Russ's Grob Solo


Russ writes:
================================

attached are two pix for your amusement:
the picture of the grob was taken on the day of my solo, after the solo.
proves that the plane and pilot made it thru unscathed :}

the picture of the interstate s-1a was taken yesterday on my first
lesson in it. 1942 interstate cadet. tandem seating. 90 hp. no
electrical system (that's right! hand prop it.) but what a sweetheart to
fly! with a bit of help from the instructor i made most all my own
takeoffs and a good part of the landings on my first lesson out. gonna
be a fun plane to learn in.

Marc's Team Airbike


The first two photos show the Quicksilver two place ultralight that I took lessons in. I think I soloed after about 8 hours. The third photo was my own Team Airbike. As the common expression goes, "Divorce forces sale!". :-) It was fun while it lasted but I enjoy models better.

Savage Grumman Tiger


Here's some pictures of the airplane I learned to fly in. It was a 1976 Grumman Tiger owned by my step-dad who was also my instructor.

We were based out of John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Calif. It was great for learning to work the airspace and radios. As a point of comparison, there is more air traffic in the L.A. basin than in all of Europe.

Awesome shots Daren. John Wayne looks a bit busier than Ohkay Owingeh airport.

MarkJ and 1/2 Corsair


From our very own AMA District VIII VP MarkJ:

========================================

Here is me from the west texas warbirds meet in Abernathy texas. 50% corsair with about 40 hours on it. Neat plane but I am not going to try to fly in it.

Skip's Comanche and Taylorcraft


From Skip:
=========================

I haven't been doing much modeling lately since I have been
concentrating on full scale. Here are three photos of my full-scale efforts.

First is my Piper Comanche. A 1967 260B
Second is my Taylorcraft in the Utah Canyonlands. 1946 BC12-D
Finally my modeling effort: Welding the wing fittings on my Acrosport-II
biplane project.
