I resemble that remark!

but seriously, we all can land at Cajon with a little practice and some coaching by the experts (TFLG and Carl Maas). What I've gleaned from them is that different conditions can lead to different landing strategies.

for the lower flying area, big air can allow you to "kite" the plane in from a high and deep approach, more normal or lessor lift conditions won't allow you to go as deep.

I'm already a bit out of my league here and will allow Brian/Carl to opine or give instructions.

Greg (who is convinced anyone and no one can land at Cajon)

PS- when we were up there in 50 mph winds everyone was praying during landings... even the experts.

Sometimes when I've been up there, I've just done landing practice (with a foamie.) It's fun!

At least if it comes apart on a "cajon landing" I can put it back together.


As long as I can find all the pieces...

Interesting about Zero...Zeke...Just looked it up. So...Zeke was the "official" allied reporting name (code name) for what the Japanese designated as Mitsubishi Navy Type 0 Carrier Fighter (零式艦上戦闘機 rei-shiki-kanjou-sentouki). Hence, Type 0 = Zero...at least according to wikipedia.
