Default Jack

Jack the German Shepherd was on a two day, eight leg transport from Brownsville, TX to Newport, RI. He spent the night with a foster in Chattanooga, TN where I picked him up (KCHA) this morning and flew him up to Kingsport, TN (KTRI). At 72 pounds, he is definitely the biggest dog I have flown. I think I have found my upper limit!

Photos are here. Had a great time hanging out, eating, talking, checking out airplanes, and meeting other folks.

Dan, You are doing excellent work! That is definitely bigger than Tanya has moved. Imagine that good dog getting frustrated with your flying skills . It seems that a lot (most?) transports are moving south to north.

Fueled it up and updated databases in anticipation of flying to the lake after an OT shift. Wx ended up being fly-able but horrible lake weather so I stayed home and did other projects.

Yeah - he is tethered back there - but it wouldn't be good if he really went nuts. 62 dogs/puppies so far and only one that was even a little bit of a problem.

The South seems to always have full shelters and lots of strays. Lax or non-existent neuter/spay laws contribute. Northeast and Midwest are definitely common destinations for these dogs. Interesting though, is that a common destination I and some others around here have with pups is central FL. Tampa/Orlando seem to be hot spots for rescues accepting dogs from other areas.

Waiting for the humidity to subside in Michigan so I can finish painting my fuselage, I switched to the wings, doing fuel tank testing and designing/building my wing rotation system. I think I'll share it in a thread, but here's a teaser photo.

Default Preparing to give three forums at AirVenture

Preparing to give three (3!) presentations at Oshkosh on the Expanded Envelope Exercises®, plus the contest on Tuesday night. Didn't like the videos I had of the stalls in turn exercises, so went out to re-shoot them. Lighting was less than optimal -- too early in the day, and the sun was behind a high cloud -- but the flying part at least came out alright.
