The above post resulted in several posts that had a great deal of Eagle History. The history was posted by Joe Laird.

Joe asked that I separate the history posts into another thread. That thread is:

http://www.eaglesinternational.net/foru ... f=8&t=2998

I strongly recommend that you take a look at that thread ---- great information.

Nice eagle! The decal looks even better in person... :lol: Kidding about the decal part, it really does look good though. Was nice meeting you at the rally, hope to see you again somewhere down the road.

Jim, the bus looks great and the wheels really make it stand out.

I see that you posted the picture on our website. That was a great test. I think the photo was about 2.7 meg and the photo was made into a thumbnail that fits the page very well.

Looks good Jim, but what is up with needing permission to view the photo now that was always a feature allowing visitors to view the work people did on Eagles

Clifford, that was my fault. Jim posted the photo directly to our website. That is one of our upgrades which allows folks to easily upload any size picture.

Unfortunately, I did not turn on a switch that allows guests to download files. The photo is a file on our website. I think I have it corrected now.
