Sammy mason was a stunt pilot and and a committed follower of jesus christ and he would teach people to fly out at the santa paula. Airport one day a man came to him and said he wanted to learn to fly. This man had bought an antique steverman by plane. And it turns out that this man's name was steve mcqueen and at that point steve mcqueen was the number one movie star in the world and he had conquered auto racing and motocross and now he wanted to learn how to fly and it also turns out that steve had been searching for his entire life for the meaning and purpose of life. He was raised by an alcoholic mother. That had little to no time for him. He also never knew his biological father. He spent time at chino boys republic because his mother wanted nothing to do with me live crazy life. He ascended to the top of the hill and the world of hollywood was making millions of dollars in that everything perks kid one but there was a big hole in this heart and it just came at the time when he wanted to learn how to fight so he's been out in the cockpit with semi mason. Semi mason was a men's man kind of assault of the earth guy and stephen mired him and does steve. Sme what is your secret. you're different. You seem peace and sammy told steve about his faith in. Jesus christ semi's faith was so strong. Steve actually asked. Can i go to church with you. Found that interesting now that semi invited him but seed said. Can i go to church with you. Semi agreed the ended up at the been tour and missionary church and been tura california. And the pastor there leonard dewit met and interviewed spokane preach the gospel and at the end of his services. He would invite people to christ just like we do and so after a few weeks passed here that mcqueen was coming to his church and he just told the people leave him alone. Don't bother donors autographs mcqueen came and said i wanna talk with you and they had an extended conversation which resulted in steve mcqueen committing his life to jesus christ okay so the power of one. So you've heard of stephen crane. you probably haven't heard of sammy. Your verdict billy graham. You haven't heard of henrietta. Mears doesn't matter. We all have a part to play. We all have something to do. We all have sphere of influence. And we wanna do what we can do while we can do it because you may be the only christian that some people will ever know. You're the only one and you are a representative of christ. It's been said. Christians are walking up pistols written by god and read by men. You may be the only bible some people ever read. And so i want to look now. At the power of one one man who impacted millions of people one man who do his godly life of integrity kept two. And a half million from turning to idolatry. I'm talking about moses. The man of god and you know what when moses the men of god left the scene literally all hell broke loose exodus. Thirty two one. They're waiting on moses when people saw how long have is taking moses to come back down the mountain. They gathered around aaron. Come on they said. Make us some gods who can lead us. We don't know what happened to this fellow. Moses who brought us here from the land of egypt interesting instead of recognizing it was the lord to moses who had led them out of egypt he thought it was moses himself in as soon as moses was gone they were looking for something to take his place in effect. They're saying look we. We need something we can touch. I mean moses was the guy we could grab him by the arm. We can voice our complaints to him. We could panama on the back. But he's not here so we need some tangible thing. We cannot relate to an invisible. God we need an object. We need a thing. We need something that we can look to to help us. And that's where the golden calf comes in now. We can be critical of moses but really we should not because it was his integrity and influence. That kept them from doing this. In fact moses. The men of god should be commended emulated and follow. He demonstrates the power of one. How he do it. He was a man of personal integrity. He was moses. The men of god when he's out of the picture look what happens. You know what. Aaron just did a bad job at. How did aaron even get in this position. Because moses wanted him there. When god came nimmo's and said i want you to go to the ferro and demand the release of my people moses. No way lord. I'm not a good speaker. I have a. I have a speech speech impediment. I don't wanna do this lord. I'll tell you what. I'll make you a deal. Moses said to let me bring aaron with me he is mood. he is articulate. He has the gift of gab. He can do all the talking alerts all right so he agreed. But this was not god's real plan and now when errands slept in charge he was like the worst baby sitter ever pastor greg. Laurie will have more insight from the life of moses the man of personal integrity in just a moment everybody greg laurie here inviting you to join me every weekend for what we call harvest at home. It's a church service. It's a worship service. It's a bible study and it's wherever you want it to be in your home in your car sitting on a beach walking down the street watching it on your own wherever you are. You could take it with you and be ministered to every weekend. Join us for harvest at home at harvest dot org now. Pastor gray continues. His message called the power of one available at harvest dot org. Here's moses up in the mountain and he's getting ready to return and this is what he sees exodus. Thirty two i twenty one. Moses comes down and demands. What did these people do to make you. Bring such terrible sin upon them. Hey don't be so sad. Aaron says you know how evil these people are these that make us. God's who will lead us. We don't know what happened to this. Fella moses brought us from the land