  1. I had no idea J.G. has aged so well...or was aged so well before uncorked...whichever, terrific laugh. Classic PIREP Joe. What a Mammoth baton hauler and a Very impressive ride. Baton hauling like a Boss.
  2. Nice subtle-d field colors. And a terrific plane to sight see it all from. Nice shots Wayne.
  3. I just started seeing those amber tree tops poking out here and there in my scenery. Great captures Jury.
  4. Wow those sunset colors. Nice captures!
  5. My new favorite Single GA hauler for Airhauler! The C207 flies as easy as a C152, yet hauls up to 1500lbs of cargo, with a full IFR instrument suite, 14-16gph economy, 150kt economy cruise, and ability to carry 6 pax makes it a Very Profitable "Mid level" starter plane, or a first Upgrade after progressing beyond the stock C-172 if one went "Hard/Career" modes. With an outright purchase price of somewhere around 200,000 dollars, it's an easy plane to flesh out a small fleet. Some pics: Type Rating the 'Tundra' model: On the way on my First Cargo Job in the Bush 207: Concord heading to a small but paved strip in Southern Oregon with a load of Wood Products, a very early IFR departure. Thanks for looking, Coff.
  6. Good Morning all! A few Coffees to start your day:
  7. Layers...stunning. Love when the clouds stack up like that...the night lights don't hurt the effect one bit.
  8. Cubbie is a brilliant little hop in and bop about plane. Easy peasy slow and breezy.
  9. I've never seen that yellow stripe around here. Interesting livery...and a great ramp shot.
  10. Nice shot, and have to say that SW cargo are some of the nicest folks to tender/pick up from around the SF bay area.
  11. Gorgeous shots, and that uber wide screen is a very nice format.
  12. And for something a bit different...been wanting a Cessna Jet for some time, and was able to slip it into the above Essential buys above...something for Swanky Pax hauling. Cessna C550 Citation II. So far flies like a dream...and I was able to sight teach myself how to start it up on first try...nice.... Many working switches. First take off, a bit of back trim added lofted it by itself gently airborne...sweet. Doing Type Rating manuevers at 3300 feet...keeping speed down was interesting...very low power settings required. VERY easy to slip into a stable approach...and greased the first/type rating landing. Woot! Cheers. Coff.
  13. Sweet job Brian. I can see why our new friend wanted that paint...quite a looker there. Welcome to the board from me as well Richard.
  14. Got it, tried it, removed it...it is still too Freeware looking for my Coffee Snob tastes. But no doubt Turbocharging anything makes it better.
  15. My finances have improved somewhat, at the expense of my time. I had hoped to write a review for the new Carenado Shorts 360 but reality of my RL schedule nixed those plans...so I bought it. And while there I picked up a few other toys including Carenado's Cessna 207 Skywagon...not sure why i haven't added the later to my fleet yet, it is a great step up from the 206 in terms of pax and cargo capacity, and flies as easy as a C152. Pics: Lovely interior as per Carenado standards. And a hella busy cockpit, most of that is functional as well. And it hauls lots, and hauls butt...a very profitable plane in Airhauler. And then back to simpler systems...the 207 should have been in my fleets long ago. Bu Bye C206's, y'all are getting replaced. This also comes with a Tundra Model, haven't taken it out for a dirt spin yet. 150kts, 6 pax, or 1500 lbs of cargo...another Very profitable Airhauler. Thanks for looking. Coff.
