I'll have to say, if I was entertaining the idea of throwing myself out of an airplane (and I am not), this operation would be the one I would trust. The instructors were extremely professional and very nice. All the aircraft were turbo props and in excellent condition. They have a super operation from beginning to end near as I can tell.

The t-shirt that said, "It's not a sport unless you can die from massive internal injuries" kind of brought me back to reality.


Didn't dampen Bryan's enthusiasm....................

There has been some amazing shots on FB of the Phantom Pharewell. At least the German's know how to send off one of the most magnificent airplanes ever built in style.
We just send them off the be target drones.

Sensor cleaning the 1Dx's for the past couple of hours, ugh! Both my X's are in the batch that need to be sent off for the fix. I hate for them to re lube my mirror mechanism, it throws enough garbage on my sensor as it is.

Outstanding Jan Arie! And you should be so proud of the fact that you can actually put gas in them and fly. What a joke we must be around the globe. Although, we are giving 7.5B to Kenya, so nice to have a printing press.

(A non-partisan statement, that they are all idiots!)

Nice Phantom J-A. I remember visiting my relatives in Germany as a kid in the 70s and seeing the Phantoms and Starfighters doing low level supersonic runs, and occasionally hearing about their interactions with high tension wires .

Amazing how long a service life they've actually had

Great stuff, J-A!

Laura, how cool you got to spend some time with Harry and hear his stories.

I've been busy singing with Sound of the Rockies in Toronto. We won our sixth consecutive bronze medal in yesterdays's chorus contest: so great to perform for 8000 barbershop fans and always gratifying to bring home the hardware.

As icing on the cake, I'm joining a group of barbershoppers from several states and provinces to sing the national anthems at today's Blue Jays game. Should be a hoot and a half!

Ya know, I own a parachute that I never plan to pull the cord on....the only time it ever opens is for its 180 day repacks..and I like it that way!

Oops, TOP: one of our tow planes and its pilot hard at work...







That airplane is very close to my heart: it's a 1957 Super Cub that I bought from a guy in Virginia in 1978, and flew home to Colorado (it took me an extra three or four days to get there, between losing a magneto on the first leg and being grounded in Ottumwa by weather). We flew the airplane for a season and then spent the winter completely rebuilding the airframe and re-engining it with an 0-360: at Colorado's altitude the 180hp is a must for towing gliders. In 1980, it served as the towplane for an expedition in which a group of us flew four gliders from Mexico to Canada along the spine of the Continental Divide: what great memories!

It's still earning its keep in the commercial glider operation where David sometimes lends a hand, the direct descendant of the business I started with two other people in 1977.

It would seem the best sports in life are that way.

Lately I've become more a browser of the thread than a contributor.
That's likely to continue for the next month or so as I'm now having to take the orange taxi to get to & from work every Monday & Friday.
