Ruminations such as yours David, make MA2A such a great place. We're so much more than cool images, although we are that too.

Gracie and I taking the active to watch the sunset tonight..................

I have got the SL dialed in. We shot a dozen landings tonight where you could barely feel the tundras roll onto the runway. I love that airplane!

BTW, field report on the Hero3, it's great, but low light performance is still garbage.

Life can bring you very nice surprises when you least expect them. I went outside to move the sprinkler and heard the distinctive sound of a radial engine. Didn't have enough time to get a camera, but I did get to see a B-17 fly over my house. What a treat

We also had some MD State Police Training going on, and I did have time to get the camera for this.

You should go knock on their door Gero and volunteer your services for a ride along.

What do you think a father/son pair of these would look like in the vicinity of HQ? Great range, fast, good looking and I wouldn't have to ask JR to borrow the Gulfstream

What, no winglets? I thought they were de rigueur in these modern times...

604 mph and a 3200 nm range. Two for the price of one G650. Problem is Ya can't get a G650 for about two years. I'm beginning to see the trials and tribulations of the much maligned 1%

Well, as I start to size up my October it's looking more and more likely that I will be able to make Alliance...the wife has given quazi approval (I mentioned it and she didn't say no), one of my early birthday presents was my car rental for while I'm there, I've got accommodations sorted...yup...it's looking like a Fort Worth kind of October.

That's pretty cool Go4Long ....... I know those going are going to have a great time!

I had thought about it for a while .. but in the end I pulled the trigger on 9 days at Cades Cove, Tn over Thanksgiving into December shooting White-tail deer. I do hope we get some snow !!!

Speaking of Thanksgiving ...... it's the 28th this year ....... really late .. and as always the 29th is My Day -- so there will probably be no turkey or cake, just old and new shootin' buddies and some luke warm soup over a propane heater at a picnic area, part of The Great Smoky Mountain National Park

Well, after 2 yrs and 7 trips to Japan I finally had time to see something other than boardrooms, restaurants, train stations, and airports. Spent Saturday 2 wks ago in Hiroshima, and Sunday in Kyoto. Rainy, gloomy weather both days, tough light for pictures, and a great time to take in some of Japan and it's history.

I found Hiroshima to be very moving. I don't' think it matters what your views on the events of 1945 are, the museum is very graphic and truly does a great job of sharing all who visit what the horrors of war can be. Sobering and challenging all who visit, is there a better way than armed conflict?

Sharing a few pictures from the Atomic Dome, one of the few buildings left standing after the bomb. And also a picture of the Golden Palace in Kyoto. Kyoto was the capitol city of Japan for over 1000 years and there are many temples, shrines, and market areas. Actually the rain may have dampen the picture taking for the good, easier to just enjoy the sights and the culture.

Enjoy,
Dan

too quiet in here...here's a shot from my visit to my mom's house on vancouver island earlier this year. Their house is about 200 feet from where this was taken.

Cade's Cove is one of those 'last best places'. Enjoy your time there.

Visited Cade's Cove on one of those dreaded 'family vacations' back in the 1970s but to this day, I can still clearly recall looking around the "cove" and taking it all in as the guide said "many residents were born, lived and died here without ever seeing what was on the other side of those hills."

It's still a moment that for some reason, gives me chills when I think about it.

I'm a bit late getting this out, but in the realm of better late than never, I'd like to extend an invitation to the A2A folks to do some G2T (ground to tree) shooting.

I plan to spend a couple of weeks in and around Crested Butte Colorado shooting fall colors during late September and would like to invite any of you who have an interest to join in.

We have a spare room and a pull out couch in our mountain home that we would like to share. PM me if you are interested.

Snipped the pics


That is a really awesome view. I suppose I need to add Colorado to my long list of places I need to visit...

Also...Jim...this short description...I have not been flying for a really long time. This sounds amazing. I need to go Cubbin' soon. The addiction needs to be fed.

So, this morning I headed to the hangar and put the Super Legend through it's paces for 2.5 hours. I love 877PC and it will always be part of the family, but there's a lot to like about my Buddy Darin's new creation. My first goal was to work the pattern until I could squeak those big Tundra tires on with barely a chirp. That took about 20 minutes. Then I began exploring the flaps, simply amazing. With just one notch one can slide down final at a stable 45 knots, play the nose on the horizon and be down and stopped in a couple of fuselage lengths. I lined up with a runway light, poured the cobs to it with one notch, and jumped off the runway long before I crossed the next light, so less than 75 feet by far. Another 20 minutes in the pattern and Wilson One arrivals were in order.

The pattern started to fill so I blasted out to the lake to run Glenn's and my favorite route. The air was incredible this morning, cool and solid as a rock. I decided to go do a little air work. Stalls in every configuration are non-events. The aircraft flies like a much heavier plane in a way, but unlike Super Cubs and Husky's, it is a two finger flyer. The Lyc 0233 is very smooth and responsive and the composite adjustable prop is a perfect match for it.

The Super Legend has new seats, leather stitched with lumbar supports in just the perfect location. I flew for 2.5 hours and could have gone twice that in complete comfort. That is one mod that I'm having the boys at Legend do on 7PC, a half an hour in my front seat and my back is screaming.

When I was playing around the lake I could just imagine skimming that glassy water with a set of Legends amphibs, what fun that will be. Today was so much fun, JR and I are going to do a carbon copy tomorrow morning. My Super Legend is going to be metallic black with silver side lightening bolts and a silver sunburst on the wings. The Garmin 696 in the center of the panel makes you grin when you think of trying to fold maps in a Cub so you could read them but not have them fly around the cabin. We've come a long way.
