Malcolm: Wizard of the Day

Chanting the magic words "Abracadabra! Please and Thank You! The check is on the way!" Malcolm, Wizard of All Wizards, is bringing the project home!

Oshkosh is right around the corner and this year marks the 75th anniversary of the Interstate Cadet. Even though ours is an orphan stepchild, one of two Cadets manufactured by CallAir, there's a new sense of purpose in finishing the project in time for the big show. I can't wait.
