FLYING: It’s a Man’s World

FLYING: It’s a Man’s World

It’s no secret that I love to fly. Whether I’m airborne solo or with passenger in-trail, I’m bound to be having a good time!

Good for Business, by Gayle Crowder

  I am obsessed with aviation. When I’m not at the airport, I want to be at the airport. Or to talk about the airport, or airplanes, or flying. It’s difficult to be stuck working in a retail store all day, trying to concentrate, when my mind is two thousand feet AGL. Trouble is, there is no one at work who wants to talk flying. Or so I believed, until I my hubby gave me a small si... Read More »

Take the test!

Take the test!

I’m forever amazed by the amount of aircraft knowledge some people carry around in their brains. These people are impressive as heck and spew out very specific, detailed aircraft trivia like we all must know this stuff. Thinking about them, I thought it would be fun to take a little test and see how we fare. Take a look at the questions under each of these 7 pictures and do your best to answ... Read More »

Greatest day at OSH!

Greatest day at OSH!

Kate and I started our last full day at OSH by bumping into one lady taildragger pilot after another. Right off the bat we ran into Fat Cub flyer Wendy and her Supercub buddies.

The Friday LLT lunch group was a much smaller crowd than Tues... Read More »
