Well since everyone else appears to be avoiding asking the question, I'll do it.
Will we be flying the vintage planes in the race this year?
If so, some pilots might want to get some time in them if they aren't used to flying them.
Myself, I'm okay flying the Cub, the Jenny, the DC3, the Spirit of St Louis (on a good day,) the Robinson etc.
I wouldn't want to fly the Comet or the Vickers.
Reggie, maybe the next practice should involve the vintage aircraft, maybe setting up 50 nm legs (the DC3 could probably do 100-120) and flying them in the oldies.
