    Great pictures SKALYWAG! I especially like the one with the two Texan girls sporting their cowboy boots and long-arms. How often do you have to polish your plane to keep it shiny? BORN2FLYAK, what size...

    Screwing around the other day, landed on the beach at McGrath. I knew it would be firm enough but underestimated the drag for takeoff. I ended up aborting the first takeoff and had to let a bunch of air...

  • My 182 did that this spring (O-470R), but I didn't shut down with the mags. I had landed at the Tatalina long range radar site, shut down and after loading up my passenger, fired up within 2 minutes. It...

    I finally got out of the 207 again for some fun flying today. 3 trips to the Cheeneetnuk River bench in the 185 to drop off hunters. Due to weather we didn't get underway until around 6pm tonight, so I...

    Last night I dropped off my cousin, his wife, and brother-in-law at the bench on the Cheeneetnuk River for a 3 day rafting trip down to the Swift River, on to the Kusko, and hauling out at Stoney River....

  • born2flyak replied in forum topic Cessna fuel cells
    I removed the brand-new looking and seemingly perfectly installed fuel-bay tape yesterday, MEK'ed and scrubbed the whole damn thing and probably lost lots of brain cells. After letting it air out for a...

  • Here is an inside curve gravel bar take off from last weekend on the Nowitna River here in AK. You definitely want to pay attention on the sloped and curve landings and take offs. Should always drag the...

  • born2flyak replied in forum topic Tire Wear
    Once the tread is gone anywhere, you'd better replace them, real soon. I blew the left main 8.50 on the 207 on takeoff from asphalt last month, and the very next day blew the other landing on gravel. No...

  • I take off on a curve most of the time on a beach. and used to get a pretty good slide going on occasion. A couple of things you should know. You are more likely to kick up a mostly buried stick/log or...
