    This guy didn't miss the chance to photo-op with some alternative tires.... if you overlook the drag and empty weight increase, the cool factor is high. hahahahaha.

    What a surprise....big tires on an Alberta plane lol.
    Just like their pickups. Cool! Slats and double slotted flaps,
    that'd be a performer I bet.
    Nice picture.

    From Mike Rowe:

    Flying to Chicago with the parents, who are recently recovered from the flu. The doctor allowed them to travel, but advised them to take every precautionÖ

    Mom: Michael, will it embarrass you if we wear our surgical masks on this flight?

    Mike: Not if youíre performing surgery.

    Dad: Donít be a smart guy. Weíre strapped into a giant Petri dish. The doctor says these masks could save our lives!

    Mike: Only if your wife actually puts the mask over her nose.

    Mom: I donít like it over my nose. It fogs up my glasses.

    Dad: Then whatís the point? The germs will get up your nose if you donít keep it covered!

    Mom: But I canít see the Sudoku if my glasses are all fogged up!

    Mike: Heís right, Mom. If youíre gonna wear the mask, you might as well wear it properly.

    Mom: But if itís over my nose, Iíll be breathing CO2. Thatís a deadly gas, you know.

    Dad: Good grief, Peggy, do you think the doctor would tell us to wear a mask if it were gonna kill us!

    Mom: What do YOU know, John? Youíve got your string wrapped around your hearing aid!

    Dad: What?

    Captain: Welcome aboard, everyone. Weíll be flying into a pretty stiff headwind today, but weíre still gonna do our best to assure an on-time arrival.

    Dad: ďDo our best?Ē What the hell does that mean? Donít they always do their best?

    Mom: He sounds sleepy, Michael.

    Mike: Who, Dad?

    Mom: No, the Pilot.

    Mike: Heís not sleepy, heís just bored.

    Mom: I hope thereís a co-pilot. Do you suppose thereís a co-pilot up there?

    Mike: Probably. Where else would they put him?

    Mom: Do you think heís wearing a mask?

    Flight Attendant: Excuse me, can I get you two something to drink?

    Dad: Pardon me?

    Flight Attendant: I said, CAN I GET YOU TWO SOMETHING TO DRINK?

    Dad: Yes, please, Iíd like some orange juice.

    Flight Attendant: I beg your pardon?

    Dad: Some orange juice, please.

    Flight Attendant: I'm sorry, sir, can you speak up?

    Mom: John, take your mask off, she canít understand you.

    Dad: Iím not taking this mask off. She might be infected!!

    Mom: So I guess youíll be drinking your orange juice through the mask?

    Dad: Maybe I will!!!

    Mom: Well then, Iím not putting this stupid thing over my nose!!!

    Flight Attendant: I can come back laterÖ

    Mike: To answer your question, Mom, no - this isnít embarrassing at allÖ

    And I've seen a D6 pulled out of a local lake after the "driver" attempted to save time by crossing the ice instead of going around. Any operator would have known better, with the clacking tracks attempting to crack the ice on every link.

    But a Bully.... A bully runs pretty smooth. Well, until the ice is too thin I'd guess. Pisten Bully's are heavier than some may think.

    The Ryan M1 was the foundation of the Sprit of St Louis. Bill Kings son Andrew King restored one back in the late 90s and flew it in and out of Rhinebeck
