The Blue Dragon

Ron Garrison and The Blue Dragon.

This morning my wife and I went to a Flea Market at the Greater Mexico Farms Airport. Actually it is a little airport with grassy runways and a great place for small planes like this one to land. The pilot is Ron Garrison from the Berkeley Springs area of WV.

Ron used to fly this plane in air shows and it used to be painted red with orange trim, if I remember his description well. It got so that he was recognized everywhere he went so he decided to have the plane repainted and the outcome was The Blue Dragon as you see here.

And this is a great little two seater aircraft. I was tempted to ask for a ride, but I have this fear of flying you see. Ah? Well, that's another story for another time.

Anyway, I had a very interesting time talking with Ron and I sort of wish that I had asked more questions. I'm sure I could have heard some great stories. But this is why I love my world, anything can happen; even seeing a plane land at a Flea Market where one is browsing.

Ron, if you see this and want to make a comment or ask a question please do so in the comment section or you can click on My Profile and in there click on the email link to drop me a line. It certainly was great talking with you.

See, anything can happen when you are looking for it, even seeing sites like this. Thanks Ron.

Yeah, this is my world, planes and all, and you are welcome to it.
