We did it!!

We did it!! We did it!! No, let me start again. YOU did it!! Your generous donations to the LadiesLoveTaildraggers Scholarship Fund amazingly got us to our goal of $3000 in just 10 days.

I’m ashamed to admit it but my real ... Read More »

Beech’s everywhere!

Beech’s everywhere!

You bet Beech’s are everywhere, we’re at Beech Party 2014. Staggerwings, Beech 18s, Travel Airs, and more V-tails, Dukes and Debonairs than you’ve ever seen in one spot. It’s not all about the planes though, it’s about meeting new people – new pilots. Thank you to whoever suggested photographing all the lady pilots. We got a kick out of posing in front of Stagge...

What a blast, bumps and all!

What a blast, bumps and all!

Anne and I had a blast flying down to Tullahoma today. Silky smooth early in the morning then we bumped our way into 3M7 for super cheap fuel. $4.89 a gallon!

We bumped into Joy Terrell and Kelly McClure right off the bat. It̵... Read More »

“NO, don’t bring your fly-in here”

“NO, don’t bring your fly-in here”

“No, don’t bring your fly-in here.” Unbelievably, that’s the message I heard today when I phoned Lake Murray State Park about the possibility of holding our 2015 LadiesLoveTaildraggers flyin at their state park resort and airport. Don’t get me wrong, their refusal to even consider allowing our group to come to their airport had nothing to do with our ladies. It had ev... Read More »

High Sierra Backcountry Flying

High Sierra Backcountry Flying

This is one of those “WOW” videos you’re gonna love. It’s “10 minutes of fun flying in the northern Nevada desert, following bush pilot Kevin Quinn and a small group into several makeshift airstrips that push the limits of aircraft performance and pilot judgement.” Doesn’t matter if your flying style is off a 10,000′ int’l airport or a 1000R...
