My girlfriend can fly!!! (or post pics of your flying significant other here)...

I'm fortunate enough to have a girlfriend that supports my many many hobbies (cycling, fly fishing, flying, shooting, etc...). I'm doubly fortunate that she participates in all of them (sometimes) except for fly fishing. Not only is she HOT!!! but she can fly very very well...
If you have supportive and participating partners, post their pics here....
I sure can't wait for summer....
BTW- she's a crack shot with a .22 and a 9mm as well... and can climb like a monkey on crack on a mountain bike...

Yep! I agree with ya! My wife doesn't fly but does play golf with me (I've been playing since 8 years old) and also comes along with me to watch sprint car and modified races (local dirt tracks).
She did fly my firebird xl once. She crashed and complained when I told her she has to go get it (it was in the weeds and jagger bushes).

hehe... I actually have taken her out fly fishing, and she's caught a couple but really wasn't into taking them off the fly... Oh yeah, and the bird's nest tangles on a windy day wasn't a hit either. So, for now, it's just me and my Rhodesian Ridgeback on the streams around here...

My wife doesn't fly but my but my daughters do.

Like I really need my wife telling me how ugly my Tigermoth is compared to everyone elses...

And I think I'll just halt that line of thought right there.

It's actually a good thing. Saturdays I get the kids out of the house and down to the park (where they fly a little and scooter a lot) so she can get a break. Our thing is theatre.

The best thing is... everytime I get a new plane (or bike)... Her reaction ISN"T "How much did that cost?" It's always, "Cool!" or "When are you going to fly/break it?"

Sounds like you need to make her more than just your girlfriend (hint hint wink wink)

When she's your wife all the fun stuff will stop (just kidding)

First of all Flipin,

I lived in Boise and there were no girls that looked like that when I lived there. She must be a import model.

Second, no airplane geek I know can pull chicks like that. So now I have to question your dedication to this hobby

And lastly, she doesn't ask you the price because you haven't bought the ring yet. If you want money to burn later, go for the "doorknob" option on the diamond

All in good fun,
Melf

combination of not enough throws and me giving it a tad bit too much down at inversion causing it to scrub speed and slow the plane down enough to slow rolling as well... with all the extra drag during the roll, it was enough to keep it stuck on inverted too long for my liking. I maxed out the throws, and give it minimal down during inversion and she now rolls very scale...
