Flying Saturday morning in gusty crosswind!


Wind up at 4 mile early Saturday didn't seem too bad so I headed out to the field arriving at @7:45 AM. Wind was blowing 90 degrees to the runway and gusty. Windsock was flapping furiously! I remembered in my R/C glory days flying in the wind seeing if I could hold the plane steady against a strong wind, stalling and coming around again to do the same, doing stall turns with the plane falling backwards.... too much fun I thought! So I got the LT 40 ready for flight and said to myself, "I ain't going home without a flight this time!". Takeoff was fine but the '40 was really buffeted once up there. Some loops against the wind, etc. Time to land.... Took me about 10 approaches to get a decent approach and then committed. By that time my hands were shaking pretty good. Not even sure the wind was responsible for the gyrations of the plane! Anyway.... got her down with just a broken prop. When I went to clear the fuel tank it was almost empty! Left at 8:30 without another flight needless to say. All I kept thinking is "where's Denny, where's Cloyce?" LOL

Clean up completed


Denny and I came out around 2:00 completed the cleanup of the office area. Yet to do is remove the bush.

We flew 3 gas flights each and a couple 3d's and 4d's. There was hardly enough wind to move the sock.

Monday maybe


Looks like 11/22 monday may be a good flying day. Winds down by around 11-12 to perhaps 2-3 and temps 62-70 over that time

Got some AM things to do around the house but full intent for mid day.
