Got some beach flying time in after a busy few months of no flying:
Boy, that sure looks a lot like the winter flying I did in Wisconsin yesterday!
Fall colors in the Arizona desert!
Gillespie Dam on the Gila River. near Arlington, AZ. Built 1920, breached 1993:
Was looking at your Mooney today. More delays I hear. So goes aircraft ownership. My Velocity is in there now for a gear faring issue.
Yeah, 1st ground run showed the digital tach didn't register proper RPM, he pulled it and sent it to the manufacturer to be reprogrammed for the two individual mags. Also, the something with the Gami injectors. He's anticipating another ground run mid next week.
Yerington, Nevada (O43):
Somewhere very early AM
Here's my flight to verify that my newly installed ADS-B setup is working correctly. Lots of lazy circles and climbs/descents over Ontario's Class C. Had to do this twice because I had an incorrect setting on the transponder at first. Nailed the PAPR...no red boxes!
Perry-Foley, Perry, Florida, 40J. One of those great sleepy airports. Courtesy car was a beater ex-cop car, motel in town out of the sixties. Great stuff.
Whats the story behind Rialto. Between it and Riverside I learned to fly. Sad to see it go.
Though not all fond memories, the winds were something fierce during santa-ana wind events.
Edit. Guess this is a pic thread, don't have any airplane ones but I bent some metal at work recently so I guess it'll have to do.
I'll have to look closely next time I fly over. I remember seeing buildings on at least half of where the runways were, and I'd bet it's totally developed by now. I'll see if I can spot it on Google Earth.
Yeah, those Cajon Pass winds can be brutal. I flew up and down that way from Cable on every flight for my 40 hours of Phase 1...some of the nastiest turbulence I've experienced. But now I know my plane will hold together!
Here you go:
Just looking at that map gives me anxiety. Just don't think I could live anywhere with that much population density.
That's the last time I light my pipe while visitin' outhouse row.....
Yep, just me and my 10 million closest friends.
I guess it's all what you're used to. I can't imagine living in a rural area.
It was a nice place. [sigh]
They are harder to pull that way.
And there is an awful lot of density among that population ...
Getting gas at EHO and this pulled up...
Did the pinup girl come along for the ride?
What happens in the bonooney stays in the bonooney!
I love the Clearwater area. Looks like a great place to get some airtime in!
A look from the inside:
....the master at work!
Motorsport Ranch Cresson, TX
Big Bear Lake airport in Southern California, Nov. 1. I took the photo from the restaurant. It’s a fascinating airport to visit: mountains, tricky approach, cheap gas, and a ramp that deserves the name “ramp” because it is inclined.
Last time I flew with this FO he was a brand new CFI and I was giving him a checkout in a 172. Look at us now! Combined age in the cockpit was younger than most of the people on the flight LGA-PIT
Sunrise in DTW
Flew down to Santa Cruz for a work meeting a couple days ago - it was the first time since passing the private checkride in May that I’ve actually had a proper mission (as opposed to just cruising around Northern California for fun).
On the way down to Santa Cruz, following the Coastal Highway
Flying over “downtown” Santa Cruz, the beach, and the boardwalk in a PA-28-181
On the ground at Watsonville (KWVI) - cute little airport a few miles east of Santa Cruz proper
10mi final for 28R back at the home ‘drome (KOAK) the following afternoon
Uh oh, I got the dreaded red X!
San Juan Puerto Rico airport
Nassau Bahamas - made emergency stop for an accident. The crew was asking for blood donations from passengers, so it must have been really bad. I never found out if the guy made it out alive, or if they just dropped off the body. Fingers crossed....
First time in St. Maarten. Beautiful place.
Snorkeling, planes, and beers on Airport Beach. What a blast! (literally....the fence is intense) Only got a couple pictures, but lots of video. You've seen enough on YouTube already though
Met up with the Jason Schappert and the MzeroA gang and had some drinks. There was about 15 pilots in the group. A good time was had by all..
Today it was spitting snow and cold rain. TAF was spot on for clearing late. Pics westbound to Union City TN.
Had a chance to fly today. The colors were amazing! Most of these are right in Southern CT and over the Long Island Sound. It’s flights like these that make me realize how beautiful this part of the world is!
if I would have taken a pic today, it would be posted here:
Curious. What does that 7th breaker from the right on the second row go too. lol
Holiday travel to New England 12/24
Is this really the first pic of 2019?
Downtown Winston Salem
