DAGORED NEWS from http://www.dagored.org/
Dream Machines, the new owners of Dago Red, have asked pilot Dan Martin and Merlin engine builder Mike Barrow to do a “nose to tail” inspection of the aircraft. With their help and the very talented crew of Dago, various components are being repaired or replaced. There are also many “secret” improvements that should help her stay in the front of the pack at the races. In addition to all of this, there will be a new paint scheme returning Dago to the more classic look of past years. The entire crew is working extremely hard on the aircraft, with the sole goal of bringing home another unlimited gold championship trophy!

Save a life, get discounted admission to the Air Zoo from airzoo.org by jmaclean
Every two seconds someone needs a blood transfusion in the United States—Michigan hospital patients alone use 2,000 units a day. While 75 percent of the U.S. population will have received a blood transfusion by the age of 75, only five percent of the population donates. On Thursday, April 9 from 10:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. area residents can help alleviate the critical blood shortage by donating at the Air Zoo. In fact, in less than an hour, each blood donor could save as many as three lives. All blood donors must be 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health and must have a photo ID or donor card present. It is not required that blood donors pay admission to the Air Zoo to donate blood that day. As an incentive, the Air Zoo will be giving those who donate during the Air Zoo’s blood drive a coupon good for up to $10 off admission. Volunteer blood donors are the only source of blood products for hospital patients in the United States. For more information about donating blood, please visit
www.redcross.org or call 1.800.GIVE.LIFE. For more information about the Air Zoo, please call 269.382.6555.

Almost 40 Years Later The BD-5 Still Looks Hot! from Airpigz Blog by Martt Clupper
I was a solid "A-" student in my school days, and I even got accepted to Purdue in engineering (but bailed at the last minute to become an airport bum instead). But I did get one "D" in my 8th grade history class. I bring this up cuz it strikes me funny that now that I'm an old crusty adult, I'm pretty much fascinated with most all things historical…
