    I saw it fly last May at the VA Military Aircraft museum in VA Beach. Low pass 150 ft in front of me. Plane porn indeed!

    Not really hard core airplane porn, but still fun. Plus, there is a girl in it...

    Found this on Friday. A 1940 Luscombe 8B. Kind of rare. I haven't seen another in years.

    That looks absolutely fantastic...and absolutely terrifying. Does 500' from not apply to powered parachutes? Circling that cell tower seemed...less than intelligent.

    Still, looks like crazy fun. Are these things strictly a flatland toy? I'd guess that they don't climb too well and probably get thrown around greatly with the up and downdrafts caused by hills.

    None of part 91 applies (91.1 e). You see similar flying (without the motor) where there is lift around mountains.

    Part 103 is so...short. It basically says: Stay away from other planes. Stay away from congested areas. Fly during the day. Don't be an idiot.

    I could see some of his actions as violating 103.9(a), though it's entirely a judgement call.

    I've seen 'em putting along the beach. I suppose an on-shore wind would help with that.

    I'm not usually entertained much by flying buses, but that's a pretty cool little film.

    Hell, the 78 has to speed up to keep up with the looooong 73 on approach that’s hauling ass trying not to give itself a tail strike. :)
