First I need to apologize to Slim Jim Arner and Adrian for taking so long with the video we got yesterday at North Point. I had some issues with getting the video from the Cannon, which my PC can't see to a Mac to a thumb drive to my PC only to find out the Mac screwed up the format.

The Chinese have a lot of saying for every situation and many of them humerus. I don't know many but the one that comes to mind in this case is hochi gaai tong ngap gong which literally translated says "Like chicken to duck speak" Or if you prefer syntactically correct English it says, "It is like a chicken talking to a duck." I prefer the awkward English myself because it conveys better the situation.

Ok we got some video for JonL, but it is all so good I can't just choose 20 seconds out for both Jim and Adrian. As soon as YouTube is done I will post it. When I say good I mean the pilots not the photographer

Looks good Jim. I've only viewed it from my phone so its hard to tell what HD looks like. How a bout a shot of each of us launching followed by the incident, and your wicked laugh when AD dropped his plane

Carlos, that video was shot at the North Flight park as you suspected.

I opened my garage today and saw the fresh snow, sadness swept over me... guess I should look at the positive side like you

The snow has been here for me and Carlos; especially me. I have had fewer repairs to do on my planes except for the Z bend I put in my B3 boom while filming. I am not going to release the video of that. Someone might be able to read lips.

For the most part I have been loving the snow for landings, but I am a bit hesitant on the launches.

Well, there are two types of people who leave an exam 30 minutes early: those who are really smart and can blow through it quickly and those who have no clue what they're doing and realize that staring at the page for another 30 min won't help them. Today I was definitely the latter...

not DLG related but, it was here in Utah, not long ago, and I think it a very interesting video of a crash landing.............. This people is very brave! and I am really glad the ending was a GOOD ONE for them!
Remember, every landing that you walk out, its a good landing!
