That's funny, Glenn. Jo shows us an oven, and you and I think of the Cobra.

Hi Mark:
I'm betting this oven is stalling the Cobra progress!!

I'm sure it is! I had forgotten they ordered a kit instead of a whole car.

Jo, can you please explain your choice of priorities?

Mark

Haven't posted much lately, but I figured I'd give Jo and Glenn a heads-up in case you are interested. I know it is heavy metal, but one of these 'babies' is on it's way to KAUS to spend 22 hours on the ground before heading back. I don't think these big birds are your cup of tea, but since it is the first time we fly there I figured it might be worth it.

Morning all!
They're not my priorities, I just document the progress ;-)
Both projects are Alan's babies. The pizza oven has taken priority over the last couple of weeks since the weather has warmed up enough to allow Alan to finish the dome. It will be very cool to get this thing done, however.

As for the Cobra, yes, we took delivery last year and Alan has been steadily building, although again in fits and starts as time and temperatures allow. You can follow the progress on that one at http://alanskickasscar.blogspot.com/ . He has the brake system installed now although he wants to redo one of the hose ends which is eversoslightly leaking.

Hi Jurgen,
Do you happen to know a flight number for that?

Here comes Jurgen's plane! Not sure I'll be able to get to Bergstrom to see it in person, but here we are.

"Prowlers" are supposed to be sneaky, aren't they?

A lot of us on the thread have Macbooks / Macbook Airs along with an iPad and or iPhone.
1 of the common issues is that this means carting a lot of extra plugs and chargers with you.
Well not any more. Check this out:

You can post those all day long as far as I'm concerned. The 3D on this one adds so much... I wouldn't have realised the bottom left sticks out so much otherwise.

I'm a bit late to the party but I hope Jay had a good day.

In other news, I am happy to report that we lit our brick oven for the first time this weekend!



Thanks, Jo! Yes the stereo pairs that work best are the ones where the normal image just doesn't have the cues to read depth properly.

I admire your brick oven extremely. Pizza, pizza!

Here's another way to track aircraft. The website flightradar24.com or the application for multiple platforms. It combines FAA info and received ADS-B transponder info. Normally it also displays destination and route times, not sure why it isn't for this flight. It even replays past flights. Hold your phone/tablet up to the sky and it'll tell you what flights you're seeing. Neat toy.

Erich,

it only displays route info if the ADS-B receivers like an SBS box have that info in their database.

I converted an RTL1090 USB TV Tuner to work as an ADS-B receiver using the Planeplotter software.
