My virus checker has reported that web site http://airwingspotter.com/wings-over-houston-2017/ is infected with URL:Mal.

Is that correct? - if so, best avoided.

Have a friend in Florida who took his aged Dad to a show last year to see the F.100 fly. [Wings over Michigan??] He had many hours in them, but then he flew everything from the F.84G Thunderjet through to the F.100. He was over the moon seeing it. I think it was silver last year. Mr. Forrest Snr. had 26,000 hours of flight time on retirement I think the F4D was at Oshkosh two years ago, with a certain Mr. Sullenburger [of Hudson River fame] as a back seater. Sadly, Mr. S [so the story goes] blew the rear canopy away whilst taxiiing for his flight there, and that was that for that week. :@
