Here are my photos from the last week or so.

The first ones are from the Porter near Mt. Saint Helens. Then form our session in Valdez,AK, I didn't take any tonight because my computer connection was choppy as it was.

I have watched that video a couple of times before, but even this time, I still watched the whole thing. I just can't get over this video. It is amazing.

Well HT we are over due for a good GA flight from somewhere to somewhere, I'll try and put one together for tomorrow night. Tonight was fun as I wanted to try flying below Sea Level and the best place to do that is the Dead Sea in Israel. So that was fun. here are some shots.

I love the colored smoke! That is really cool.

As nice as it would be for everyone to have the same planes, you have to admit, it makes for funny sessions sometimes.

Alright, I will set the pre-heater and axillary power unit on the 206 for tomorrow evening. It is COLD out here. Right now the temp is below freezing.

I will be on around 5:00-5:15 ish and we were going to have our GA flight

Just a thought we could start at Columbia CO (022), CA on runway 11/29 which is a turf runway and then fly up to Placerville(KPVF), my local airport. It is about 44nm and wouldn't take too long but the scenery is fantastic, I think Roger and I did this one before.


Or we could start at Spaulding airport(1Q2), the runway is RIGHT on the shoreline of Eagle Lake and fly to Trinity Center (068) which is right on the shore of Trinity lake. This one is about 87nm so it is a bit farther.
