Jesse James' P-51 flight by Jon Woellhaf
In a recent episode of his new series "Jesse James is a Dead Man," Jesse pilots a P-51 around the pylon course at Reno. I was amazed at how well he did after only a few hours training. I'm quite certain I couldn't have done nearly as well. Assuming Jesse really was actually doing the flying, of...

Well that was an experience! by es330td
I got to fly right seat in a 58 Baron yesterday. The most plane I had been in previous to that was a Bonanza. It is the completely wrong plane for my kind of flying but was an incredible ride.

Anybody have VB skills for aviation weather? by CaptainCraig
Hi folks! Just wondering if anyone thinks it is possible to retrieve enroute winds and metar/taf information using Visual Basic? I have a MS Excel flight planner that I think would do well if I could get current weather into. Writing from Canada, by the way.

To go around or not go around? - Video by Kai Rode
It would be interesting to hear what others would have done on the first landing. Go around. It's almost always the safer decision. But maybe I'm influenced by a similar situation I experienced the day before yesterday...crosswind landing on RWY31 with winds 24013G23KT. I used full flaps...
