Lots of visitors this weekend.  Sean brought his boy Ethan by to see the car.  He was celebrating his 3rd birthday and wanted to hang out with the guys.  We wasted no time and sent Ethan in to check the flame holders on the J-79.  Inspiring minds…that what we do!

Cale from Microsoft was in town on business and stopped by to see the Eagle.  Cale has been instrumental with integrating the Eagle with the Microsoft Cloud.

The original Burien Boys stopped by again.  This time they brought Alan Falcone with them.  Alan, Steve Nolan and Dick St John are old drag racing buddies of Keith’s.   Steve is taking delivery of a brand new East Texas Race Car later this month to compete in Super Stock.

Steve Green came down to the Eagle Hangar today.  Steve owns one of the finest machine shops in the world: Eagle Machine Inc.  He has done extensive work on the Eagle.  He caters to all industries, including submersibles and telescopes located all over the world. He has done precision work on the Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea Hawaii, and other observatories around the world.  Steve is one of the owners of the North American Eagle™ and is in the prestigious 200 mph club at Bonneville Salt Flats.
