Thanks man, I appreciate that
My old 9200 plus hour trainer.
Oh man, I wish! All Comanche 250s were in MPH. 171mph is actually very slow. I had just leveled off and took a bunch of pictures real quick because of the sunrise. 181-185 is the norm, so about 160KTS TAS burning 12.5-14gph. This was my trip from Kansas City area to the Annapolis boat show using every bit of the 1200lb useful load.
Looks like a "Wheels Up" Landing .
Sorry for the loss .
It was unfortunately a downwind and downhill landing that ended in a 4-5' tall snowbank from the entire winter of snow being plowed. It was not a soft stop, but we walked away. The options for landing spots into the wind looked deadly, rocks and trees and cliffs mainly. I chose the downwind farm road with lots of tall powerlines.
Is that a drooped leading edge I see on the wings? Can't tell if that's the light playing tricks. Almost looks like a Sportsman STOL kit from that angle.
Here's my 2010 RV-8. Loads of fun!
Nice, colojo! Where was your inflight pic taken? Sorta looks like terrain near Ramona.
Hi My name is Peter, I hope you like my plane. It’s called a Raptor. I made it myself on YouTube.
My baby, wife approved!
Ha! I didn't notice the MPH to the left of your speed tape. I think I see glass and my pea brain just assumes it'd be knots. Makes sense it'd be mph though. Still, 160 true on 12-14gph is pretty nice!
and the new hotness:
Love all the pix!
Me too! Even the ones owners think are a little more pedestrian. I love seeing all of it.
Finally a purple airplane.!!
My Swift and my boat.
Foothills of the Rockies near Boulder, CO. I lived in Denver at the time.
Here is 42W. Before and After she got painted a few years ago.
That makes sense. I was looking at the altimeter in your pic and was wondering how high Fullerton CA was.
You went with mph on the G5? I had mine installed with kts.
Nothing special with the airplane. But this shot, taken with an iPhone came out pretty cool.
'Nuther one...my friends Bruce and Christine with their -9A at a recent lunch meet-up.
Drinking some Toomer’s Drug Store lemonade at Osh in front of my RV-10.
Yep, since all placard stuff is in MPH I wanted to keep it all legal. I would prefer KTS but really it’s just a number who’s value doesn’t mean much. I do have Ground Speed setup in knots though. Pretty sure when I asked the shop, they said, “nope, needs to stay what the plane was certified in”. I didn’t take it any further than that.
I'm just the opposite. Knots on the EFIS but mph for ground speed on the secondary GPS, 'cause passengers always ask how fast we're going, and give me a funny look if I tell them in knots!!
I feel like the luckiest guy around every time I fly her
This is from the day I took possession - September, 2016. Since then, I've been updating her every year. New interior, panel, engine. Hoping to make air conditioning the next big thing.
Serious response: sweet bo!
Smart-ass response: now I've seen it all. A bo with a breadbox.
Wow!,Wow!! nice work, look's super.
That's an outstanding panel and the interior looks great too. Side note, clever idea to replace the ashtrays with USB ports.
Great looking Bo. I love my panel, but sometimes I wish we had gotten the 7" second display.
My 1967 V35 Bonanza
Brought my panel to 21st century last October. The only piece of last century avionics left is KX155:
"Hey Mike, did you know that the world has a $300 oversupply of avgas right now?"
"I am pretty certain you made that up, plane. But fine, dammit, let's go somewhere and fix that."
Keep 'em coming, guys & gals. So cool to see what everyone flies!
...with a built in cutting board.
It's a hat, it's a broach, it's a teradactyl...
I've been waiting to use that in a response to you!
How do you like the Garmin 696?
DO you like it better than foreflight?
Wow, there are some really gorgeous airplanes on this forum. Here are photos of my 1963 Mooney C model. I have owned this airplane for 15 years.
