FBO’s: Thumbs UP and DOWN!

FBO’s: Thumbs UP and DOWN!

I can’t tell you how many airports I’ve visited in my decades of flying as PIC and passenger, but seems I leave each airport with an unmistakable impression and a new story. As stories go, sometimes it’s a crazy final approach – a flat out, hold-on-to-your-headset, bumpy ride in. Or it might be interesting locals who keep me in suspense with their flying stories. I’ve...

Join me on a summer flight to …….. anywhere!!

It’s summertime and I’m raring to fly. With a little luck I can get away from my day job for a few days and fly to my heart’s content.

Yes! We have a LLT not-to-be-missed Poet Laureate!

Self proclaimed LadiesLoveTaildraggers poet laureate Kelly Jeffries out-did herself this year at the LLT flyin. Kelly has a long history of surprising our group with entertaining and oh-so-insightful poems at our fly-ins and this year may be the best yet. Kelly writes her own poems and, word’s out, is most creative at altitudes above 30,000′. Since only a few were lucky enough to make ... Read More »

Saturday @ the LadiesLoveTaildraggers TX Fly-in!!

Saturday @ the LadiesLoveTaildraggers TX Fly-in!!

‘Awesome on steroids’ is the word on today’s LadiesLoveTaildraggers Texas fly-in! An upbeat comment like that usually doesn’t jive with 500 foot a.m. ceilings or the fact that we had to nix our fly-out poker run, but the crappy flying weather turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I mean, really, who gets a call from Scott Glover at the Mid America Flight Museum saying he... Read More »
