No camera available but my RV10 cruised at 6500 feet, mp2200, rpm 2400, fuel flow 15gph between Stephenville KSEP and Boerne Stage 5C1 most of the trip at 200-205 knots GS. Nice little quartering tail wind.

Leaving SRR this morning with a 60 knot push and my strongest turbulence experience ever. The Trio Pro Pilot held fast! A learning experience.

BTW I know someone who demonstrated this weekend that an unsnapped fuel cap will hold for about 200' of takeoff roll before bailing out, and then fuel dramatically starts to demonstrate how low pressure air moves over a wing's upper surface.

Ouch, that's one way to drive up the hourly operating cost.

Haven't been able to fly a "REAL" airplane for a couple months! Not a great weather day, but a good day to make a FAST run....

Default My fav!

We snowboard at Ski Apache almost every year and it has been my goal to fly my -8 into KSRR!! Looking forward to checking that one off the list!

That's who that was. I heard you call Roswell Approach while they were working all those T-34Cs. That's right around when I turned south from Roswell because it was getting too unpleasant for low level pleasure flying. You sounded very comfortable though.

I wish. I might have to come visit again next year. Too much going on this summer for long RV trips. I might be able to swing a two day trip to Osh, but no more.
