  1. In spite of IFR weather last month 10 people in 7 Mooney's flew into Flagler for lunch. A good time was had by these competent instrument pilots and passengers. The next event will be this Saturday, November 11, at Vero Beach (KVRB) at 11:30. Future Schedule: November 11, Vero Beach (VRB) December 9, Punta Gorda (PGD) January 13, 2018: Leesburg (LEE). EAA Chapter 534 will cook hamburgers and hot dogs in their hanger, and then we car pool anyone interested to Dave's home to see Ruth’s outdoor garden railroad. They usually have 6 or 7 G gauge trains running on her four loops and 1,000 feet of track. February 10, Bartow (BOW) March 10, Fort Pierce (FPR). Please e-mail Dave ( by Thursday to let him know if you are going to attend. He then calls the restaurant on Friday with an approximate head count. No one is obligated to come if something better comes up, or the weather is to daunting. Get out and do some flying!
  2. It's a simple courtesy to let us know what your reaction to advise is, Bert. School is now out
  3. No surprise, Mike! Well deserved and well done.
  4. Our last event was canceled because of Hurricane Irma. Most members reported minimal or no damage to their property with the exception of one member whose plane was damaged while flying it out of state. Unfortunately we all know who that is. Luckily no one was injured in the incident, and the Mooney will live to fly again. Our next event will be this Saturday, October 14, at High Jackers Bar & Grill at the Flagler Airport (FIN) at 11:30. Future Schedule: October 14, Flagler (FIN) November 11, Vero Beach (VRB) December 9, Punta Gorda (PGD) Try to email Dave ( by Thursday night to let him know if you plan on attending. He then gives the restaurant an approximate head count. No one is obligated to come if they can’t make it for any reason.. Hope to see you soon!

    I bet there are a lot of wings available, out and about. Heck, many of them are attached to old M20's that are selling for a lot less than $90K, and they might even have a decent and usable prop. I suggest you call Maxwell, flyboy. He has saved too many Mooney's to count!
  8. It's Raining Planes :-(

    As I get further away from GA, I haven't been posting all the fatal and mostly stupid pilot tricks I read about. Here is a M20C one that happened a few days ago:
  9. Sorry to tell you that it's far from over....we've been battling it for five years, and like a virus, it keeps coming back. No, the initial SS# was made public by a local hospital, NOT my name on MS

    Me too.....and I think you can do it!

    WOW.......and we wonder why the factory isn't a thriving business. Have you turned the plane over to anyone yet?
  12. Back when MooneySpace was starting up, I suggested to Craig that full name, physical location, airport base, airplane model and tail number be REQUIRED on our left side bio's. He didn't want to restrict access, so declined.... It seems to have worked out OK As for me, how do I know if BillC is a real name, and why he looks like a dog is beyond me?

    If a new wing is in your future, see what the factory will charge you. A salvage wing will, I think, carry the sigma of a salvage title.

    My power just came back last night, and clean water is back this morning. So sorry to hear about 61Z, Mike. A Mooney that flew as well as it looked. I have a feeling from everything you've said, that she will fly again, hopefully with you at the controls. Ft. Lauderdale did OK in most places. Lots of trees down and landscaping in tatters. 5 days without power was easy compared to the 14 days without power after Wilma. This time I didn't have a Mooney to worry about. Back to clean-up, both outside and inside. I trust you are the partner handling the insurance claim, Mike. Good luck!!!

    Scott, you're gonna love the MSE and you've been put on the FL luncheon mailing list. Note, he fly-in to LAL for today is off. Back in the day, the Air Force had me flying monsoon season missions in this crap and I had no vote in their decision. Where in FL are you located? Hope your ready for a visit from Irma. We're getting gusts to about 35 knots and light rain in Ft. Lauderdale right now. Looks like the west coast of FL may get hit hard, and the Keys are being hammered. Here we go.....
