Was up cruising and seen this biplane higher up and coming at me. Pored the coal to the old Kitfox and was up 1000 feet and made the 180 to catch him. Tuned the IVO inflight and caught him. He was a bit nervous and turn down and away when I got close; I thought I was in a dog fight for a secound. So I kept my distance and moved in slower till I got this picture. I love my Kitfox.

If you look at post 49 in this thread roundels are the blue and white circle with the maple leaf on it that is on the CF18. It's one of our air force markings

I actually think we got it from the RAF because they called them roundels too.
Canada, it's own country yet still so influenced by the commonwealth.

2013 came in with a cold front here in Phoenix. Well cold for us. 35 degrees New Years morning. Yes I know some would love that as their high temp for the day but here it is chilly.
Arrived at DVT about 9:30 hoping the sun would do its duty and warm the hangar and contents enough to facilitate an easy start of my 912S. I seem to have the coldest blooded Rotax on the North American continent. Much below 50 degrees and it objects to internal combustion but then so does its owner.

Don't laugh. I preheated my engine with a heat gun. Even a 5 degree temperature increase of high priced Austrian aluminum makes the difference between go or go back home. I did the longest, most thorough pre-flight I could manage while my little four-stroke contraption warmed its cockles by a whopping 10 degrees. There was hope of meeting Dan B and his wife Wendy at Falcon Field by 11 am yet. A plan had come together the night before to fly to Marana,AZ (AVQ) for breakfast/lunch.

Dan would take his lovely and very patient bride on her very first flight in their new family Kitfox.

It was a great way to start the New Year. The flight was fun, the day beautiful, the meal was good and the company, stellar. Only regret was my wife was too under the weather to make the flight with us. It is the cold and flu season. I promised her we'd all fly to Sedona but only when it warms up a little.

Now, random photos of our day. Hope yours was memorable too.
