    Was the boat fiberglass or aluminum? Guys fill up like that all the time here on the Snake. Mostly aluminum jet boats.

    In one of the videos, it sounded like a prop strike from water. Is that something for them to be worried about?

    Hah! I still remember my trig from high school. Sines/cosines of 30, 45, 60 degrees stuck with me. Unit circles were fun.

    Not hard to remember 10 and 15 degrees, either. It was fun figuring wind...

    I just think it’s amazing they put the code on the sign.

    At my airport you go through an initiation ritual and take an oath of secrecy.

    I ended up not making it. Tried to drive there and hit deep snow at 6000 feet on Lick Creek. Didn’t check because I’ve often gotten over in early June.

    I'm inclined to believe our eyewitness (or ear-witness) on the ground who reports the airliner being two miles from the ridge.

    Thanks Bill. Were you reading my mind?

    Not really…but the rough patches sometimes seem bigger than they are.

    Just from personal recollection, the Bridgers are high and approximately 7-8 miles from the runway. At 200 knots, it's not a lot of room. In the 70s, in crisp VFR, we often saw Frontier enter a left...

    Whoa! Miles of flat ground to the West, I've never seen an airliner turn east from BZN.

    My takeaway is reinforcing the decision to go around when things get tight. And not push things even in a competition.

    And I'm guessing even a Zenith dragging in can produce significant wake...

    The thing that haunts me is the right and left elevators jammed in opposite directions. And the torquing of the empennage.

    Could a wing separation do that? I have no idea.

    Maybe, but when I was growing up in Montana "backcountry" implied a day or more hike from the nearest settlement.

    This is something I’ve worried about even before the YouTube explosion.

    Low passes at fly-ins always seemed like flirting with regulatory trouble.

    Same here. I think I’d want to make friends with the homeowners before landing there. My own personal “straight face” rule would slow me from arguing that this is like back country operations.

    Practically, probably not because they accomplished the landing.
