Previously: “Where’s my Mustang?”
“Wal, don’t fret too much,” Lar Farkleberry said as he joined them, “That Mustang’s gittin’ a complete overhaul—the FAA won’t certify her to fly ‘less that’s done. ‘Sides, you got a P-38 ta play with—that-there one with th’ blue stripes on th’ tail.”
“I have no back seat in my Hellcat…”
“No worries, Larry, I got a Mustang Mark II comin’ fer ya,” Lar grinned, “It will be here in a week or two, I s’pect.”
“I still wonder why we were called away from 1874?”
“I can answer that,” a voice, seemingly from thin air was heard to say…
Season Eleven—Adventure 3.5—Historic Air Force—Episode 1:
Just as our heroes turned towards the voice—three beings began to appear…
“CUJO!!!” Boomer exclaimed.
“Indeed—and I’m sure you’re just as delighted to welcome Ringo and Karma,” the Great Northern Beagamute replied, “Without their help—I would not have defeated that saber-toothed overgrown bobcat.”
“Why are we here—we hadn’t finished our assignment in 1874?” Cooper asked.
“You were essentially done with your task, and the story is resolved without your assistance being necessary—and besides, all of you are needed here—now.”
Boomer was grinning as he turned to Cujo, “I see you’ve kept abreast of my REAL WORLD activities, Beagie.”
“I have a #Facebook account, not to mention #Twitter—Have you flown in the BT-13 yet?”
“By the time this story is published, we both will know the answer.”
Laughing, Big Mac was still grinning as he turned to Boomer, “I hear you guys are all colonels—why?”
“Originally, it was called the Confederate Air Force, and all members were called colonels after the pre-Civil War Southern Colonel plantation-owners. The airplanes were all painted gray with, I believe, red trim. This was because they weren’t allowed to put military markings on the aircraft. That changed some years ago—and the name was changed to the more all-inclusive Commemorative Air Force—but they retained the colonel rank for all members.”
“If you’ll excuse me,” Cujo said, “We’ll leave you humans to get organized—but hurry—there’ll be an emergency situation coming-soon and you MUST be ready!”
And with that—Cujo, Ringo, and Karma disappeared.
