haha, I love my Catalina for the snow days, I was hoping these tires were large enough for plowed parking lots with a light dusting of arcticness

A friend of mine got my flight on video today. It's heavily edited since he didn't have a zoom lens so instead of looking at a tiny dot, I just kept the fly-bys.

That's so nice, Aros. Love the scale looking features that FMS is decking their planes out with lately. I'm gettin' that ol' familiar feelin' again. Where in the world am I going to put it? Do you think the wing is as stiff as it should be, or is it just stiff enough to get by without doing a bunch of work on it?
