    LAST RIDE ON MY HARLEY While riding my Harley, I swerved to avoid hitting a deer, lost control and landed in a ditch, severely banging my head. Dazed and confused I crawled out of the ditch to the edge of the road when a shiny new convertible pulled up with a very beautiful woman who asked, "Are you okay?" As I looked up, I noticed she was wearing a low cut blouse with cleavage to die for... "I'm okay I think," I replied as I pulled myself up to the side of the car to get a closer look. She said, “Get in and I’ll take you home so I can clean and bandage that nasty scrape on your head.” "That's nice of you," I answered, "but I don't think my wife will like me doing that!" "Oh, come now, I’m a nurse," she insisted. "I need to see if you have any more scrapes and then treat them properly." Well, she was really pretty and very persuasive. Being sort of shaken and weak, I agreed, but repeated, "I'm sure my wife won't like this." We arrived at her place which was just few miles away and, after a couple of cold beers and the bandaging, I thanked her and said, "I feel a lot better but I know my wife is going to be really upset so I'd better go now." "Don't be silly!" she said with a smile. "Stay for a while. She won't know anything. By the way, where is she?" "Still in the ditch with the Harley, I guess."

    I used to love EZDok back in the day - but then when Chaseplane came out, I got that and didn't look back. It will be interesting to see how this stacks up to Chaseplane, I am sure it will be on par at least given the reputation of EZDok. Thanks for sharing Joe

    Superb Tim, the communique of the PIREP has only just reached Mutley Towers (The new, very expensive HQ). The company Shrink told me you have been camel humping again, you remember what happened in Somalia? They are still cleaning it up now. Prince Charles will be most disappointed, as will 'C' ? Thanks for the baton, flying out tomorrow to catch up with JG by the weekend. Whoops, I was a bit previous there, I have stood the troops down J

    Leg 2B- Flight 12 February 2019 Winslow, AZ (KINW) to Double Eagle II (KAEG) The flight was uneventful. Beautiful weather. I was a bit concerned about how the aircraft would handle the 10,000 foot altitude crossing of Lookout Mountain, but it performed well. Take off was at 1850Z. Landed at KNXI for gas at 2022Z, and was airborne again at 2244Z, and landed at KAEG at 2255Z. Here are some screenshots: Image 1 Approaching Joseph City 1910Z Image 2 Petrified Forest National Park 1943Z Image 3 Grants-Milan NM at 2139Z. Looks like there was a grass fire to the south of town recently

    Meteor crater is pretty impressive in real life. It's amazing the amount of damage a 30 meter long rock can do

    Leg 2A- Flight 9 February 2019 Sedona, AZ (KSEZ) to Winslow, AZ (KINW) I didn't get begin my taxi until 1655Z. Part of the reason for the delay is that, unlike modern jet airliners, you don't get some yellow gear for a "pushback" i when you park too close to the fence. You get to do it manually.....: After departing Sedona, I had an uneventful flight to Meteor crater, located 20 miles west of Winslow. Then I proceeded on to Winslow, where I stopped off to top of the Cub for the run into KAEG. Unfortunately, I took a bit too long getting gas. After filling up and beginning my taxi to the runway, the weather changed. Those high winds I was worried about reached Winslow at 23 with gusts to 28. As that was past my personal minimums, I returned to the ramps. It looks like I'll be spending the night in Winslow..... Image 2. Departing Sedona, looking North.

    Leg 1- Flight 7 February 2019 Cassa Grande Municipal (KCGZ) to Sedona, (KSEZ) Takeoff from KCGZ was at 2124Z. The weather was as predicted-little to no winds. Perfect weather for flying a Cub. The flight was uneventful, except I neglected to turn off my handheld radio to save power. By the time I got to Sedona, the battery was dead. This gave me the opportunity to practice my lost comms procedures to contact Sedona Tower get permission to land at Sedona. (For those who haven’t flown the A2A Piper Cub, it simulates the real Cub, which doesn’t have an electrical system. In the Cub, radio comms are done via handheld radios. A2A simulated this by providing it's virtual Cub a handheld radio. However, it has a short battery life. When it dies, the virtual pilot can’t contact ATC). Image 1.

    Omg that is criminal! You should join me on my stream one night and I'll fly it. It's really not that hard to be honest once you done it couple of times. I found this a while back and it's the best item in my inventory for the Connie. It's a checklist that shows you everything you need to do as the pilot and engineer. Check it out... Connie checklist If you every need help give me a shout

    Interesting angle, love the Connie, I used to see them regularly at Heathrow when I lived next to the airport in the early 60s. The sound of the big piston aircraft is something very special indeed. We got the lot, Connies, Stratocruisers, DC3s,4s,6s and 7s, Breguets , Curtiss Commandos etc. However they were soon mostly replaced by jets and turboprops. Happy times.
