    Out-of-State Purchase Transaction

    Exactly ,or simply drive it home without tags or any license plate.When pulled over ,show the signed and better yet notarized bill of sale to cop.Have Insurence binder showing vin # and address for your state.Most of the time ,the cop will let you slide but a nonregistration ticket is a non moving registration and cheap to correct in all 50 states.25 bucks in Calif big deal

    Mooney in the water in Palo Alto

    Pilot was based out of placerville and had taken the mission to pickup patient in Redding 150 miles north.Visabilty due to smoke out of Pville and down the valley and especially arround Redding had to be a stressor for a single pilot.Ad the patient loading ,takeoff in low vis plus 250 mile flight North into class B airspace and short GA airports difficult to pick out due to ground clutter.Neither Palo Alto or SAN Carlos exist on a lot of bare land and don't really look like airports till you are right on top of them.locals familiar to them use local landmarks like sloughs or prominent buildings to set up for the landing pattern.Since these flights have to arrive and depart timely to make scheduled appointments there is pressure to complete the landing on time.Add the runway condition to the accident chain and it is remarkable that Angel Flight has not suffered and accident in 75000 mercy flights.RIP to mr Spencer ,he has helped a lot of people .
