Re: B-17 Crash In Connecticut

After the crash, we started selling a Nine-O-Nine poster in our Teespring store with 100% of the profit going to the Collings Foundation. Just trying to help out how we can. Yesterday I made the donation of $220! Not bad for our small little store! It likely would have been higher but Teespring pulled the listing down for a while since we were promoting an "unverified charity". I didn't even realize they reposted it for a long while.

Thanks to all who checked out the poster and helped us raise the funds!

The FAA has absolutely dropped the hammer on Collings today, preventing them from offering any paid flights with their aircraft. The report is pretty damning and details serious failures of their safety program and maintenance.

This could spell the end of Collings and it could screw up insurance rates for other operators. Bad news all the way around.
