So let me get this straight, we have access to a helo? Who came up with that one?

I don't know, I think work on the helicopter is secondary to work on the WW&F Railway module of the international space station...

Jason, when I win the lottery I'll gladly finance the module. But how is this the first time I've heard of our nascent air force? I'd assume this is one of the things that I've missed since my last visit...

Dylan,
This is actually the second helicopter on the WW&F. Unfortunately, the pictures of the first "attack helicopter" which was "painted" and "labeled" in WW&F green and gold, have been deleted from the server. This 'RR track patrol' copter, like its predecessor, lives in the land of 'Whimsical Weirdness and Foolery (http://"http://forum.wwfry.org/index.php?topic=648.0").'

We'll have to find someone that will fly her upside down.  Do we have any members in Australia??

Actually, we do have a member in Victoria, Australia, and he happens to hold a pilot's license, though I don't know if he's rated on helicopters.

Rumor has it ROWMOW Manufacturing, Inc. is working on converting some surplus Russian railroad hardware to two foot gauge for the WW&F Railway space station module Jason is working on. The module is of riveted construction and will have the only coal fired boiler in orbit. Stay tuned for details on the night photo shoot at Alna Center during the launch.

And of course the manned Mars base sponsored in part by the WW&F will have a two-foot gauge railroad running around the property.

That Mars base sounds pretty neat, but I bet the Maine Central will park their Mars rover on the right of way.

No bruisin'... just a topic split.

LOL. That was funny.

Now it's all perfectly clear! The whole "Pan-Am" thing was just to cover ALL of the bases, including space!
They really don't want you guys to get to Quebec!
Isn't that a MEC paint scheme on the missile in Mr. Barry's photo?

Yes, and the B Unit is Pan AM Blue!
