    Interesting story about the B-58.
    Because of weight and balance issues with the aircraft, under certain conditions, a 150 (?) lb weight had to be hoisted into the nose when the plane was parked.
    Without it the plane would tip back and cause serious damage to the aft end of the plane.
    A young airman noticed a B-58 was starting to tip back because they had forgotten to hang the weight on the plane. He jumped up and grabbed the pitot on the nose and hung on for dear life until they could get the weight installed.
    He received a commendation for his actions.
    I worked for him my last 10 years at IBM. He had a picture of the incident on the wall in his office.

    Very cool... B-47, C-97, etc... But man, I hate to see historic aircraft parked outside. :(

    Pearl Harbor. I did the whole Arizona thing the first time I went in 03, but the aviation museum didn’t exist yet. I somehow missed it on my last 2 trips, and made a point to see it this time. There’s not all that much on display, compared to the major museums, but it’s neat nonetheless. The unrestored B-17 was really cool

    Caught a quick peek at the P51 Quick Silver while at Ocean City MD. I believe the plane was in town due to the air show a few days prior.

    Has the "whole Arizona thing" re-opened? When I was in Maui last fall it was closed for extensive renovation. A disappointment for sure!

    TN Pilots FB group told me that Jackson Co 1A7 is the bomb was the bomb of bombs. So I checked it out today. It’s awesome. I have a departure video I’ll try and get uploaded.

    Thanks for the idea...

    Never heard of 1A7, but it’s not terribly far from here. Looks like a good XC destination for me. Anything there? Restaurant?

    Yeah. Looks like some beautiful scenery, but not much there according to my Google-fu.

    There is zippo... Notta.... but an awesome backwood remote airport. Grass is waist high with chiggers. An ole porta baking in the sun. The RWY sits right up against the ridge. When I approached I couldn't see the field until I was on top of those hills you see behind my plane. It's a tight pattern. There is some stuff on You Tube I think of the place

    Well, there goes that idea. I thought that place looked nice to throw the tent in and camp overnight on the river. But chiggers...

Lost 20lbs about removing all the old upholstery n crap. Next to go once she’s back together is the horsehair stuffed seat cushions- ordered the foam and airetex material to sew her new seats- going to be charcoal grey. This turned out to be quite the undertaking- more glue cleaning and prep than I realized...

    Yea I miss the old smell, the new seats and new seat foam really gunna do that.... I think I might have to put a rag with old oil and one with 100LL on it in a bucket and set it inside till it smells right again! Lol.

    Painted some pieces red tonight, going to redo tomorrow they turned out “too red” I was hoping for a more burnt red, kinda like what’s on my yoke, as I want to paint instrument cover with it, but this particular red is too fire engine like.. :( makes the Johnson bar look like a “pull in case of emergency” type unit!

    Sometimes. Not on this flight.
    The plane was in" airshow" configuration. I was out tightening up some maneuvers for the Rhinebeck show in September.

    It was last year around KMSV in the am. I could look in my log to find the date. Stood out- I was under hood and my CFI spotted a cub above us that didn’t show up on the box. Was a good lesson about always scanning. Did an approach there that was fogged in with no chance of success. Was a glass like day. I might have a pic somewhere.

    We spent some days in Talkeetna, Alaska for a bush flying training at Alaska Floats & Skis. We loved it and met several times in unique locations! We landed on a sandbar, on a mountain top and on a highway!

    Both planes on the sandbar:

    Gotta have some non flying fun too! Pulling kids in tubes is literally just as fun as flying for me- it never gets old to me, and listening to that throaty 6 cylinder Mercury is a joy too...
