Cool video Roger, looks like you guys had some neat flying weather. That is some pretty bare bones flying, nothing but a seat and some aluminum tube....

That Apache video has been going around, Tragic accident, but shows you how quickly things can get nasty when you get too confident. I should be on tonight, catch you guys later.

Thankfully in the Apache Accident no one was killed. But heads will roll eventually as that was a blatant display of stupid caught on video.

Well after having the Diamond 20 reserved for over three months to have it for Sun n Fun. I went out to the Airport to make sure it was fueled up and ready for tomorrow morning. I took it out of the T Hanger and put 9.1 gallons of 100LL in it and the sucker would NOT start. The Battery was down to 8.5 volts and it will not accept a charge. So thank God the Cessna 150 happened to be available so I switched planes for tomorrow. Now my daughter and I will fly down to Sun n Fun in the Cessna 150.

Alls well that ends well. I hope.
