    Greetings Public Affairs!

    I would like to inform you that I was the Aircraft Commander of the C1705. Also, we landed in Bismarck, ND instead of Minot. I also have a picture of the C1705 getting sprayed with de-icing fuild. Please let me know if you would like a copy.

    By the way, if you look back through the 2007 records. I was in Ecity making a note of Sacramento Fires. PA3 Swanson has a copy.

    Hope this helps,

    Respectfully,
