The ferry pilot flew it into the side of mountain while crossing the Rockies with the expected outcome for both the plane and pilot.

Are the Wacos you work on the Ride For Hire planes based out of here?

Yep, thats us. One is red white and blue and the other is blue and gray (currently under restoration).
