    Tornado. On Long Island in November!

    To say this is odd would be an understatement. Very narrow path.

    Not sure. I think he, like me, was allowed to be first in line for the Covid vaccine when it came out. :-)

    It had sat for a long time. Anything is possible. Could even be a hand prop gone wrong with old rotten ropes. Or the brakes were defective. I’ll probably find out more today or tomorrow.

    That’s an ASTM requirement that applies to S-LSA only. The EAA write up doesn’t distinguish berweem “LSA” and S-LSA. A J3 Cub is an LSA. The rule does not apply to Cubs and such. An S-LSA is a a...
