At first this video almost looked like one of those cheesy RC plane videos. But it isn't: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFoFde23WpE This guy really knows what he's doing. A friend of mine is still waiting on his Icon A5, but now I like these better. Especially the...

The Discovery channel Crash of a 727 by a[_3_]
I'd be interested in comments about this program. It was two years in the planning, but the team didn't figure out that a Skymaster chase plane at full throttle could not keep up with the 727 on approach. They didn't figure out that you should not fly an approach at typical glide slopes for...

So I am considering being an Alaskan bush pilot? by Peri123
Does anyone have any information on Bush pilots? I know generally what they do, but not how they do it. What kind of planes? Hours? Income?

R.I.P. Highflyer by Stella Starr[_4_]
Tragic news this week. One of the first friends I met when I joined this group as a student pilot has died in the crash of his "second" plane. Friends who knew John Johnson of southern Illinois will agree, because The Red Lady, his Stinson, was first in his heart...but she was nearly destroyed...

Are Reno Air Races sure to happen? by Robert Gary
Its a bit concerning that the website still says they have until the 1st of this month to come up with the money to pay the insurance. I'm holding off buying my tickets until I see something that indicates they were able to pay the insurance. Is the website information just old? -Robert
