Guadalupe Peak highest point in Texas on the way to Tucson this weekend I the Arrow....
were u wearing pants at the time?
Haha! Since we were flying to meet 6PC and AggieMike for breakfast, I felt pants were mandatory.
I'm thinking there may be a "Merits of flying a Cessna without Pants (a literal satire)" video in the future though.
When I flew cancelled checks in the southeast, I flew the 210 in khaki shorts, khaki shirt and sandals. With the window open.
I looked like a slightly pudgy, pasty white crocodile hunter....
More fun in my Joshua shirt today. Expanded my comfort level too.

Name the city/airport
Short final LGA (on an airliner).
Midway in the foreground.
I always want to pull over when I'm on the freeway and check out the mine (amazing that there is a freeway going through).
Omaha, taken coming back from AirVenture '17. Pretty cool how the river encircles the airport.
The oxbow lake just beyond the airport is actually where the Missouri river used to be until 1877, when a flood changed its course.
Can anybody guess what interior this is?
A few weeks ago ISP-N03-ISP. Nice, calm night.
A few days ago getting vectored for the Expressway Visual 31 into LGA. Winds were gusting to 35 that night. It made for a fun approach.
They have a mine in the middle of the city?
-200 or -900?

Approaching Bismark ... looks like a drawing of a human figure... ain't it?

Yep! I think the mine was there before urban sprawl.
900. We separate our fleets so we have pilots that only fly the 200 and others that fly the 900.
Oh really? That’s interesting. Do you get assigned one or the other during initial training? I know a guy that just started with EDV, flying the -900. Didn’t know if it was based on seniority or what.
Yea you are assigned your base and equipment in the first week of training. Right now, new hire seniority is based on age. If our TA passes, new hire seniority will go by social security number which is how DL does it. I think there’s enough differences between the 200 and 900 that could get you in trouble if you haven’t flown one or the other in a long time. The landing picture is completely different. Our sim instructors are getting dual qualed if they want to.
A great day at Cable airport that reminded me how friggin' cool it is to fiddle with airplanes. Breakfast at Maniac Mike's with a good pilot friend, then some maintenance (new brake linings/backing plates, cleaned and re-greased the bearings, flushed and re-bled braking system, swapped tires side-to-side to equalize wear). Bedded the pads in with some 35 mph to 5 mph stops on the runway; let 'em cool for 20 minutes. Then a 45-minute afternoon flight up the Cajon Pass to reward myself. I was going to go to San Bernardino and do some pattern work, but it was clear up the pass and a chance to get out of the mist (about 4-mile visibility). And smoooooth too through this notoriously bump stretch.
'65 Studabaker Lark?
DC6? Not a guess I did some googling.
no idea what the heck that thing is, but the helo driver has a lot of skill. it was 14G19 around that time
DC and Andrews AFB?
ASA one flew the 200 or the 700/900. From what I remember the differences almost put the 700/900 into another type other than a CL65, and notice the rake on 700/900s, supposedly designed that way to get around the requirement for exit slides. That's what I always heard. I'm sure the RAA and regional airlines wouldn't lobby for that...nahhhh.
Since no one else participated, you win. You are wrong, but you win. Indy, view looking west-southwest. Thanks for playing.
Yeah I knew the airport looked familiar, been in and out a few times. Do I get a prize for being wrongright?
You like cigars? If so, Pm me your addy.
@eman1200 send me yours too.
Nah, nonsmoker, cigars included. Thanks though.
Not a photo, but plot of yesterday's flight to Big Bear. On the way up there it's a 23-minute flight, with 10 minutes of climb from 1440' to 9500', then down to Big Bear's runway at 6752'. On the way back (shown), we took a left over the dam and flew down the canyon. Wheeeee! Did a glide test too at idle...560 fpm descent at 80 KIAS, which works out to 9.3:1 glide ratio. Forgot to check true airspeed, which would've given a better indication.
The airport restaurant is great, but we wanted to try something different this time. Can highly recommend Thelma's, about a quarter mile walk from the terminal.
