On Richard’s Crash…

We’ve been trying to find a moment in time to get this badly-neglected web site up and running again (and many thanks to Francois Dumas for keeping it alive), but with so many projects on the go, achieving that has been near-impossible. However, recent events demand that we get WhyFly…

From the Editor

Okay, folks. Don’t faint, but – yes – that is a new episode of “Those Thrilling Days of Yesteryear” you see posted here today. As I stated back on Christmas Eve – WhyFly is far from dead, and the only reason for the sudden dearth of new material was/is an…

From The Editor’s Desk

As some of you will have noticed, there appears to have been a dearth of new material during the past week.

Sincere apologies. Our I.T. Director (C.O.O. & Co-Pilot) François Dumas is on vacation in Italy, and the briefings he gave before departing don’t appear to have sunk in.

I can say this with some confidence after spending 3 hours trying to post my latest “Fearless” column and about the same time attempting to update the “Update!” box on the right.

Nevertheless:

a) François got in touch from Italy and straightened out my column. (Click on the “Columns” tab above, then slide right from “Fearless” to “Virtually Flying” {a tribute to our Flight Sim Members}.)

b) François should be back at his summer home in France Sunday evening, so we should be “returning to normal” in the early part of next week.

Meanwhile, as I have learned how to “Post,” I’ll take this opportunity to let you know what’s been recently updated, what’s about to be posted, and what’s “Coming Soon.”

Those Thrilling Days of Yesteryear (Episode 16) “The Winter Wonderland Flying Circus”

In Episode #16: Originally planned as “Enter Richard Bach,” Glenn changed the title to “The Winter Wonderland Flying Circus” for reasons which will soon become obvious. The original title will now apply to a later Episode, when Richard really did enter Glenn & Michelle’s lives in a most unusual way. But right now – let’s go Barnstorming … in the Canadian winter!
