    Sat in the plane, turned the starter, the starter engaged, I can hear the engine running but prop won’t spin. Then I realized I haven’t turned the master on or the fuel pump on. Turned both on, prop still won’t turn.




    Then I woke up.... and that’s how the Sunday morning begins.

    Must have been one of those early Bonanzas with the electric prop, lol.

    That’s one mother of a problem, ain’t it?

    Perhaps it's the medicine that has changed the refresh rate of your eyes ... the prop is actually turning but it appears not to as the RPM flicker is matching your refresh rate.

    Or it could have been the bananas before bedtime if you are eating something like Elvis' favorite ... "fried peanut butter and 'nanna samich!" :drool:

    A Freudian Slip is when you mean one thing but you say your mother.
