    Old, Bold Pilots...Ed Erickson Nominated for the MN Aviation Hall of Fame

    Im sad to hear of Ed's passing. I flew with him a few times in the Albatross, TBM, B-25 and other aircraft during his days at AmJet. He was a truly skilled pilot & a great guy. I have no doubt that your efforts will pay off, there would be no one more deserving to be in ANY Aviation Hall of Fame!!

    Suggestions for Maximizing Life of Alaska Bushwheels?

    Randy, just use the grass until MAC says something about it, then plead your case, what can it hurt? If your over this way stop by the OLD Jane's tower, all we have is grass & it's un-manned 24/7 :)

    Small outboard motors

    I saw a bracket forsale once that attached to the rear spreader, think it was for one of the larger displacement EDO's. Rigged to the water rudder cables so you could steer from inside.

    Question: Balloons and Parachutes

    "The pilot was contacted by radio, and the crewmen, who observed the storm on their cellular telephone, advised the pilot that the storm was "getting big very quick."

    Question: Balloons and Parachutes

    I cant answer that, but im amazed he tried to climb OVER a T-storm instead of just landing it... Also i think you need a valid 2nd class med to fly ballons commercially, not a 3rd that expired 15 years ago.

    How Much?

    As far as she knows, i have not purchased much of anything new in years, except the recent 2nd plane. 'that was always in the gun cabinet' or 'it was in the hangar' usually works. The new floatplane related items are impossible to explain away. :)
