    how many women have you slept with?



    now I'm not saying I slept with 1000 women (I'm not saying I DIDN'T sleep with 1000), but I did have my 1000th daytime landing today. it was a nice one (landing, not evening, although it was a nice evening as well) and I almost tagged a bird on short final.

    after 1000, I have to say, I still mother effin love mother effin flying.

    I logged every minute and landing with written documentation of every maneuver and event up until the zeros wouldn't fit well in the little box at the bottom of the page.

    Then I stopped logging much other than currency and location info.

    Those zeros were cool, though!

    Did you have the same number of takeoffs?

    Now that you mention it, make that my 1000th documented landing. I probably hit 1000 a long time ago lol.

    I don't count the landings though I probably hit 1000 long ago. Just about to hit 1000 hours, though, not including PPG time. As for women, quality, not quantity.

    The perfect FTFY, given the op, would be to delete “them up”

    As much practice as I’ve had at both I think there are a fair # of ladies who’d say I’m better at flying.

    Everyone wants these to match but when they don’t it makes for an interesting story. Plus we have to define what constitutes a crash rather than a landing...

    Interesting would be the ratio of landings to time.
    I have ~400 landings in 220 hours

    I really only remember two landings out of the hundreds I’ve made.

    The first was the emergency one at CVG after the engine failed in a Cherokee over downtown Cincinnati and the other was after the “unexpected” first flight in my new ultralight during taxi testing. Both will not be forgotten.

    cheers

    I seem to recall a few times in the beginning where I performed the takeoff and the CFI performed the landing.

    Somewhere north of 4800 unless I count all of the times I bounced and came back down... that would be a lot more! I'll let you decided if I'm talking about landings or not!

    It’s in another thread someplace but to describe again......

    Coming back from French Lick Indiana to WPAFB with my very pregnant wife and my first daughter when the plane started vibrating so bad I couldn’t read the gauges. Right over downtown Cincinnati about 3000’ AGL.

    Wife asks what’s wrong? I calmly replied in somewhat higher pitch, “NOTHING!” I see CVG to my right, make a beeline for runway 18. Engine runs at idle, but anything more and it feels like it will jump out of the mounts.

    Call the tower, tell them I’m coming in with no power. Tower asks if I want to declare an emergency and I stupidly reply “No, but don’t let anybody get in the way because I cannot go around”.

    Approach is hot and high but I land easily on the 10000’ of concrete, exit and with enough power to taxi to the FBO. After collecting the family, a lineman asks me if I can move it some place down the ramp. I hand him the keys and tell him it’s his to do with as he wishes among other remarks.

    I call my brother to get a case of beer and come get us.

    Mechanics from the WPAFB Aero Club later find the engine ate a valve which bounced around the piston and exited the exhaust in many pieces including one or two thru the exhaust pipe wall. Repaired on site and I flew that plane many more times, including with the family.

    A very memorable landing.

    I'm gonna have to check when I get home. I think my landings to hours ratio may still be less than 1.


    Edit:
    1.104 landings per flight hour.

    I'm still wondering if he knows that 1 0 0 0, when written this way, implies a binary number, which equals 8.

    But I still don't believe that.

    I thought it was multiplication. 1 times 0 times 0 times 0.

    I just logged my 800th landing. I’ll post again when I have a good one.

    I'll have to look back to the thread where we discussed landings per hour, but I believe I was averaging 14 landings per hour during the time I was a full time instructor and bush pilot. Logging a few hundred touchdowns per week was not unusual.

    I have no idea how many landings I have. I do have a ballpark on how nAny hours, but that’s rounded to the nearest 2000.

    I like to land. I try to get my 3 in at least every time I fly just to push out currency but often will do 8 or 10 just for fun. I rarely fly places mostly local stuff. Hoping to do more travel soon. I checked and I average 3.4 landings per hour. :hairraise:

    1333 total landings of which 455 are tailwheel.

    As someone who flew quite a few of the ex WPAFB aero club PA28's when it renamed itself and moved to I19... Which tail was it?

    There was some form of screeching on most of them. Tires, CFI/passengers, myself, stall horn, combinations of all mentioned...

    9505J. Must have over 100 hours on that one. Flew it out of Area B where the Museum is now located. Sold out of the Aero Club long before it was disbanded and reconstituted as MacAir. Last I checked a few years ago, it was based in the Chicagoland area.

    Cheers

    1270 for me. Like you, I'll let you all know when I have a good one. There are three rules for good landings. Unfortunately, nobody can remember what they are.

    Over 6500 for me. I’m sure I don’t have the same number of takeoffs, because, as a CFI you are always demonstrating one or the other and you don’t necessarily do both. I have returned to earth as many times as I’ve left it. As they say, “We haven’t left one up there yet”. :)
