On field landing (with one wheel missing)

My wife told me this story was on the local news, but it ain't particularly local. This video was in N. Idaho which is more distant from where I live than Montana, Wyoming, Utah Nevada or Oregon. In other words, don't know the players or the airport, but it looks like an exciting landing. http://www...

Re: Episode #265 Discussion of Grid MORA as a tool.

When I fly at night, over mountains, I track where I am with respect to the grid MORAs. If I somehow get disoriented, climbing to the safe altitude for a grid assure that I will dodge granite. Its sort of my 'out' but rather than being an airport, it is the place in the sky free and clear of danger.

Pilot safely lands in field outside of Challis Idaho

You should read the article, because it is nicely covered by the Challis Messenger with none of the usual cliche screwups. In fact, it is a pretty down home read. http://www.challismessenger.com/index.php?accnum=story-31-20110728 This was in my neighborhood and I fly over this place all the time. Th...

Re: Minam, OR (Private but all comers welcom)

It is a total gem. I swear it is the most amazing place I've been to in my plane so far (Moose Creek is pretty cool as well). Did I mention the wood heated hot tub, the great meals? They also allow under wing camping with or without the amenities if you want to go low rent. The strip is about 2100 f...