of egypt so i said whoever as gold jewellery ticket off they brought it to me and i threw it into the fire. Came this cap. Yeah that's exactly how it happens. A lot he was the one that says you bring your old. He was the one that melted it. He was the one that made it into the shape of calf and he was the one that said here. Is your god israel worship. It is saying. I don't wanna they worshipping the golden calf because they keep from egypt and egypt was like idol central right so they had all these images that they worshipped and they were used to this sort of thing and so they were voted back to this and really aaron also shows the power of one but he shows the power of about example. See one man living a godly. Life had a great influence. One man living in a compromise. Life had a horrible influence. I he lies. He says well we threw it into the fire out. Came this calf. what does he think. Moses is a complete idiot. that's not even a good excuse. Was george washington. Who said quote. It's better to offer no excuse than a bad one. Aaron initiated he was responsible and that's the second thing he didn't take responsibility for his actions. It was his watch. It helped that people with this idolatry he should have stopped them called and reviews and to make matters worse he rub it in religious jargon to do away with the guilt. Look at verse five thirty two he made a proclamation instead. Tomorrow is a feast to the lord in a second a feast to the lord. You're gonna work nine eleven you're calling it a feast to the lord and then we read a verse. Six rose early offered burnt offerings and brought peace off rains. They sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play you. See what a. Contrast moses and aaron are moses set an example that people can follow. Aaron sets a bad example. Moses is known for his decisiveness conviction. And doing what is right. Aaron is known for his indecisiveness his week will and wanting to fit in. You see he didn't want to offend anyone and sometimes were afraid to make a stand because we don't want to offend well. You know i. I'm not going to stand up for that and you just kind of go along with the program. Don't do that make a stand doing this right. Not what is easy and sometimes when you do what is right. It's very hard. It's been said quote. A good leader takes people where they don't necessarily want to go but when they get there. They're glad they went like that. Statement leader takes people where they don't necessarily want to go when they get there. They're glad they went a leader. Does what is right. A man or a woman of integrity does the right thing if someone is watching or not see. When aaron was with moses he was godly in quotes. when he wasn't with moses he was pretty ungodly and he gave in and lead them in this sin. Sometimes we're the same way you know when we're around. Strong believers were strong kind've and the moment we get away from them. We just crumble. We just collapse just given hey find strong believers to be around and in time you need to be that strong believer you need to be there person in a group of people says. I don't agree with that. Because the bible says or no. I'm not gonna go along with that but this is not the right thing. You make your stand for what is right and trust me. God will bless you for that the power of one. I am only one. But i can do something what i'm gonna do. I'm gonna do that so do you can do. I mentioned semi mason earlier and he played a key role in the conversion of steve mcqueen. I don't think steve would've ever heard pastor leonard if he didn't find him and he could connect to a man that just lived it. A man that steve admired and that led him to hear the gospel and life to jesus christ look there is nothing this world that can fill a hole in your heart in your life that was designed to be filled by god and god alone. You're sort of pre wired this way and this is why everything we're looking for is found on a relationship of jesus christ and jesus came to this certainty died on the cross for our sin. He rose again from the dead now he stands at the door of each of our lives and he knocks and says a full here is voice and open the door. He'll come in. And i wondered today as we close this service. If you've ever asked jesus to come into your life you know. Maybe you're here because you came with your wife or your husband or your parents or somebody else. You don't even really want to be here that much but your year in. Here's what i'm saying. Are you ready to really come into a relationship with god. You can't live someone else's relationship with god. God is no grandchildren only sons and daughters. And the way you become a child of god is by believing the bible says for as many as received him he gave them the power to become sons of god. You have to receive him. You have to ask him to come into your life. You your own relationship with god and you can have it today and he will never let you down. He will never disappoint you. He will never abandon you. He will never leave you or forsake you. He will be there for you to help you find the meaning and purpose in life. You've been searching for and best of all give you the absolute assurance of an afterlife in heaven and all you need to do is pray and say god. I'm sorry for myself. And i want christ to come in my life or for some of you. Maybe that a fallen away you need to come back to the lord he will receive you but you must returned to him. God tests returned to be back citing children. And i will heal you in a moment. We're gonna pray. And i'm going to extend an invitation for you to us. Christ come into your life for for you to make a recommitment to jesus. That's all power heads father. Thank you for your word to us. Thank you for sending jesus to die for us than to rise again from.

