Fantasy of Flight Continued

Well i know I said that i was busy and didn’t have time to really go through what happened at the Precon so as promised I have gone back in and have rewritten what took place in the last post. Give it a gander it’s kind of interesting, with it that I’ll explain a little bit about what happened below us.

This movie requires Flash Player 9

One of the rare and most awesome of planes at Fantasy of Flight is the Duck. It’s a funny name to give to a plane especially after all the cool ones like Mustang, Warhawk, Tigercat, Hellcat, Flying Fortress etc. The name fits the plane though. It’s a funky looking plane. It’s basically a biplane with a big scoop on the bottom. Some of the history that i learned was that the plane can actually hold four people. One pilot, one gunner, and two in the belly of the plane supposedly for wounded. This plane was used for sea rescues for shot down pilots. Kermet decided to take it out for a little “maintenance” run and that’s what we believed. Well after like 10 mins of no passover after the last one we started wondering where he took the Duck for this maintenance run. Wouldn’t you know it he decided to take it to Sun in the Fun. There goes the Duck! O well we get to play with it again at the end of April.
