Default The Mosquito twin

Took a break from the Giant Scales and took up the Mosquito Twin electric to see how it flys. The retracts worked and it did not sound too bad for electric motors!

Default Ultralight fly-over!

Digger does some low fly-bys at the field. About time I dug out the camera, he was a little higher and on his way back towards Washington! Need to get one to land at the field. 700' runway should be no problem!

Default More action at the field!

The old Edge 540 flew for the first time in a few years. The Cessna 182 looks like a real plane cominging in for a landing, and some more misc. pics from today and yesterday! Beau flew the big MX2 and ripped up the sky. Had to throw in a couple pics of my bike just for fun.

Default Airplane Rescue!

Found this video of me and a buddy retrieving Paul's Giant Scale Extra 260 out of a 65' Tree with a skid steer to make the road to the tree and the bucket truck in action. Have to see it to believe it! That's how we "roll" at Missed Approach"!

Default Calm before the storm!

We were having a good time flying. The wind was perfectley calm. Then Bill hollered for me to land. We didn't see this coming. We are high up on the hill, but this was toooooo close to the storm clouds! Nowhere to run to when you are in the middle of these wierd clouds!
