Isn't there an ice storm or something going on today? or is weather different down state?
We're getting rain instead of ice down here in the deep south
Rain/snow/sleet/ice depending on where you are - or all of the above if you get to commute. Guess which category I fall in?
A little formation flying
Showed up at my field today. Had to do a double take.
For those of us not familiar with business jets . . . What's the anomaly? Old jet?
It is a Westwind. Was developed by Aero Commander/Israeli aircraft. This was one of the later ones. There are only a handful of these left flying. One of the first capable corporate/business jets. For me it’s one of those you hear about but never see.
Cool! The very definition of low acquisition cost coupled with high operating costs!
Figured it was something like that, the cockpit eyebrow windows made me think Aero Commander when I first saw it.
Evening flight, PIA, EZI, and back.
Finally back in the air. Almost 7 hours in the books on Saturday including a Chicago flyby.
This qualifies as an aviation pic because the cat seems to have discovered how to hover.
@NealRomeoGolf isn't the only one that got a view of the Chicago skyline. Bucked a 60 +knot headwind south of Nashville but eventually made it home. Seeing ground speed in the 70's was painful. 8 hours 5 min on the tach bc of it
Wasn't sure if I was gonna have a pup when I got back but she pulled through. Was a good day.
Glacier near Denali/McKinley, elev here 5500ft. Used the spot for my daily snowshoe walkabout.
Lowly and slowly over the historic Vulture Mine and nearby Vulture Peak in western Arizona.
U2 shadow pic made me remember this…
Actually a cool short video, can’t figure out how to upload that…
Sunrise in Madrid
I did an angel flight to KOSU today, and turned around to see this landing:
Tail number doesn’t match the current registration.
FAA registration states it should be a Sorrell SNS-2. Single engine
last character is a "D"
Oh…as in…looks like an O.
Nice. That’s the same one!!
Sedona in the snow ...
New hangar going up at BMI on the site of the former restaurant. Word on the street is it's State Farm, and it's going to house their 5 new Gulfstreams.
My travels took me to CPS again today
How 70's is their FBO building?
What appears to be a Martin 202? @keen9 any intel on this beast? Looked like it was painted with a foam roller...
Had a minute to check out the abandoned Jetstar and hangars while waiting for my passengers
And the shot of the day:
Correct on the first part. First I've heard of the Gulfstreams but I'm sure that will be kept very quiet if true. It'll be hard to miss them as I taxi by. I believe there are still four Challenger 600 series in the fleet today, 2 of which live here. All tracking blocked on Flightaware but the N numbers are somewhat obvious if you catch them on ADS-B exchange or FlightRadar.
Its a Convair 440 that's been sitting there as long as I've been around the airport. Used to be an old DC-3 next to it, that we got to see again at OSH since they sold it to Bassler Conversions. Anyone need a project?
is this toe giving me the finger?
Whichever camera you're using for these photos, I need one
Almost forgot what good weather looks like
Name that field.
Looks like a Susie.
After hearing and seeing everyone do the low approach to the Shuttle Landing Facility, I was quite disappointed when I was denied because “they have a bunch of Teslas on the runway” haha what?
oh well, next time I suppose.
bummer. Have to catch it on your way back up. You flying the Arrow down?
Yup, the good ole club Arrow.
