Re: UCAP443 - Domestic Dispute Landing

Re: Lake vs Pond conundrum.

If you can fly a Cub with floats off it: It's a Lake.

If you can fly a Lake LA4 off it: It's definitely a Lake...

Anything smaller is a Pond...especially if there's an island in the middle.

Re: Ep#333- Collisions with Animals

Back in 1971 two friends of mine were flying via Bonanza from CLT to a farm/ranch airport southeast of RDU. I refreshed my memory by looking at the accident report and it helped me recall that this occurred 11/30 at about 1815 local; a bit past sundown. The pilot was taking our friend/part-time boss...

Re: My First Purchase Experience: Lessons Learned

C5Guy, I appreciated you sharing your experiences with us. A very well organized, thought-out process on your part. I do quite a bit of business with auto dealers, and one guy told me that out of 30 buyers, 1 will take what is usually an emotional decision and turn it into a rational act. Congrats o...

Re: I bought a plane! (and you guys are to blame)

The photos you posted tell the story- it's obviously a very clean airplane. Congratulations. My neighbor (14A) recently bought a 177 and is loving it, too.

Re: Best player for Podcasts? Old Ipod caught fire...

Hey Champguy, I'm thinking about a generic player- I have one somewhere that runs off a AAA battery. I'll root around in the dresser drawer and see if it might do that- it just doesn't have alot of memory. And setting up Playlist? I've heard I could do this but since I don't have much music saved (e...

Best player for Podcasts? Old Ipod caught fire...

My no-longer-trusty Ipod 5th Gen died an ignominious and smoky death yesterday while I was travelling to Winston Salem. Riding along, I smelled printed circuit board cooking, OMG! and I started hunting around for the source....happened to look down at the Ipod and noticed the plastic faceplate begin...

Re: time lapse of a nieuport 28

Thanks for pointing out this video- I really enjoyed watching it and thinking back to my building days. Kit systems really make the scrounging necessary years ago a non-issue now. Got a kick out of seeing the crane get the fuselage out of his back yard! I've known guys that had to take out windows, ...
