Default What did you do with your RV this weekend (9/04/21 - 9/06/21)?

Flew up to the Eastern Slopes Regional airport, landed and flew back.

We've been invited by friends who have a cabin in Maine to come up and spend time with them there. They are 15 minutes away from the Eastern Slopes Airport.

So I thought I'd tool up there, on my own, and check out how to approach the place. The White Mountains are pretty neat. Picture does not do it justice.

The airport is to the right of the nose next to the pond

To the left of the nose - just above the prop - you can see a hill. I flew inside the hill into a left hand downwind approach to runway 32.

Next time, I may consider overflying the airport at 90 degrees to the runway in a teardrop approach to the downwind.

Default Long Time...

Rode home from delivering my RVX to its new owner with my long time good friend and fellow Veteran "Hollywood" (of Hotel Whiskey fame). Haven't ridden in the back of a Four since I can remember, "Wood" and I built our RV4's simultaneously back in the day and have many cool flights together, but with the 911 20yr anniversary coming up today was especially special.
Lest we forget.

What a blessing, thanks Hollywood!

A friend, an 9A builder, and I flew over to KGMU, Greenville, SC, for lunch at the Runway Cafe in my 9. An easy 46 minute flight. Shared a table with two other pilots. IFR there and back. Thought we would have to shoot the approach to get into our home field. But at the last minute all the stars aligned and we got in visual.

Flew our 6 from 52F to OTM (Ottumwa, IA home of Radar O'riley from MASH). Every year there is the National Antique Airplane Association annual fly-in. We enjoy it more than OSH. Check out the vid below and maybe we'll see you there next year!

Usual Saturday morning... 1.5 hours of IFR training.

Next weekend will be a more interesting report, weather permitting.

My 9A stayed in the hangar because it's too bloody hot at 52F. Airport not degrees

I flew to AZ82 from KWHP to go check out the area. On the way back I had to fly way to north to avoid the storms. It all turned up great. Than a friend sent me the live FlightAware picture. Pretty cool

You should have taken your 46 Luscombe to the Antique Airplane fly-in. Even though it is slower and doesn’t carry as much.
