Re: Intro

Most excellent, Jess.

It's funny, I still get a sorta thrill from the "sideways-look, leaving the ground" view, but never really see that since I am usually PIC (last time: back of Greg's 195, and THAT was certainly a kick).

And I like the "Danger Zone" music; over the top, and kinda funny in a screamin' 172.

And notice, front seat with Jesse: hot chica; back seat, "boyfriend," whose indequacies, including inability to pilot an airplane, are agonzingly apparent to chica caliente.

Nice. Looks like you landed a little left of centerline. Sorry, but you didn't think this crowd would neglect to grade landings when given a chance, did you.?

Actually I expected that. I landed on the centerline and started to break and turn left to make a taxiway as there was landing traffic on short final.

Re: Intro

I was getting checked out in a late model 172 with a CFI once. When we touched down I proceeded to roll out to the left side to make the turnoff at the crossing rwy (1st exit from the threshold) and the CFI made a snide comment about "I guess the centerline is for professionals" so I put it back on the centerline and rolled to the end, while the two Barons and the 210 freight haulers waited at the hold line. CFI=Clueless Flight Interruption

I always wanted to fly an airplane with 'niner' as the tail number. When I went to call up ground and looked on the panel for the tail number to see "99604" my dream came true... Niner Niner!

Probably. Seems to fly straight. So it's either a different plane or some mechanic was able to bend it back in the right shape.

I was flying to Burlington, WI the other week and talking to Cedar Rapids approach. I'm flying N9896C and it just so happens that the altimeter is 29.99. "Two niner niner niner, skylane niner six charlie" Thats a lot of niner-ing.

Tommy: I left a message.
Richard Hayden: Really, what number did you call?
Tommy: Two, four, niner, five, six, seven...
Richard Hayden: I can't hear you, you're trailing off and did I catch a niner in there? Were you calling from a walkie-talkie?
Tommy: It was a cordless.

N99999 is an Ercoupe from Maine. I really didn't think it would exist when I searched for it, but apparently someone really likes to niner.

Ya'd think the Niners are fun, but only two months into my ownership of N9794J, at my home airport with 27/9, and I can tell you that it all don't roll off the tongue when you are in the pattern to land with easterly winds....

I can take the vidoe off the camera and have it on the web within ten minutes or so. Maybe 20 minutes if I edit it and add some music.

Yes, this is the same plane as the one that impacted the ground and was totally destroyed after colliding with another plane. They simply removed the pilot's body, gathered all the tiny pieces of the plane and glued them back together. Or, the airplane registration was re-issued. Which do you think was more likely to occur?
Any good mechanic can fix this plane right!!!

Actually. Perhaps if you would have read my original post and read the NTSB report instead of just "pulling a Victor". You would notice something that I just noticed.

N99604 is the airplane I flew. Every instance in that report refers to it as N99064 except for the last three which say N99604. Which leads me to beleive that the airplane involved was N99064 and the NTSB simply made a few typos in the document.

You'd be surprised what motivated people can do as far as airplane repair. I beleive that you could simply build up another airplane if you had at least something salvageable from it along with the dataplate. I could be wrong though, because I am not an all knowing master like you. I'm not sure why you would want to do this with a 172 either..But you could.

Re: Intro

Take the 1923 FOKKER C IV A that Owls Head Transportation Museum just restored (http://www.ohtm.org/edu_col.html). As the story goes, what they got of the plane was a small part of the fuselage. Now, it's perfect and a thing of beauty.
No telling what money and the will to use it will bring.
(If I can find them, I have some pix of that FOKKER during the restoration.)
Note the sandwich board in two of the pix. That shows all that was recovered and what they had to work with. The first 7 were from the workshop during resto, the last 7 are from the floor display about 2 years later.
