*** W1QWT goes to Dayton 2004***

KC1HO picked up NS1N, W1BT, K1CWS myself , and K1WCC at 3:45 AM Thursday morning. At the airport we met WA1YKF and we met our 6 AM Northwest Airlines flight to Detroit. At Detroit we changed to a little puddle jumper airplane to Dayton. However we had to get off the plane for an hour while they changed the tires. At Dayton we got our nice Lincoln Hertz rental and drove to the Wright Patterson Air Force Base Museum.
