    This is just a quick cellphone shot from the TAC Air ramp at KAPA. On the horizon you can see smoke from the East Troublesome fire exploding in size on 10/21.There is also a pretty good representation of mountain wave in the smoke if you look close enough.

    Nice. I like the color, and the sharpness is impressive.

    It gets a little washed out at times but you can't beat the set and forget utility!

    Here's one from last Saturday on our flight to Louisville. We've had the same weather all week, so then a nice flight to Memphis and now in Nashville.

    I was definitely glad to have the excess HP. Not many options if the fan quits

    I'd have been happier in the 180hp 172, certainly.

    I asked the passenger to help pedal!

    lol this is freakin fantastic......posted in a local pilot FB group...


    [​IMG]


    Who wants to safety pilot for me AND pay for half of the flight?!? Pretty please?

    .....just to make sure.....do people actually do that? That sounds crazy. Or maybe I’m asking the wrong people to be safety pilots....

    With last week's wind and rain, I expected the Connecticut fall colors to be over, but yesterday's hike and today's flight proved otherwise. I liked how the setting sun shadowed the valleys and showed the contours of the land.

    72°F (in November!) was just the icing on the cake for this open cockpit aviator...

    Next time, please go out to the wing tip and take unobstructed pictures. The cables make it harder to see. :D

    Well, @ktup-flyer gave me the idea - Flew up to Sporty’s (I69) to check it out. Super cool place!

    Well, my operating limitations prohibit towing anything and intentional parachute jumping but they don't say anything about wing walking... :idea:

    They set up a grill outside on Saturdays so if it wasn’t there and if you were there on a Saturday, must a victim of the bug. I should have flown down yesterday since it was 70F and CAVU.

    Cheers

    Oh, there wasn’t any grill outside, but this was also today, so I dunno. On Saturday’s there might be.
