    Or on old 182 with a seriously dirty belly. Whoever that thing belongs to should be ashamed.

    Now that I think about it, I believe there were only 3 welded gear planes in the bunch. @SixPapaCharlie @masloki we must be doing something wrong.

    Wish I could have made it, but not meant to be this year. I’m shooting for 6Y9 instead

    Ugh. Sorry to hear that.

    Even more painful when you have a long flight to make. Right after I got set-up on a SR22 group years ago the owner dinged the left flap. We had to take the Arrow on a long trip instead. It was about 1:30 longer each way in the Arrow. :(

    497 total two wheeled miles this weekend. The ride home was much nicer, the 1st two hours Friday involved a lot of cold rain and wind.

    @eman1200 Banooney spotting.
    Hard to tell in the photo, but I was passing him at a pretty good clip. It looks like he is flying backwards in the video that I will soon be uploading.

    So you can get another invite to the FAA office? o_O

    I know you said they were friendly, but couldn't you just invite them to meet you for lunch? :D

    During the maneuver we were in contact with Jack Daniels....who readily gave us clearance.

    What a guy.

    Hey y'all, be sure to fill out the survey from the park, and be sure to give lots of love to the park staff. They were very accommodating to our group in many ways!

    Almost looks like you're doing a burn-out/wheelie while taking off in that one lol.

    Great pics Kate!