"Is it? I don't know. I don't know how to describe it. It's too airplanes smashed together with a jet engine in the middle of it. So the the yak one ten is going to be out there too fuselage's two propellers single engine and one pilot, and we'll see some rolls and dives, and spins etc. In about a ten minute performance. From from Jeff in the act one ten Paul sticky. Strickland is going to be out there in the l thirty nine albatross a little bit later as well. He has been I mean, hundreds of air shows that this guy has been in and also served as an air force fighter pilot flown. The f sixteen at five and eight ten through various different squadrons throughout the United States through Europe and Korea two hundred and seventy combat hours three thousand total flight hours in that l thirty nine albatross will dance underneath him. Bill stein. Mike Whiskas, Matt Chapman, all of them are gonna be out there. And the the the thing that Matt was mentioning I think is worth revisiting is not only is this a an artistic way to use an airplane. I mean, it's. The way that they're able to fly these things and push these things to the edge of the envelope in terms of the performance of the actual aircraft itself. But the physical toll that it can take on your body as well while you're doing stuff like that. It's gotta be because you know, unlike you went through a lot and experienced this on Friday and the F sixteen. Yeah. With the Thunderbirds. But some of these small projects that are literally being twisted on an incredibly. No, they're not going as fast. But but the the spins they're tight, they're they're super fast. Yeah. The things that these things can do and for the guys to maintain their orientation while it's happening. It's just it's just beyond me that I think is goes to that physical toll that it could potentially take on somebody is that you are you have to keep your bearings about you. Because you're you know, as as wonderful as it is. And you know. Oh, you're far away from everything. Hopefully, you gotta be aware of the where the ground is in this case the ocean, you have to be aware of where the audience is you have to be aware of all of that, you know, going into this and keep your bearings about you while you're hurtling around at three hundred miles an hour spinning upside down things that would make other people toss their lunch, you're doing and keeping your bearings about Jews incredible testament to how put together these people are now, I can understand Sammy Mason who's twenty four. Right. Well, yeah. That's the thing is he's good to go. Right. And that's why you're going to see, you know, the The Thunderbird pilots are all in their twenties and thirties, it's there in tip top physical shape because the planes that they're they're in push their bodies to the absolute limit of what the human body can withstand too interesting. Now, we're literally at that point. Now, where we are we can build aircraft that that human beings can't really fly. They can do things that human beings can't just their their stronger than we the robots are coming. Greg Collier is going to be out there flying his teeth. Thirty three called the ace maker again, one of those iconic images, the iconic shapes is that t thirty three in your mentioning earlier. I don't know what to call it on the end of the wings are those. I don't know if I don't know if those are external fuel tanks on those. But it just looks like the image of. Yeah. You've seen this plane. Yeah. You totally seen this plane. You've seen it in. If if nowhere else you've seen it in your favorite black and white nineteen fifties sci-fi movie when the air force gets called out to address the issue there. Thirty three. Is some of the performers that are going to be out here later on this afternoon as the great Pacific airshow get started up towards the bottom of the hour. We're gonna turn it over to Matt jolly the PA announcer, but our friend Marc Wallengren has come over from coast one or three point five. How are you guys? How are you? Well, you know what I'm doing? Well, the traffic I was terrified about getting in. I heard, you know, parking lots and by ten thirty, and it was really actually not that bad getting in gear. I heard yesterday. There were close to a million people today, there might be as many if not more. Yeah. I can't wait to leave. You know what I'm saying? I mean, we're right here down at at the center of it all and there's a great crowd a great turnout, but it doesn't feel trout. Not at all not at all. And you know, when you talk about the center of it, anywhere near dukes. Just his these center of owning beach in all things good. Center of the universe. Exactly Huntington beach right right here last year. I actually got a chance to go on one of the the the stunt rights. I think that Tim Conway did it this year. And that. You got to do it. I did the sixteen on Friday. Oh, my God Gary sixteen I couldn't even imagine. I was in a little peashooter but doing circles and stuff like that. But just just an absolute thrill over here. How was it for you? My arm is sore from flying it, you know. The hot tub last night. Workout. That's get everything. He's going to be wearing his flight suit this next week at least giving new