The NOAA forecast looks about the same until 11ish, then the rain is supposed to come in a bit more and a higher percentage chance then before. May still just be showery (hope, hope). I have to be back home noonish anyway so I may just sneak over in the morning with a couple of light wind planes and grab an hour or so on the sticks.
Congrats on the retirement Brad!

Not much going on in Corvallis, but I'm going to head over and see if anything happening on the hill. I'll probably be there until noon unless it's totally dead.

Full-up elevator is what AF447 maintained just before they belly-flopped into the Atlantic Ocean, and they had two jet engines running...
Your plane must be tuned quite nose-heavy.

Yeah, I noticed that too. I wonder if it's now (or maybe always has been?) closed between the day after Memorial Day until November 1st.

Is it farming or ranching or what, to close it down?
