It was nice of them to park both of my planes next to each other.
Had to give way to this puny aircraft. Memphis ground had their priorities off.
Flew 8 hrs past few days. Weather was finally good around my area.
Visited Lambert Cafe (home of the throwed rolls". Then another trip to Branson. Branson was amazing to fly to/from. Flight took 2 hrs to Branson. Ordered 2 philly steak sandwiches which took 1 hr 45 mins to make. I thought I was slow till I met the kid making the sandwiches. Just sat there watching the jets roll in/out.
@Sluggo63 was that you???
A couple pics from Trigger Gap ( 17A ) AR. First trip, already thinking of a return trip.
Awesome!! I was actually thinking about hitting it this weekend.
What will you be flying?
Had some guys from the Green Country Aviators (Oklahoma) FB group looking to make a trip there. Looks like a blast!
I'm pretty impressed w/the whole setup. Propane grill there w/propane ( with an extra full bottle ), firewood ricked up for the fireplace. My wife actually approved the restroom facilities <gasp>.
Lol. Not me... I was off that day.
And... that plane has one too many engines for me these days.
Right after that they made a 767 wait for me. I felt so special.
Passed my instrument check ride yesterday. Got some flying on top.
That's awesome. Working on mine and can't wait to get there.
It’s always neat taxiing next to them
From Chicago to Midland TX in 1 day (just over 1100nm for my path). Quite a journey in the arrow. Fort Worth center was extraordinarily helpful in giving vectors around any potential weather issues, I don't know how they do it. They're on the radio non-stop, more than any other airspace I've been to.
Tomorrow I continue on to Phoenix (if weather gods allow it).
But overall a great flying day. Ate a little turbulence in Arkansas, but smooth sailing after that!
This cloud seemed to stretch for a billion miles.
Coming in to land at Abilene for gas.
Edit: only place I've ever heard that politely asks you on ATIS to make sure you don't accidentally land on a taxiway is KABI. Gotta be some stories behind that ..
It will be bumpy going through NM. I think there is some sort of law requiring NM air to be a rough ride in summer.
But we haven't had a thunderstorm in the Gallup area for a week now.!!
Have a free pass this weekend. Places I almost went to: Wayne, NE (National STOL competition); Northern Arkansas.
Where did I end up??
5D5 - Woolsey Memorial, Northern Michigan.
Went searching for one of the last remaining tri-color VASIs and unless it was hiding, it's gone. 1C1
evening surf check...
Phoenix to El Paso. Stop for gas and then planned to move along.
Edit: after standing on the ramp for a bit and looking at the mountains I decided I'd stay a day . Take off tomorrow!
Short final 26R at KELP
Coming in from the west at 7500' to KELP.
Got this one the other day leaving ABQ.
AT-AT Walkers at Boston Logan.
Those aren't the droids you're looking for.
The last time that I had that view (short final 26R) I was busy demonstrating the maximum demonstrated crosswind for a T-1. T'was a tad breezy, but I'd do it again.
All the KSDL jet owners fought to be parked closest to the Arrow...
(quite possibly the first jet-centric FBO I've been to that didn't relegate the arrow to a spot adjacent to derelict fuel trucks...)
I was actually a little concerned because the wind definitely favored 22 that day, but all the commercial traffic was using that. But went off without a hitch, cool spot to fly!
The one and only time I flew on Southwest Airlines, the 737 scraped the right wingtip on that landing.
Flew out to Sedona and had a blast. Had to shoot an approach thanks to that layer on the way home.
The car is the rental I got at the airport. 2007 Ford Focus I affectionately nicknamed 007
Super cool picture!
Flew past BQ1. Will have to come back another time.
We should do a Midwest fly out to BQ1
It's a hike. Did 10 hours today. Kinda tired.
These Marines did the overhead break at KILM after I landed.
First cross country trip in the Comanche. Sure was nice moving at 150 kts. Lost most of the time savings because I slowed down to 100 to put the gears down 30 miles out, just to be sure they come down haha.
@RDUPilot invited me to join you guys today but with 10 hours of flying, couldn't fit lunch in.
