    5500’ of brand new concrete. New airport that is not open yet. No paint on the runway. I didn’t land, low approach only. Taxiways recently finished, miles of fresh concrete.

    Couple cloud shots from this morning, and downtown Cincinnati. Had a 40 knot tailwind going east, paid for it on the way home.

    I didn’t recognize the runway because every time I fly in there I am under the hood!

    Stopped at Haggerstown, Indiana last night. Gigantic beautiful 4000' grass airport. Sadly in a way no one was there. Perfect cool night light breeze and less bugs for a change. Airplane performance is coming back...what little it has. lol

    I’ve had them pop up online as much as a year later. You’ll probably have 1 or 2 more show up

    fishing trip last week with my son to Lake Of The Woods in Minnesota. 10 planes of “flying family”, howling winds, daily walleye limits, and great times. We left central Michigan and flew accross the Upper peninsula and on the way home went down and around Chicago. Great trip, great times.

    Trip to Michigan and back home last weekend. The way back it was the most amazingly perfect flying weather. Nice and cool and I don't think I hit a single bump.

    Lake MI off the left wing

    Right after descent, getting close to KAZO TRSA

    Cloudy with a chance of perfect flying conditions on my way back around the lake. Should have expected that given the good omen that was on my wing during preflight.

    @plongson, did you stop in at Marble Canyon (L41)? That's a fun little airport.

    Ha! No but it as on my list...and walk over to Navajo bridge! We just ran straight east from Grand Gulch to Page (right next to L41) and did a tear drop into KPGA, got fuel and a soda and let the dog pee...lol

    Something that I’ve never noticed about the Ford Trimotor. The wing engines instruments are on the pylon struts. Oil temp, pressure and Tach.

    Is that part of the original design or something added after the fact to make it easier for some maintenance function?

    I believe it’s original. Back in the day, the Tach was mechanical and it was too hard to run the cable from the engine to a cockpit gage. The plane has been modified to use an electric tach but they left the gage there. The pilot told me he sets power with the nose engine RPM and syncs the other two by ear.

    Had an employee whose mother was a test driver I believe at that track. Said hardest part was that they sometimes wanted non-stop high speed driving without a bathroom break (fuel tanks were oversized I guess) ... said her longest was 8 hours ...

    For when your local brewery just won't cut it...
    ... There's the $100 beer + donut run to Michigan!

    (and I came within about 5 seconds of flying away with the FBO keys to the courtesy car, which apparently just happened 2 days ago to them, too)

    Headed outta Michigan

    Just north of South Bend IN

    Near KMGC (Michigan City IN)

    And Chicago off the right wing.

    Made good time!
