Re: Low-Flying Plane Causes Concern At Ohio High School

A few years ago a guy took off from Florence Muni in a Lear Jet, circled the high school at 400 feet, came back down over the field and disappeared climbing out of sight.

Lost Balloon?

It has been a slow week, except for the blowing snow out of Washington, But I'd love to hear the full story and opinions about the missing barrage balloon from the airspace over our beloved capital.

Re: Boston to OSH 2015

Flying a plane you've built and care for is so special, a thrill. Turning off the runaway at Oshkosh in the plane you love is a fulfillment of so much care and dreaming.

The Year of the Weather

Safely home from Oshkosh after crossing the Rockies at 11,500 in calm cool air. Even needed the heater. Calm but hot air continued all the way to the Coast.
