriving a hour too soon to meet with an aviation buddy of mine for lunch, I sat in the car and sketched... what else, but an airplane!
Whenever I return to LA, I always try to make time to have lunch with my ASAA, SILA and AFAPO friend and part-time confidant ( of sorts! ) Mike Machat. We both enjoy eating at the 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant overlooking the Van Nuys airport runway and talking about old times and new projects while we keep an ear open for the sound of a big radial engine.

I was so tempted to Photoshop color it that big, bright, yellow against a beautifully blue California sky!
