    We will pick up some kitties at KJQD which will fly with us to Michigan and we had planned to get gas there. So we will look for a different fuel stop...

    how crazy...

    HENDERSON, KY
    State police say the plane that crashed in Henderson was possibly stolen.
    Two men were found dead in the plane Wednesday morning at the City-County airport just after 7 a.m.
    KSP says those men have been identified as 47-year-old Barry A. Hill and 48-year-old George Tucker, both from Sanford, NC.
    State police say neither Hill or Tucker were certified pilots and the plane they were flying was from the Rome, NC area and is believed to have been either stolen or the men were unauthorized to use it.
    State police are working with the NTSB and FAA to piece together what happened.

    The plane was a Bellanca Viking...

    We going to get a bit of a late start tomorrow. Got to pull a kid out of school early and get them to grandmas before we head east. Should leave around 2pm followed by a fuel stop in Dexter or Kennett, MO. I'm guessing we'll arrive around 7:00pm.

    That correlates with the forecast 32 kt tailwind I am seeing. Hmmm.
    MOS forecast has it 28020KT at 4 PM and 27012KTS at 7 PM.
    Based on that, we'll probably depart KENW AM to enjoy the tailwinds, but take a long lunch and fill up in the area and get in closer to 7 PM than 4.

    With that much wind you can play beer pong by yourself.

    That’s going to be an interesting Xwind for landing.

    You've got a twin, just differentiate throttles.

    Might be fun to try that technique in a sim. Tomorrow, probably not. But keep the ideas coming. I need all the help I can get.

    I have booze, plates, cups, a waffle maker, mix to do breakfast in the event that there isn't a restaurant option for breakfast.
    I will chip in for meat or whatever else once on site.

    This is going to be fun!

    Also, winds look like crap so I will be filming your landings.

    I thought we covered this in the past. There was a rule voted in that the twins...being they are heavy and sink in the mud...get first dibs on the paved surfaces. :)

    Usually if I'm worried about running out of rudder I just keep the speed up to give it a little more effectiveness but with 3200 to start with...

    Looking forward to seeing everyone down there!!

    I’m altering my plans a bit, forecast winds in the area are high, OWB has a forecast of 310 18-29kts which is pretty much a direct crosswind at rough river. Supposed to die down in the evening so I’m just going to plan on being in around 6-7pm.

    All jokes aside, be safe y’all. It was every bit a sporty approach/landing!!!
    At least I have @Bill Jennings to drink with me.

    Do any of you guys have a handheld so you can give us tips when we start arriving?
