Madeline Island and Richard I. Bong Museum PIREP by Jay Honeck
At 6 PM last Tuesday, Mary and I found ourselves with four unique attributes: 1. Both kids were away at camp -- for a week (that's 168 hours -- but who's counting?) 2. We didn't have to work for the next 2.5 days. 3. The gas tanks were full. 4. The weather was good throughout the Midwest. We...

Stiffed on Ebay by Jay Honeck
I've only sold two items on Ebay (I've bought a lot, though), so I'm really surprised (and saddened) to report that I've run into an avionics buyer who simply won't pay for the item he won. I listed our old Narco AT 50 transponder (which, BTW, we replaced with a Garmin GTX-327 -- a truly great...

things to carry by Gary Drescher
A pilot crashed on a NH mountain in fog yesterday. He survived, but his 17-year-old son did not. Rescuers were able to find him in part because he was blowing a whistle. I just added one to my flight bag. (http://makeashorterlink.com/?J3AA12BB8) --Gary

Cost splitting for private flight? by aaronw
Hi all: I have a question about cost splitting for a flight by me, with only a private certificate (in a rented plane). It's fairly well known at work that I do have my certificate and I'll go up on sightseeing flights with my friends if they're interested (always looking for an excuse to go to a...

Bockscar pilot Charles Sweeney RIP by Cub Driver
I just now learned that then-Major Charles Sweeney, the pilot of Bockscar on the Nagasaki mission, died in Boston last Thursday at the age of 84. According to an obituary this morning in the Aero-News email newsletter: A staunch defender of the atomic missions, Sweeney told Quincy (MA) Patriot...

If you better economics, start at home by R.L.
Unlike in medical malpractice, most aviation lawsuits are wrongful death actions involving dead pilots. And guess who sues when a pilot dies: THE FAMILIES of dead pilots, blaming the manufacturer for their beloved's death. So if we want aviation economics to improve, we must prohibit our...

TO THE GROUP by Today's Curious Question
Well today I'm relaxing watching an old episode of Dragnet, and this episode involves a drug smuggler who crashes his plane. So here's Gannon and Friday standing beside it and I notice an N number. To me the plane looks likes a Piper colt ( rounded rudder ) but in another scene Sgt Friday says...

Sure -- the ONE time in my life I want to fly to Superior, WI, in the middle of absolutely no where Wisconsin, to visit the Bong Museum (BOTH kids are at camp -- heh, heh) -- and the President of the United States chooses TODAY to visit Duluth, MN. Right across the bridge from Superior... It's a...

"Proceed on Course" = "Right turn approved"? by Bob Chilcoat
I took of from Reading, PA this morning from RW 31 with an on-course heading of 105. As I was cleared for takeoff, I was told "Cleared for takeoff, proceed on course". In the past, they've also added "Right turn approved". This time they didn't. I was concerned that I hadn't been cleared for...

Cool GA ariport near ABQ by [email protected]
I'm in the middle of planning my SAN (CRQ actually) to OSH flight. Day one looks like I'd like to stop some where near ABQ. Maybe just a bit (100 miles) to the north or east of there. Any cool GA airports near ABQ? I'll need fuel and a hotel for the night. Paul

Request: Technical Proofreading EAA Sport Aviation by Jim Weir
In the July 2004 issue of Sport Aviation, there was an article published on the installation of ELTs. I have taken issue with the article with Tom Poberezny and Scott Spangler, and before I go off half-cocked (how unusual for me) I'd like some confirmation from this group. Understand that I may...

Flying to Canada in a club airplane by Andrew Sarangan
If the pilot is not the owner of the airplane, AOPA's website recommends carrying a notarized letter from the owner or club authorizing the flight. Everyone I spoke to has never heard of this requirement. Since a club member is actually a part owner, is the letter still necessary? I...

High And Low by SelwayKid
Prompted by a low flying question I thought I'd ask the board the highest or lowest airport you've flown into/out of. I've got about 12000 hrs in the lowest reaches of the airspace system doing crop dusting worldwide, and utility work with helicopters in same areas. BTW, a couple of those airports...
