Nearly Happy Birthday..

Eureka will be two tomorrow! It was a very cold and gray day when she finally took to the air.

Scroll back over the May 2008 archive to see what was happening back then. Boy, we've all come a long way together!

Mural in Lompoc

Seen by our ground crew while passing thru Lompoc on their way to Long Beach.

I think they need to update the "now" side of the mural to include Eureka!
