You can’t post this without putting up some Mark Utecht Fox mustang rally film! Awesome sounds.
Colorado welcomes all kinds.
Dear god those bumpers!! Can strap luggage to the back bookshelf there. I forgot about those things back in the day. Everything had them
I think you’re wife is certifiably awesome. You need to buy flowers first.
It is. I occasionally fly one so I’m very interested in the causes.
92-97 a 152 rented for $56. When I taught 98-00 I was $30...(but i was paid $12) When I taught, the warrior was $85 I think.
I have an E6B slide version in aluminum. Those were trick. I know a few guys who used to hot rod theirs so they could whip the disc around and get really fast with it one handed. A bit of 2 in 1 oil on the center, some polish here and there....
First hit was after Katrina and av gas went from 2.50 to over $5 a gallon, making any plane horribly expensive. When 12 gallong/hour now cost $60/hr, rental rates went up 50%. Then general inflation hit. So $1 of 2003 money is worth $1.50 today. Correcting for inflation, the cost of all my college aviation from…
As in Volvo 242. The true answer.
DJ shattergear. Whoever got my 21 year old volvo after i was done with it may not have had the most solid of manuals.
Eh.....912 to 914....totally different config. 912 was a stop gap after the 356 but what they found was a better handling car without so much weight behind it. I sing for a return to that. A unbloated 911
All the more reason to rebirth the 912.....back to the sporting car instead of a model bloat. The MX5 stayed true to it’s ideals.
Looks like it slid into a ditch.....unless it’s a shadow but i honestly can’t tell on my phone here
Sell both trucks. Clear a space. Get a Willys Overland. Lovingly restore with jeep XJ parts.
There is thought about unnecessary chute pulls. For example, one Cirrus pilot noticed a blocked static system (gives air pressure info to instruments so they tell you correct information) and pulled the chute.....but forgot to first try and flip the switch to “alternate static source” and avoid the chute pull. So…
Jeez, had no idea the reliability went that direction. I know the one on my field at the time was an early example and therefore did not have usual and popular brke systems....so when it needed a brake job, it was down for 6-8 months waiting for proprietary pads and discs. I’m sure it now has a Goodyear brake STC.
Indeed it is, meaning that it’s quite efficient. Exhaust is still chopped and noisy but compared to other planes, it’s a better solution.
400knots is hard to beat too. Near citation speed.
The wing airflow actually disrupts air delivery to the props as well. To mitigate it the prop needs to be something like half the chord of the wing before in distance behind said wing. NACA wind tunnel stuff. So the exhaust is cut up but the noise from previously disrupted flow is huge. Any long-ez has serious noise…
You are welcome, sir!
