  1. Gotta go WASS. Ditto NotarPilot's comments. BTW, where in AR?
  2. Wow! BTW, were these replaced for an expired lifespan? If so, what is the lifespan of the cartridges?
  3. True. I called them about it last week.

  5. I had the same thing happen to me last year. Turns out the leather (?) sleve/sock (just below the floor at the junction of the j bar and the actuating rods) was binding when the j bar was up (gear down position) VERY hard to disengage to get the gear up. Worth a look. HTH.
  6. Go to bed early Sunday night to get plenty of sleep. I'm sure you'll do well!
  7. Looking forward to seeing it in my C model. Uhhh, I mean your C model.
  8. Great vid. My old stompin' grounds...
  9. OK, now I don't feel so bad that I have a 100 hour inspection on my prop: "The NTSB had determined that the engine came apart when a fan blade separated from the engine, blowing the engine cowling apart. In its report, the Board describes the engine failure. “The airplane was equipped with two CFM International CFM56-7B24 turbofan engines. The CFM56-7B engine has 24 fan blades installed in the fan disk. The left engine failure occurred when one of the fan blades fractured at its root (referred to as a fan-blade-out [FBO] event). The fan blade fractured due to a low-cycle fatigue crack that initiated in the dovetail (part of the blade root), which remained within a slot of the fan disk.” Along with Southwest, engine maker CFM and Boeing, the FAA has already mandated a new type of inspection, an eddy current inspection (ECI) on top of the already required fluorescent penetrant inspection (FPI)."

  10. Agreed. My 'intersection' take off is 6,000 feet long...
