Re: UCAP #93

If I remember correctly, this episode included some discussion about non-flying "acts" at airshows. I attended The Great New England Airshow at Westover ARB (Chicopee, MA) this past weekend. Les Shockley's "Shockwave" jet-powered big-rig attempted to fly after it's drogue chute d...

I don't think the article says that - only that he "stayed with (the airplane) through the night".

Re: UCAP #71 "Jeb Was Right"

If this is the building you're thinking of:

Then it's the old 1937 Terminal Building that has been preserved by the
New Hampshire Aviation Historical Society, and houses their museum. It's located just off of runway 35.

Re: UCAP #69 "A Very Floral Nose"

I'm glad someone found a reference to it - the best I could do was identify it as part of National Geographic TV's "Inside" series, but couldn't actually find anything about it on their website. I did see the show when it aired on PBS-HD. Awesome stuff in HD, unfortunately including the tr...

Re: Filing Flight Plan Fiascos

I recently saw something that came out of AOPA saying that the number of calls to the FSS problem hotline has dropped off significantly, even though the "buzz" is that there are still lots of problems. We need to call when we encounter problems with Flight Service (like the dropped call I ...

Re: User Fees

Members of my rental club routinely fly (from Massachusetts) into Maine for training and for breakfast/pleasure runs, and there has been no statement of concern from club management on this issue. As an afterthought to this statement, I should say that as renters, it's highly unlikely that we would...

Re: Is the UCAP Podcast too long ?????

Since I can always come back to it later, the length isn't a real issue for me except that I often burn an audio CD to listen during my commute to work, which is limited to 80 minutes. I don't have any mp3 interface to my truck's audio system, and I won't wear headphones while driving (because I als...

Re: User Fees

From what I've read, one of the key discriminators that determines whether Maine can attempt to tax your airplane is whether or not it was purchased within the 12-month period prior to your visit, and if it was, whether or not it was purchased in a state with no sales tax or a sales tax less than Ma...

Rocket Racing League

After listening to Episode #60 ("Rocket Fuel") the comments about the rocket-powered Long-EZ variant reminded me of something I had read recently. A quick web search helped me to recall why it all sounded so familiar... I had read an article about the Rocket Racing League in Air & Spac...
