Pilot Report: Missouri River Breaks Fly-in 2015

Submitted by Heidi Stoeppler who is based at 79S, Fort Benton Airport, Montana and is flying a tcraft! Just got home from the 2015 Missouri River Breaks Fly-in at Winifred, MT. It was a blast!

Must see Stealth Bomber Refueling

Must see Stealth Bomber Refueling

I know that pilots and crews of U.S. Air National Guard units fly refueling missions every day. The level of precision flying involved has always astounded and intimidated me. Coming from the perspective of a general aviation pilot, the process of transferring fuel from one aircraft to another – in flight – is a hard thing to wrap my head around. Maneuvering into position under a KC-13... Read More »

Cedar Mills Airport, T30, Texas – Runway Flooding

Cedar Mills Airport, T30, Texas – Runway Flooding

Under dryer circumstances, our LLT group would have had a blast flying into this normally beautiful 3000′ grass strip. (Would have been a great Friday fly-out lunch.) It’s very sad to see this glimpse of what Cedar Mills Airport and State Park is suffering through. Video shot a few days ago by Ken Peck from Smithville, Texas. Final for 27 at Cedar Mills Airport.

Pilot Christy Nicole McCormick from Kansas experienced an emergency engine-out yesterday while flying her homebuilt Weedhopper. Christy is an accomplished pilot with over 3,000 hours and was able to walk away after successfully landing her aircraft. I asked Ch... Read More »
