Women Airforce Service Pilots 1943 – Unusual Occupations Series – YouTube

I’m going out on a limb with this post. I will certainly get some push-back from a few ladies telling me women pilots are down trodden, undervalued, demeaned, and insert your own words here “___________”. I’ve been forwarded examples that prove their ... Read More »

This Fly-In was For The Birds!

I really wanted to go to the ‘1st Migratory Bird Fly-in & Photo Shoot’ at Havana, Illinois, hosted by the Recreational Aviation Foundation. I wanted to go, I just wasn’t so sure about the 17 degrees on my thermometer at 6:00 a.m. yesterday. Yikes that’s cold! It was to be... Read More »

Seriously, is that even a runway?

“Is that even a runway?” was the question I received along with a link to this video about a strip in the Idaho backcountry. Hey, don’t ask me, I live in the flat lands where corn and bean fields thrive, a whole lot a miles from anywhere you’d call the backcountry! I love see... Read More »

In most of the US class E airspace begins at 1200’ above the terrain. However, in some areas in the western US, the starting elevation of class E is 14500’ above sea level (MSL). The images here show an area where the class E begins at 14500’ MSL and continues to 18000’ MSL (the start of class A airspace). Remember: in the United States class E always extends up to the bottom of class A airspace.

If any of you guys want your airplanes drawn/painted (to be used on facebook so very small digital file - don't try printing it out) paste a good picture here and I'll draw it just for fun. Someone asked me about pricing for commissions and I want to get some practice, first. These will be just small "for fun" colored drawings. Unlike the ones I might do for pay which would be on paper. Everyone can share their airplane but make sure it's a good picture. Don't expect me to be geek enough to know about details I can't see from the photo. That includes the lovely lady who asked me about prices. You can all get one free. Just because I want to 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
