  1. Wouldn't the airplane on the threshold of the runway have also called for a go around? "Tower Husky Nxxxx on the go around, there's an airplane on the runway" Clarence
  2. I can believe that it was not spotted on an oil sample, it's not the first time I've seen it. What's equally surprising is that it wasn't found sooner during oil filter inspection. Clarence
  3. In Canada we record our flights in a journey log book which forms part of the technical records for the aircraft. We record start to stop time for your pilot log and record time up to time down for aircraft total time. Clarence
  4. At my home field landing on 08, making the intersection in my Mooneys was easy, as are the RV4 and 400. Clarence
  5. Nice work on the felt sealing. I'd suggest some safety wire on the alternator tension arm bolts though. Clarence
  6. With the cowls off, carefully put your finger into the alternator housing and hold the cooling fan with your finger tip. With your other hand carefully turn the propeller, if you can hold the fan and turn the engine the drive coupling is slipping and requires replacement. Clarence
  7. A former instructor I know used to say "if you're not on the line, you're out of control" Clarence
  8. Tom, Actually the Mooney was running extra LoP because he was following a Comanche 400, which we all know leaves a huge fuel trail. Clarence
  9. A rag left in the intake system? Clarence
  10. From the Cirrus forum. The other day this guy in some old tin bucket pulled up and passed me all the while leaking fuel and corrosion dust everywhere, and he had to hand fly it. Just awful the things you see out there!! Clarence
  11. We've had the same thing happen here with an older pilot landing on the parallel taxiway. Luckily no one was hurt, just his pride. Clarence
  12. Friends don't let friends fly plastic airplanes, or play with plastic toys. Clarence
  13. Unless you get to fly a Comanche 400 with little fuel in cold air. Clarence
  14. It wasn't really steep, just a long slow incline. I would imagine the brakes are a hydraulic line lock of some sort. The lamp post is still bent. I looked for the picture I took but can't find it. Clarence
  15. Sadly this one will likely turn into a donor for the rest of the fleet. Clarence
