    Beautiful day to fly in IL. Checked off KBLV (Scott AFB), 3LF (Litchfield), and 5K1 (Palmyra). This was in the bathroom at Litchfield, and both the bottle and the little sign made me laugh

    Climbing out over Canyon Lake, TX. It was around noon and it was hot hot hot!

    Nice to see an airplane NOT on a flat, paved surface.

    Pair of cl415s on the ramp at our destination this afternoon. Walked over to take a look and the pilots invited us to climb in and look around.

    We parked next to their bird dogs. That 310 was beautiful... paint was flawless. 20210629_130735~2.jpg

    The fbo is chopping up some old Saab turboprops and selling the parts. It was kinda cool to see the parts laying out back. My boy couldn't understand why anyone would chop up an airplane.

    Spent the last 4 days driving a living room. Voyagaire houseboats picked us up at KORB.

    This KMAX was based there doing firefighting. The crew was out doing some maintenance this morning when we got back. The pilot was happy to show it to us and tell us all about it. It's a crazy machine. Two tidbits: the rotor blades are made of Sitka spruce and don't rotate in the rotor head like most helos... The have basically airlerons on them and twist when the airfoil is deflected by the cyclic.

    I love that Piaggio gull. All of their aircraft are beautiful. The look like they flew right out of a 50's sci-fi movie.

    We met up for a lunch hop. We recently reconnected by accident through POA. I was Arnold’s FO three decades ago. Good times then, good times now.

    Annotated it for interested parties: North end of Aquidneck Island (Portsmouth RI)...Bristol RI to the upper left, Tiverton to the right, and Fall River MA (my residence) off in the distance. Must have taken it a while ago; those cooling towers in the center of the shot were torn down a while ago. Great shot!

    Refreshed my night currency tonight. Unfortunately all my photos were blurry, so these were the best I got:
    University of Illinois Memorial Stadium with the big screen on. Assembly Hall State Farm Center behind it.
    20210714_211111.jpg

    The home drome. Tower had the lights turned all the way up because the Envoy in front of me couldn't find it. It was blinding....I don't think I've ever seen them all the way up before. Thankfully she turned them down on my second downwind.