meaning your definition of joystick, exactly. No. It was unbelievable. I threw a video up. If people want to check it out the video is on the Gary and Shannon page. It's also on all of our social media, Facebook and Instagram and Twitter, and it's I trimmed it down to about five and a half minutes of what was an hour long flight with with Sonderbergh number eight major Brandon Felker, and he's the narrator also is the advanced pilot. So he comes out here. He'll be out here later this afternoon sort of talking people through the demonstration as they're watching it. But on again, currently this video does not have its audio. Does not have audio cockpit. Please feel free. I'm Lewis Ramos on test. Download Gary's video Najer audio. And then send it back to us. So that we can enjoy various versions and dean, Gary, I, you know, having done that last year. I mean makes me wanna learn how to fly makes me want to kind of be a part of this. And there's others in our iheart family. That are on your talent like us that have actually gone on. On and getting their pilot's license to do you guys ever think about that? When I was twelve. Thought about it. When I was twelve my my uncle had a small little Cessna that he owned and would fly back and forth. He was a member of the air force longtime as well. And he just wanted. He just kept the plane because he liked flying. And he would you know, they fly over from a couple hours drive away. We'd take him fifteen twenty minutes to fly into our little town. And we'd hop on the plane and go out over the coast or something like that. And that was the only time I was the beginning of it. That was the beginning of my love and appreciation, I guess for airplanes. But it was that went away pretty quick when I realized that there was a pretty hefty cost. Lanes do cost money. I understand. I just don't think it's one of those things that I can give enough time to to get good at it. And that's the only thing that scares me about the small independent aircraft is right. I just barely passed. Mike, my my certification. And now I'm up there and I run into trouble. And most of the time when we hear there's been a crash or an issue with some small Cessna somewhere. Yeah. Right. Right. Right. Where where a relatively inexperienced pilot has had to deal with something unexpected. And that would be me, right. Exactly. Just your luck. Do you? Remember the first time you flew. I. If they weren't even calling John Wayne airport. I was on. I was a cub scout. And there was an air show at what is now the John Wayne airport. There were no commercial jets flying in there. But they charged you eleven cents a pound for whatever, you Wade. And you went up in a biplane for the first time I ever flew. I was ten eleven years old. And you know, my mom put this leather helmet on me and said have fun. And I I think now about that plane that I got in. And it just amazes me. My my mom must have not wanted to be around I survived. I think unfortunately for her. But what a what a thrill to just be in any kind of you know plane, especially where it's not open your flown in an open cockpit. No the closest I got was an F sixteen. I don't know if that's not on Friday. When I was a kid my family had relative. We had relatives who lived in Oregon on a farm, and we got hooked up with their crop duster. And so you talk about the opposite of Gary's experience where you're everything you said everything is so regulated ceremonial. And this was you remember the guy in independence day? Yeah. Randy Quaid Randy Quaid's that was pretty much the guy who I me on my first flight he was kind of like what's your name again? All right. And you know, we were literally taxiing down the dirt pad when he said, oh, yeah. There's a seat belt there. You know? So I was not getting a seat belt or was it just a role open something that was not really attached to anybody. It was kind of. It was not a confidence inspiring experience. Crofters those those pilots are insane. Yeah. In a wonderful way. I mean, the extremely low flying speeds and carrying the liquid. I think that'd be a great experience failed amazing to have that happen. And just be completely exposed to the elements at the same time that was a whole, including all decide. That was my favorite part really when we slow down after a crop and a little of it fogged back onto the plane with us. So so great, I didn't I wouldn't say that, you know, you're not outside biplane style crop duster style with an f sixteen but the canopy I mean, it's a bubble canopy, and you can see in the video that I posted that you are it's an unbelievable view of Los Angeles. I mean, you think about how all of us have flown into LAX Burbank, Ontario. John, Wayne, whatever it is. But when you're in at seven thirty seven you're in a DC ten you're only looking out a tiny little window that's ten inches wide eighteen inches tall. You only have that small view. It's still a neat view. But when you are above the LA basin, and you can see everything I mean, the window itself probably came to about halfway down my shoulder, halfway down my upper arm from. They're all everything is visible. I mean, beautiful blue sky on Friday. It was an incredible view. You could see a Catalina. I don't think we