    Depends upon what you are using for a fulcrum.
  2. AFAIAK you have the wrong plane for the mission. A 180 or a Maule would be MUCH better suited. Even my 140 would be a much better choice although you wouldn’t haul as much or get there as fast. My $0.02,

    I thought I had put my name in the hat a long time ago. Is there anything I need to do beyond KOSA in my avatar? Thanks very much for doing this Paul!

    Paint recommendations

    I recently purchased an F from Maxwell. He had it painted on the field in Longview. On Saturday, the Mooney MAX people came to my airport for a day at the museum. A number of folks came by my hangar to see the plane. I got plenty of serious compliments on the paint job to include a many thousand hour Mooney transition instructor who has seen lots of Mooney’s telling me that it is the best paint job he has ever seen. If you want to check out the paint job, call Don Maxwell at Maxwell Aciation and I expect he would be happy to give you contact information for the paint shop.

    64 or 65... That is the question

    What difference does it make? I have the same issue with my F. It is listed some places as a 65 and others as a 66. As long as it doesn’t change the plane in some way, I don’t care which it is.

    How many Mooneys do you have on your field?

    Yes, that was my thought as well. I pray that is not the case.

    Anyone hurt by Michael?

    I am leaving Monday for the Panama City area with a volunteer disaster relief organization. What airports are still open close to there that I could fly to and meet them in order to avoid a two day drive with the group in slow moving equipment hauling rigs? If I could get pretty close to the West or Northwest of there it would help greatly. Any local knowledge to offer? Edit: I looked at the TFR’s in Foreflight and both Panama City and Niceville have TFR’s. Anyone know anything about Brewton? It is outside the TFR. It appears to be inside of a pretty serious MOA surface to 17,500.

    Don, Jan, Paul and staff hit it out of the park again with the museum tour and the banquet. What a great event, great people at Maxwell and great Mooney owners.

    Great pictures Michael! Thanks for posting and since I was in one of the pictures, I offer my apologies for any camera damage. Yesterday was awesome and informative. Today will be fun and calorie filled. Hope plenty of folks come to the museum. Lots of magnificent, airworthy warbirds and homemade ice cream. My hangar backs up to the museum. It will be open and Maxwells creation N9512M will be there for your viewing. The ice cream will probably be served at the museum, but we might end up with it in our hangar. Either way, please come to Mount Pleasant and let us show some of our Southern Hospitality.

    Yes, the speakers and vendors were awesome. It was a wonderful day! I also look forward to tomorrow at the hangar and my sweetheart learning the right seat. My hat is off to Don, Jan and Paul for putting on this great event!

    Brittain Industries coming back

    No timeline available for products or services. I guess that puts me back in the mode of waiting for the Trutrak, that is unless someone knows a reliable rebuilder for the turn and bank based wing leveler.

    Mooney owners near College Station, Texas

    Greygoose, There is a convention in Longview starting tomorrow. Lots of information and lectures. It might be worth your while. For registration information look in General Mooney Talk for Mooney Roundup. Some of us from mooneyspace including myself will be there. I fully expect you would get more than one offer for a ride. We are always looking for new addicts.
