PnP mission Ottawa - Sept-Iles and back ...Lycosaurus
What to do on a cold -28C morning.... why not fly two RV7 and one
RV9 to Sept-Iles QC from Ottawa ON, a 500 nm leg and bring back some
dogs for PnPC. We had 7 pups and two adults of which
they thought one might be pregnant. Just beautiful dogs melting your
heart away. Tried to sneak one in my coat, but got caught every
Left at 7 AM and returned back to Ottawa at around 7 PM. Twelve hour
trip, with about 8 hours of air time, over 1000 nm round trip.
PnP Mission - Pickup @ Marathon-FL Keys ...Dan Landry
I had an opportunity to do my 2nd PnP mission. Pick up 3
chihuahuas in Marathon(KMTH) and deliver them to Airport
Manatee(48X), just south of Tampa. Temperatures in Marathon a
balmy 80 degrees & a beautiful day for a mission to help out these 3
The first flight ...daviid
Today I was showing some of my employees the airplane I am
building in the warehouse. One of them felt it was quite small so we
decided to sit inside the canopy to give it a feel. Right then my
sister (who is my admin assistant) walked in the warehouse to ask me
a question. She stopped in the door, turned around, turned back and
grabbed her phone and snapped this.

Ep. 8: Kangaroo Island in 24 hours ...haydnc RV-7 (Australia)
rockwoodrv9 Snowbound ...Meridian, ID
This is what you find at KEUL when you go to get in your hangar.
To be fair - the snow falls off the roof to form the piles. Then it
re-freezes and I either wait for spring or get a backhoe to dig it
away. There is a NOTAM closing the runway because of snow and
ice. I got an email from the airport manager today with his cell
phone number that a pilot could call and get permission to take off
Maybe Im a wuss, but I am having difficulty getting too excited to
work on the plane when the inside of my hangar has ice on the floor!

Wind sock webcam now online at

Airport construction photos
Note: The north webcam is temporarily located inside
Tim Wade's office looking
through glass, meaning the infrared mode won't work at night.
You'll have to live with daytime ops until it's relocated outside -
and when it's outside you'll have the full 130° field of view.
