did a little social distancing this evening
Beautiful morning / afternoon before the crud rolls in.
Forgot to take any pictures, but I too got out for about and hour. Saw Tyan at the airport, but of course we kept our distance.
We flew to the Bahamas for a week. Long Island was great and we enjoyed our time there a lot...
Enroute to Stella Maris / Long Island
Flew yesterday to knock the rust off...a much-needed series of storms has kept me grounded.
Lake Elsinore filling back up...nice.
To help with the TP shortage, I threw a roll out of my plane and cut it with the prop three times on the way down. You know, to help distribute it. I'm a giver.
The Niagra falls of Idaho, Shoshone Falls...
Ice about to go out.
Same flight - first rain of the year and bath for the airplane.
That qualifies as a prop strike under the AD so please comply with the prop strike inspection before further flight!
Put 1.6 on the Hobbs today. Just cruising the TN River with no sense of direction. One of my favorites close to Houston Co airport. Danville Crossing area is rich in Civil War history. Flew on over to Dover Battlefield then just a short 8 miles to the house for a fly by. Flying erased everything wrong down here where we earth crawlers dwell. But for us pilots, we leave the common man on the ground.
“Friend Ship”. United’s last 747-400... such a shame.
Went for a social distancing flight this afternoon. Crossed the Mississippi, but didn't land, so do I need to quarantine?
Added 5 new airports to the logbook. Galesburg, IL has the cheapest gas around and a very sad looking abandoned control tower. When I got home I found an article saying it was closed when all the controllers were fired in the 80s, and is slated to come down this year.
Did an angel flight out of SAT and it was abnormally quite.
Some more Bahamas pictures...
Out for a walk. I'm an essential worker who lives and works here in the epicenter, so I'm out daily anyway. Social distancing of course
'USNS Comfort'... Mercy-class hospital ship.
the Concord looks tiny, but when I stood under it's wings and went on board a few years ago, it was not!
partner flew the plane to HXD today, so I thought, it’s a fine day to smoke some butts and enjoy some cold ones...
Nobody else here....
Back at the hangar
Lots of Social Distancing today at our little grass strip near Knoxville:
Burned some rust off the Sky Arrow’s cylinders a few days ago with a quick round trip to Cleveland, TN:
DAMN we’re lucky!
Was that back at willow grove?
Fitting beer for these uncertain times
For sale: 1962 Mooney M20C. Always hangared. No damage history. Paint and interior 7/10. Fresh annual with sale...
Hate to see a plane looking like that.
@eman1200 You showed your Mooney how she will end if she is not a ‘good plane’? Always sad to see a plane ending this way...
Ok. Cheating. Painting hanging in my office.
person in sight
The Grand Prismatic Spring is probably the coolest thing you can see from aloft. Always a favorite. Never seen it in winter like that - Cool!
Went out and test flew my new G5 install! Waiting on an Airgizmos mount for my iPad for a cleaner mount:

Great looking mount for the Aera 660.

Did an Angel flight from Houston to small airport in Arkansas yesterday....a tough flight. We got him home but only because of the work Dr. Bruce put in last year for me.
Every time I fly I say a prayer for Dr. B.
Couple shots flying back home in central Texas.
Hopefully a once-in-a-lifetime view.
Beautiful Phantom! You cheater
That was probably my favorite plane when I was a kid. I thought the wings and tail section design was so cool looking (still do).
When I saw these beauties, I knew they would make an awesome addition to my flightsim man cave
RTB with my wingman after a successful mission
Did a bit of extreme social distancing with a friend yesterday... @Mtns2Skies was there too, until I showed up! So I had to wave to @Mtns2Skies with a low approach in front of his hangar.
Did a quick round trip to Gatlinburg, TN with one touch and go there.
Flew over KTYS at 5,500’. Apparently lots of out-of-service planes parked on the closed runway there:
After the touch and go at Gatlinburg, flew over Dollywood. Sad to see it completely empty on a beautiful spring Saturday when it would normally be packed:
Karen thinks our FlightAware track - which truncated our touch and go at Gatlinburg - looks like a dolphin!
Cape Henlopen at the mouth of the Delaware Bay.
It does look like a dolphin.
Gatlinburg is likely representative of whats going on everywhere, but it is sad. Our cabins there are completely empty; they were booked by the manager so they aren't available for anyone to book even if they want to. This was done per the mayors request to local businesses.
I remember when it was Silver Dollar City. My Mother in Law loved Dollywood.
Here's a really cool video with one of our local guys, Skip Stewart, in it.
Nice P-51 pics. That’s me in the back of the J. The artist Steve Tack was in the backseat of the Phantom flight lead. He gave the painting to me at my retirement. Good times!
