    Social distancing... Woody in the Kitfox and Stan in the C-170 (visible just in front of my head) are clearly more than six feet away.

    We did a public service flight yesterday. There were some bugs over Phoenix that weren't practicing social distancing. So we smashed them.

    Here's PHX - relatively deserted except for Southwest 737s stored along the south side of Taxiway Charlie and at some Terminal 4 gates, and unused rental cars in one of the storage lots.

    Then there were a few rental cars stored in the parking lot of an events center 15 miles south of PHX. I think I want the white one in the middle - can you get that one out for me?

    My local field was surprisingly not busy today compared to last weekend considering how beautiful it was. My buddy Stan was just kicking back in front of his hangar when I arrived... "You flying?" "No place to go." "Let's just go out and play." Ended up cruising up the beach at 500', I took this picture of him in his C-170:

    upload_2020-5-3_20-14-21.png

    At exactly the same time according to the timestamp he took this picture of me:

    upload_2020-5-3_20-15-11.png

    After, we climbed up higher and I did some loops and rolls. "That was fun," I said, he just replied, "I'm jealous."

    one of many ag strips I service for work. Not ideal with wheel pants but I leave them on. Tight for a 182 and the Ag guys land massive air tractors there. Wires at the end of the dirt strip and when windy like this day it gets sketchy as it swirls over the hangars and trees, right when you don't want it to be. 1588909923242_IMG_2632.JPG IMG_2698.JPG

    Yesterday morning we took a flight back into Arizona of the 1870s. We flew 50 miles northwest of Phoenix, over the old Vulture gold mine (discovered by Henry Wickenburg in 1863), then turned west and generally traced the route of the road from Vulture to Culling's Well stagecoach station (1866-1905), 12 miles northeast of Salome (@pmanton 's neighborhood). Most of that route looks more or less the same as it did in the 1870s. Social distancing, Nineteenth Century style. Some folks wore masks in those days, too, but for a different purpose.

    Great pictures. Good illustration of why I've installed 406 Mhz. ELTs in both my planes.

    Upon finishing the annual in Michigan, we were excited to finally bring our Husky home! Nice flight alongside my brother before we left.

    Her flying days are over. Picked up a ramp queen in Louisiana over the weekend. Keeping most of it for parts, including its nearly new interior and Garmin/King stack. Lifted on my flatbed with a Harbor Freight engine hoist.

    Yard art... big wind direction indicator. Just because the flying days are finished doesn't mean there is not a useful purpose left in it.

    Great point, I think @OkieFlyer might want to put the fuselage up on blocks in his yard.

    Maybe he will sing a tribute song to the old bird, a la Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me”

    Went for my first instrument lesson this afternoon and got to watch a flight of 5 Blackhawks land and hover taxi to the ramp for fuel. Got some actual and got to shoot my first approach to get back in. Fun afternoon! IMG_20200520_160834127.jpg IMG_20200520_154734597_HDR.jpg IMG_20200520_154651574_HDR.jpg

    Not a pic but a crappy video resolution wise. Climbing out of ground effect in the F-4 (20) years ago at China Lake.

    'X' marks the approximate site of the legendary but short-lived gold mining town of La Paz, Arizona. La Paz was established in 1862 on the eastern bank of the Colorado River after gold was discovered nearby. It became the largest town in Arizona Territory with a population of 1,500 in 1864. It was the county seat of Yuma County, and for a time was a candidate to be the territorial capital. La Paz was a major transportation and supply hub, being a stop on the stagecoach line between San Bernardino, California, and Fort Whipple (Prescott), and a landing for steamship traffic on the Colorado River.

    The gold mines played out by 1864, and in 1866 a flood shifted the course of the Colorado River miles away from La Paz, leaving it landlocked. The post office closed in 1875 and the town was abandoned. A new river landing was established at Mineral City (soon renamed Ehrenberg), six miles southwest of La Paz.

    The La Paz name was revived in 1983 when the northern half of Yuma County was split off to form La Paz County.

    I-10 is in the foreground of this photograph, looking north.
