Picking short straw for the twelfth year in a row, Keith was testing out his new eagle beak yellow rain gear!  Everyone this day got their chance to clean the nasty Alvord dirt off the Eagle.  After the wash, Ed hopped into the driver’s cockpit and we washed out the S&S Turbine Services engine, waking the neighbors up for blocks way.  Special thanks to Gary Lawson, Spanaway Airport manager, for lending us his facility.  When all was done we loaded the Eagle, drove three miles down the road and unloaded the Eagle for the second time.
