    On his YouTube channel, I once tried to get a "guess the weight of the finished Scrappy" thread going on, but it didn't happen. My best guess was 2200 pounds at least. At some point, I don't care how...

    As luck would have it, when I got in the plane this morning, I noticed I had left the master on for about 40 hours. No problem! I have it about 8" from the EarthX, with a light pushrod going under...

    I still remember the Yellowstone fires of '88. Dan Denny and I were flying our Kitfoxes to Oshkosh. As I recall we were above the TFR but we were able to see the action going on below, and then...