ever lost sight of cattle. It was just amazing. And I didn't hear you describe it earlier. But I mean were you doing any loops rolls stuff? Like that. I was I. Exactly because here's where we're at now. I'm just coming to realize this from now on none of us have airplane stories that count. That's. At this point. Dusting store. Exactly. And he's like, well, you know, we weren't open to the air. But yeah, you know, when you're in an f sixteen game, right, right? Right. Right. Right. Right. The canopy the view you've got. But if your copilot was any good, he would have done everything he could to get you. Did he said he wouldn't intentionally trying to get me to pass out because that you know, PR wise, they want to make sure that I have a good time. So that I can talk about the air force in the Thunderbirds in the fifty seven th fighter squadron, etc. But there were definitely opportunities for me to pass out. Absolute sensation that comes. Right. Oh, absolutely. And I've I've passed out before never in know an airplane, but I've passed out before. So I know the sensation of sort of losing that your peripheral vision, and it goes down to that one little point of light. And then you're out light ones right down the street and again through by the way. Everybody's passed out there. I think at least once, but yeah, we did everything we did the barrel rolls. We did the aileron rolls. We did the loops the low g loop the hygiene loop. We did a maximum g turn which exerted nine times the force of gravity on my body. That was that was disconcerting to say the least. And it was a pressure. That is almost indescribable in terms of what it's doing to you the wants to suck the blood out of your head and send it to the bottom. And that's when your lights go out, but they teach you different different ways to overcome the effects, or at least try to temporarily the blood the blood in your head. So that the lights don't go out because you're no good back there, if you know if you can't control your body now. Thunderbirds flying today. They are flying. They will be one of the last things that you see today because I know that they were starting about eleven thirty until about four fifteen so where can I get a schedule of events. Well, that's a great question. I'll give you mine if you're interested, but the then doesn't necessarily I will be talking into dukes on occasion, you will. And I don't wanna miss the good stuff. You will not miss a moment because they do a great job of making sure that every place up and down the BT, your has a has access to the public address system in MAC jolly is going to take everybody through each of the things introduce all of the different players described the airplanes, describe what they're doing etc. But I think the thing to remember we talked with jolly about it. We've talked with some of the other pilots.

We tell the story of these airplanes from the greatest generation we're talking about the c forty seven the sky trade now coveted from the right? These particular craft their flow today, not to glorify war. But so we can all stand upon the shoulders. The greatest generation that truly saved the world back there. The Lyon air museum. We're here to talk about it. Just down the street. Tell everybody your Dave you're up here from the lion museum. And they can all hear you. I think on one of these microphones. Yeah. How you doing there, man? I'm thinking well glad to have you here. Tell about your airplane. You always wonderful to see willa dean. At the air show here for the great civic air.

And then then it went to the French later to the Israelis and back into the United States for civilian life. And now it is it Lyon air museum and flown regularly. Just down the road from us there at the Orange County area right at the John Wayne airport. They're a great place to see and learn and tell you if you have a young person here today, go back home. Dig out the scrapbooks and tell them about their grandfather. Maybe they're great grandfather. Or maybe their grandmother,.

"Era. Pitts s one this is a small airplane folks to wings, not one but two two wings, very small very confined space. Not a very big engine. But Sammy Mason. Sammy Mason than the the pilot that you are about to see is becoming an all-star along the air show circuit. I'm not kidding. This kid is good started flying a longtime back.

As it comes in. We're going to watch year now and see for Sammy Mason. He's coming up. Again. We're waiting on the traffic here to clear at the big airport. I understand Sammy is now airborne and this young man is really going to put on an outstanding show. I've heard from the best literally the best aerobatic vile in the world. Who told me Sammy was an outstanding pilot looking forward to watching this. We're going to see again, putting this into perspective a vintage aerobatic airplane. Vintage aerobatic point of the nineteen seventies. Almost forty something years older, right at forty years old, this particular aircraft, and this kid is is just an outstanding performer, and he is ready to fly for you right here in Huntington beach. He's coming in here in a few seconds. You'll see the little biplane. And as he makes his way over here. We're gonna listen for Sammy Mason.

