Re: Flight Deck at KWWD

It is usually closed on weekends, but someone in our group had connections and it was opened just for us ...

Episode 371 "Gear Door Wedgie"

Hi guys! Regarding the 747 landing with one of its boggies not fully extended: The C-5 Galaxy (roughly the same size and weight of a 747) has a chart in the Flight Manual for landing with any combination of landing gear partially or fully retracted. The chart includes recommended weights (lighter is...

Re: #OSH13

I plan to attend this year. It will be my first one, and I intend to fly in and camp. Sun N Fun was a blast. I had the pleasure of meeting (and chatting) with Dave. Look forward to meeting and imbibing with the whole gang.

The German beer had to stay behind. At 36 lbs, it was too much. Time for plan B.

Re: Sun N Fun 2013

Just finalized plans to attend my first Sun N Fun! Flying my "new to me" Cardinal down from NJ on Thursday on my first ever long distance cross country. I plan to camp under the plane to get the full experience. And I'm bringing German beer. Looking forward to meeting the UCAP gang.

Re: My First Purchase Experience: Lessons Learned

Jim,

Congrats on your purchase! I looked at Grumman Tigers during my search. Neat airplane.

I completely agree with #12 of your post. The purchase process is a very thoughtful, methodical procedure. But when I open that hanger door, the response is purely emotional. Worth every penny!!!

Re: My First Purchase Experience: Lessons Learned

Larry,

I did not use an escrow service. I did consider using a "buyers agent" to arrange the purchase process, but in the end, decided to educate myself and do it own my own.

Re: Russian Jet, No Canopy, Mach 2+

I think the story is fake, but the pictures are real. Some observations: The rocket residue from the previous ejection is present on the airframe in the "preparing for flight photo". The rear seat is also missing in the "preparing for flight photo", indicating the ejection occure...

Thanks, Dave. A rational act to buy an irrational toy!
