    My baggage door was shut when I taxied out, just not latched. My kit included a self-latch but it was too clunky to install. I have two small twist locks and this flight was without Dog, so no cargo...

    It Was a Matter of Time

    Took off today and nothing sounded or felt right. I couldn’t put my finger on it so at 1000’ I turned around and landed. Didn’t notice anything until I read a text from a neighbor that my cargo door...

    Has anyone ever had an intermittent strobe that was caused by the flash tube? Failure of electrons to reach the tube, yes, but in my life tubes either work or they’re done. No middle ground.

    Buy or make a bigger ring reinforcement, glue it on from the inside, cut out the fabric, paint and install a new larger cover. Or, if they work? Leave them there and save your money. Old-school...

    Mine are both Kavlico. I’d read on the RV site that some guys were drilling out the MP sensors. My old one doesn’t have a visible orifice in the stem, the new one does. $89 for new so not the end of...

    They’ve changed the sensor. Same plug cap but the housing’s different and the orifice inside the sensor is completely different. I must not have had the only one that was bad.

    Some of us remember Woods Air Service flying fuel in DC-6s. They used to like flying low through Lake Clark Pass on CAVU days. Quite a sight.

    That sounds like a fun project. I’ve always wanted a Cub Special. That one’s close enough. The flip-flopped SQ in the classifieds may be a steal at $60K, too. Pick your poison.
