Back in April I went to Houston for a conference and decided to rent a car and spend some time down at Ellington Field to see if I could catch NASA's WB-57F.  The first thing I saw when I got there was this F-4D on the ramp, hooked up to a start cart.  Turns out it was Collings' F-4, the one that used to be flown in the Steve Ritchie markings, making its first flight in over three years.  Ridiculous luck.  (I caught the WB-57 the next day thanks to a heads-up call from Matt).

Congrats James, awesome catch.

So Ned caught one on a Monday and you caught one on a Tuesday.  Wonder if this counts as a "Monday" since yesterday was a holiday.  I've got to catch one before they're all gone.
