Spring is good! Yesterday I flew though a cloud of NoSeeEms. It was a big black cloud and you could sure see 'em! Black smudge all over my windscreen, leading edges, cowling and struts. Then I landed and splattered fresh cow dung all over my starboard door, strut, wing and flaperon. What a fly day!!

WARNING: This one is a little long.
The title is, The Hawk And The Fox. It is the video story of two guys taking their neighbors for a morning flight in Utah. It all starts out when these guys decide to have their morning coffee at the top of a deserted island in the Great Salt Lake, then .....

That was nice, Steve! I'll be heading to Salt Lake next month for a Thorp fly-in (at U42).
What size tires do you run?

John,
I just changed from 6:00x6 to 8:00x6 and love them. I've found 12# psi to be just right for me. Now believe this or not, because I can't figure it out, but I actually increased my cruise speed at 5,000 rpm from 90 to 92 mph with the larger tires.
