    You're doing it wrong, blue side is supposed to be on top. ;)

    Great shot Jim!

    [Iceman] "It's not your flying, Maverick. It's your attitude".

    I love "unusual" attitudes. I'd love to leave the "usual" attitudes to usual boring/scared pilots. But I do not own an airplane certified for "fun" flying. Sucks. Maybe in the future. We'll see how long it will take me to wear down the wife. ;)

    In the meantime, keep on keeping on. Inverted, of course! How else?? :D

    Sounds like fun. I'll look into it.
    Did you do it?
    Maybe we should go in as a group?

    Have yet to do it myself. But of the local FAAST reps highly recommended them.

    The instructor for Arlington is very nice. I have talked with him on the phone several times. I am considering it or maybe the Gary Koontz class in Georgia.

    Sporty's now sells a new T-shirt design.
    I bet I'm getting it for Christmas.
    Finally a useful T-shirt! :)

    Do they sell "Iron Eagle" T-shirts with a picture of a Hornet on them?

    Looks like an F-14 mated with an F-15.

    Just looks like a bad F-15 to me.

    Nauga,
    who's not bad, he's just drawn that way.

    Took my friend Harry flying for his 100th birthday. He flew P-47s in combat so we had to look at the world out the top of the canopy.
