That's a beautiful image Mark, and a great gesture. The print you all did for me sits in a place of honor and I look at it every time I'm at HQ, it is very dear to me.

Gorgeous morning in the Cub, the skies were absolutely like a Zimmermann canvas laced with stratus, alto cu and Texas blue. When the wheels lifted off 36 at KTKI the winds were wafting NNE at about 6. When I lined up with the runway and hour later they were variable at 16G22. Not a big deal if you know how to dance on those rudder pedals a bit. The trick is taxiing back to the hangar because each time you add power the little yellow Cub wants to fly again. What a treat that airplane is on a beautiful morning, pure flying.

The Tucano/P51 debate is not one of space, I'm fixing that as we speak. It's whether you want a warbird that requires hours of work for each hour flown, (granted one of the most desirable airplanes in the history of flight), much of it's care is out of the scope of mere mortals such as myself. Or, do you want a current turbine fighter trainer that is very cool, fast, forgiving, and pretty much all you have to do is clean the bugs off it and put it away til the next time. Knee jerk is .....the Mustang, I understand, and "Tucano Air to Air" just doesn't have the same ring Wherever would I find people to help me polish...........................................?

...about " The trick is taxiing back to the hangar because each time you add power the little yellow Cub wants to fly again", I am sure it only takes practice...

Wow Jan Arie! Your images of the race are luminous! Well done! Glad your Mom like m choice of airplanes. I could get my familiarization hours knocked out fairly quickly if I brought it over to take her for a ride.

I was just talking with a friend across the way who bought a new TBM 850 9 months ago. He had about 250TT, none in high performance, much less turbines when he bought the 850. The underwriters required 100 hours with a "mentor pilot" before solo. He laughed and said he flew friends to the east coast, west coast, Arizona, anywhere they wanted to go, so he could knock those hours out in short order. Interestingly, he suggested we fly out to Colorado together to see Pilatus, because he decided he made the wrong choice when he bought the 850 and is happy to give up the 320 knots for the comfort and amenities the PC12 offers. I liked hearing that. There is no comparison in cabin/cockpit appointments and comfort.

I am a different sort when it comes to this stuff though. Paul was ready to solo me in the Six at 5 hours, I had him fly with me for five more until he jumped out one day and told me in mixed polish/english, "Is time, you must be brave!" I've plied the flight levels flying Butch's King Air for a number of hours, so I'm not totally unfamiliar, but there will be a lot to learn. The July issue of FLYING's feature article is all about why everyone loves the Pilatus PC12, a fun read! John Dibbs did the photography.

It's toasty here too Lady Jo, but the "cold front" mustn't have gotten to you yet. We have winds out of the NNW at the moment and it's 76 degrees.............................................................inside HQ

I had rented a old 300 2.8 L and it performed like a pro
even tested it with Marcel's new 2.0 ext III and it went without an itch in daylight.
I had asked the guy at the store were the old lenses went after the switched to the new 300 He couldn't tell me or he didn't wanted to Because I want one but I'm not willing to pay 6899 for a lens but I'm searching..

We have a light northerly flow this morning, very unusual here during the summer. I'm going to fire up the Cub and take advantage of it before the day heats up. Y'all have a wonderful weekend.



Same over here at Lancaster this morning, after pancakes and bacon, I pulled the C-140A out and washed it, kinda like my dogs, it needed it...

We hit 116 in Chandler, AZ today.

I think Phoenix (officially) hit 119.

Ramp guys I know at PHX posted laser thermo temps of 160+ from work today. UGH...
