Aviation life in Maine is different. There is a private field no frequency listed no flyers on vaf calendar no info nothing. Except couple dozen airplanes.





We circled tried several frequencies no avail. Saw five airplanes took off in sequence and when they left we landed. Guess who was there? The Pietenpol AirCamper!








Parked and continued scouting. Found this breakfast for $5 not bad my navi bought





This is very different place. Strange too. Everybody is engaged the same way. Everybody pulling. This fellow asked us to help. Three of us could not move this airplane tire wow!





On the other side they were readying some heavy machinery to pull.












Plenty of spectators. Siberia!!!





This place is one of the coolest place I've visited. Lindbergh airport 08ME.

Looked at Redneck Cadillacs.





Inspected a Breezy style airframe for sale.






Weight and balance station. First structure for adding weight second deeper in the woods for reducing







Time to go.







Took off along the same road. The road snakes along a brook and eventually brings you to a lake then to another lake then to the bungalow.









On big lake we circled a sloop. Sailors saw us and waived.





These sailors.







Day ended as happily as yesterday. There were plenty of pasta, pepperoni and twisted tea.

Monday morning. FOG!!!! Man I have to be at work afternoon! Captain wasn't worried. He knew the fog will dissipate in 30 minutes. He fed me and drove to the airport.






Plenty of wildlife on the runway and by the runway. Last time there was a flock of geese today it's thanksgiving turkeys.





Local scenery is captivating.











There is one more grass strip fully manicured. Right by those windmills.










Approach is tight but manageable. Departure not so.







Time to go to upper echelons, find a smooth meridian and slide down the globe to the City which never sleeps.






Back to the heat and smog. What's new in the Corridor today?



Big Navyyy!!! Privet!






Where is our space shuttle?






Back in the grind at 4 pm. Thanks for looking.

He drank the whiskey in his compass and took a nap? I have to meet this guy! I make a motion that Vlad should have his own forum at OK next year. You are welcome to wild and wonderful Cecil Co. Md. anytime Vlad. Great Pics. Where next?
