Space Shuttle Lauched Delayed For The Fifth Time!

The space shuttle Endeavor’s launch was scrapped again today due to thunderstorms in the Kennedy Space Center area.   We have been in Florida for the past few days and this was our second attempt to view the launch.  The only video that we were able to capture was the Endeavor sitting on the launch pad.  Today’s mission was aborted 9 minutes before lift-off.

We have made use of our time in Florida by visiting Disneyworld and making new friends in the Clearwater area.  Still undecided whether we will make another attempt to view Endeavor’s launch on Wednesday evening.

Check out these photos of our trip!

Montana Diamond Aire has just completed a full conversion of a Piper Apache to Piper Geronimo.  Upgrades included a fiber-optic back-lit Geronimo instrument panel, Piper Apache Vortex Generator, custom paint aplication, and custom leather and vinyl upholstered interior.  These features are in addition to the standard Piper Apache enhancement kits. 

We currently have Piper Apache airframes available for made-to-order conversions to Piper Geronimo.  Order yours today and be in the air by early 2010.

Montana Diamond Aire now offers a factory-new Lycoming 360IO fuel-injected 200HP roller-cam equipped engine upgrade for the Piper Geronimo.  This upgrade is fully STC’d.  Test flight data for this upgrade will be posted on this blog and on www.diamondaire.com.  Please email john@diamondaire.com for pricing and more info.
