Same as the one I ran for 4 minutes in my T-28.
There is a pair of red tail hawks out here that will attack planes this time of the year. Guessing it's a territorial thing related to nesting. It's happened to me 3 or 4 times. They go for them, but so far have never knocked me out of the sky.

The abandoned mall next to that site would be a great place for some indoor flying... To bad it's locked and guarded though

Let me know when you guys will be in the neighborhood and I will see if I can come out and play. I haven't been flying much as of late and need the R&R.
