  • 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...

  • 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...
