  1. Ha! Music . Wife? Keep me from external activities? Naw I'm trying to keep an eye on Notar but he's a wiley know those egg-beater pilots - they just hover wherever they want...outa sight and all....STEALTH
  2. I wrote this procedure when I had a J. My hot start for a heat soaked Bravo is mixture full rich, prop full forward, throttle 1,000 rpm and no priming. It should start in a few blades.

    Richard Bristow Crash

    I met Richard years ago when he was selling a F modded to a J. I was interested in the plane but ended up not buying it. He was selling that plane to finance the RV he was building. I was at Petaluma airport yesterday but left about an hour before this incident. I'm glad I wasn't there. Best wishes to his family....

    Other news reports state he is based in San Diego. Anyone in that area know him?

    Mike, I don't know him and I'm not sure if he's based at o69. Does anyone have an N-Number?

    I flew commercial into SFO last night around 11:30. I was actually sleeping until they slowed to taxi speed but I can tell you the drive home was a bit hairy. Good thing my wife was driving because I would have nodded off and taken a bunch of something out! Too bad about this guy that hit the hill north of Petaluma airport (my home drone). It's a treacherous valley at night in decent weather. IFR departures, as Jerry pointed out in the ODP, is a climb straight ahead off of 19 EDIT: 29 (I was still tired this morning - missed the RW heading at my home airport - sheesh!) to 1,500' then a climbing LEFT turn to SGD. He missed the LEFT turn part in the OBSTACLE (it's a big 'un) departure procedure.
  7. I'd prefer (and voted) 4/14. I'll have gotten home from vacation 4/6 so I might be a bit tuckered out on 4/7.

    A little late posting here Joe but Welcome to o69. You've got a great hangar and on-airport maintenance shop. The company ain't bad either .

    Yeah - great seeing you guys. As discussed, lets try to do this more often and maybe a little more impromptu. And icing on the cake: I got to bounce my plane...numerous times! Man, you guys that didn't make missed a real good show . Mich and Wishbone were clapping when I finally pulled into the tiedown area .