The Mason family had familiar family up there at the well in the in the aircraft world for that matter, a whole flying family and Sammy is here to give it straight his talents are very young pilot in his twenties. Again, if you don't think you can do this young folks watch this because Sammy Mason is living proof if you work hard, you can also do things just like this. It's a little pits s one again a tiny little by plane it would fit on your dining room table. I'm not kidding you. You have a the wingspan on. This thing is is just minute. It would certainly fit on a on a regular road within the lane and have room to spare very very tiny wings. One on the top one on the bottom. And then a tiny cockpit. It was designed by Curtis Pitts to be a competitive aircraft won the Arabic seen back in the seventies today, though, this particular airplane, well, it only measures up when the pilot is as talented as Sammy Mason because it's very difficult to fly this plane competitively with modern aerobatics machines like the IMAX s the edge by forty and the extra three thirty. We saw flying earlier today. But Sammy Mason he likes to do it. He straps this little pits on and if you haven't seen him on YouTube or Instagram or some of the other social media sites. Check him out. It's says Sammy Mason is the guy's name. Sammy Mason one of the young pilots here from California. And I'm telling you if you look up there.

"Collier displays it. Unlike anyone else in the business today watch these gigantic loop city does in the sky about four to five times his normal body weight. Greg somewhere in the neighborhood of six hundred pounds as he pulls down here on the bottom of this big figurative, Cuban eight in the sky. A little note for those of you out here on a Friday. That means you're absolute airshow pants watch the turnaround maneuvers. Would you see vintage jet routines? A lot of times. Takes the guy forever to turn the thing around not Greg Collier. He's an ironman competitor guy rides a bicycle everywhere. He goes he's a runner. He's a swimmer incredibly fit he'll pull sixteenths on these turnarounds. Folks. Greg collier. They oh so slow roll. They're doing a great job. Thereby Greg call your what a fun guy to watch. Fly a slow roll a hard thing to do. But he makes it look easy. A slow roll is is so difficult for those of you know, about it. You can help explain to the people decide you that might not. But it's really is difficult to do you have to use a lot of finesse as you pull the control stick over the airplane wants to just dart down toward the ground. You have to use the rudder pedals there to help keep the nose straight. Then you gotta use the elevator to help keep it for diving towards the dirt. When you get upside down everything has to work together to do that maneuver Greg makes it look so easy going to show. You a few little duster turns out here similar to what a crop duster would do this particular maneuver was actually a training maneuvers that taught pilots have keeping everything coordinated. So it's using those skills that he just demonstrated in the slow roll to make this big sort of lazy looking eight in the sky, a really fun maneuver the fly, and we did Greg call your you could do it without even thinking about it. But it really displays the t thirty three. Well, watch on the right side is going to give you a look here. He comes and he's gonna pull gently right over the top of the pier. Veer out behind us. Just a little bit. Now, he's rapid rally that. Again, the right side of this big lazy eight in the sky. It's all the slow roll here. Cubs. Another series of goal. Speed aileron rolls. Now going to hold it back. It is really suck. It around watch. This term. Now, the speaker Greg Collier want to remind you that this airplane is just a prop really pretending the larger story the story of the men the trade in these jets bravely flying off into the face of danger in places like Korea, of course, where the f eighty served also than Vietnam the t thirty three wiz the backbone of draining your United States Air Force for at number number of years. Lot of pilots. They absolutely love the t bird. You could see why they call it. The shooting star watched this turnaround here you see the profile right there against the Huntington beach sky. It looks like a star the shooting star got its name from its shape. Greg call your keeps this jet flying today. As a fitting tribute to all of the brave airman. The train to fly fight win in this barrier. Craft now, watch them on this minimum radius. Turn here. Just to the left or show sitters. He hauls back all the way to about six and a half times as normal body weight six Gs folks in this turnaround he's going around right now. This was your grandmother in the seat her false teeth would have bardy fall it out. She's just holding on for all she's got at this point watcher. She pulls back around on the left side here. She's coming back now for the right, Greg. Collier course trains for this kind of stuff day in and day out competition. Cyclist an ironman competitor is even raced one race in particular with a former Thunderbird. Greg though, a lot older. The most of the guys will the team trains hard to fly this. Well, he's doing an outstanding job today in the t thirty three. Coming back in now from show. Right. Look at this. This is going to be the past here. I watch them on this hesitation roll. Dividing it into four. They all have seen Greg. Call your fly. I want you to take it home with you tonight. When she grab that camera. Grab your phone grab whatever you've got out there. You're polaroid. I don't care take a picture with Greg comes by. Because not only as Greg float a great demonstration for you today and a vintage jet fighter.
