Bill, reading your launch blogs is always a treat, and your humor is off the charts funny. Another well done post.

Sounds/Looks like Bill had another great day of flying.
An E12-6 in an A-20 Demon must have went really high.

We got rained out last weekend, which gave me the kick in the butt I needed to get this typed up. (Do we still say typed up?) Rain today was pretty much a fizzle, so there's a good chance I might get to B6-4 Field for an hour or so on Saturday. And yes, the Demon was impressive on the E12, but I expected the altitude to be more noticeable. I swear it looked a lot like the D12 flights back in the day.

Your middle aged eyesight compensated for the extra altitude to make it come into spec with the D12 flights.
