    Silver Argosy Part 2

    Tony Vallillo has long regaled us with his tales of airline flying. But flying the big jets was not enough; he dreamed of owning his own plane. This ultimately came about in a way that involved knowing just the right people and looking at just the right time. In part 1 the deal was made, but now he owned a plane on the wrong coast of the US that needed to be flown home, resulting in an adventure of low and slow flying.
