Default What did you do w/your RV this weekend? (4/17/21 - 4/18/21)

I had the honor of leading a missing man flight over a funeral at Cavanaugh Flight Museum Saturday afternoon at Addison airport. Special thanks to Rob Reece for coordinating with the appropriate folks to come up with a plan for ingress and egress in Addison’s class D. It’s a tightish fit between DFW and DAL with a 4-ship and the class B floor is 2,500’ - having #3 ‘go west’ calls for finesse.

RGNL APPR and TWR made it painless and we are grateful that TWR stopped arrivals and departures for us for two minutes so we could get in and out so easily. With not a lot of room to work with, Smokey, Monkey and Steely were rock solid wingmen in the bumps and 180* steep turn, helping pull off a nice pass that hopefully brought a smile to the faces of those mourning. A satisfying use of the RV for sure. Amazing hardware and a wonderful community.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Jay Elwin Shannon. Veteran US Air Force.

Enter top green line, turn to the right, over the museum and back out…

Default I flew my RV14A to SnF

Easy flight until the end when we ran into a line of thunderstorms and had to maneuver to avoid them. Gotta love central FL (sarcasm).

Default Yet Another Pilots n Paws Mission

"Pluto" needed a ride from Gadsden, AL (KGAD ) to Beaufort, SC (KARW) to meet the Noah's Ark rescue lady. He will get some surgery on his shoulder in Charleston next week. He was a really sweet dog and a good passenger despite all his past troubles.

Default #1 RV and #3 RV on the ramp

At KSFQ for breakfast. First time parked side by side. RV-#1 (RV-8A) is meticulously maintained by its new owner, Tom Doran. RV #2 (RV-10) is someplace in Florida enjoying the good life. RV #4 (RV-10) is still in progress.

Yes - I do like pearl yellow!

Default Add Another PnP Mission for the Weekend

Three small puppies needed a ride to a foster in Austin from George West, TX. They will be headed to New Jersey via a regularly scheduled ground transport in a few week. Mom stayed behind for heart worm treatment and will be following later. Apparently the treatment runs $200 in south central Texas and over $1000 in New Jersey.

I was finally able to connect with a friend on this flight. She chose to try out the CQ1, with the knowledge she could go back to a Lightspeed on the way home if she didn't like it. The Lightspeed stayed in the case on the way back.

There were two twin turbo-props on the ramp today at teeny-tiny Live Oak County Airport. (background of 2nd to last pic) Hmm, I wonder just how many PnP passengers they could carry. Next time I need to figure out how to put a flyer under the wipers.

Congrats. No more playpen? You gotta bring it down to Intokern when there is free ice cream again. Iíll treat you to a scoop.

I wanna see how beautiful metal working can be; i have spent too much time looking at mediocrity.
