    Excellent presentation and a great outcome from a bad misfortune. I have worked with Jeff Plantz at KOSH but didn’t realize he had made this trip. It does not surprise me that he and Patti made lemonade out of lemons. Thanks SJ!

    At about the 32:30 mark there is a group photo in front of yellow plane. Do you remember that plane being a Bushmaster? That plane from what I see is the one I built in the 90's.

    That plane was owned by Ray last name?? It was an experimental Pacer, maybe a producer. I will look for other shots of the plane and post them here. Sorry for not having more details.

    The registration looks like you might have built it, Don. Would you mind posting a bit on the build? It looks like an interesting airplane!

    Of course.......Ray Huot. We enjoyed hanging out with Ray and doing the brushing on Peavine. We also did a fantastic group flight over the Bagley on a beautiful blue sky day.

    I remember him saying how much he was enjoying the airplane.

    Just got a chance to watch the presentation, thanks for doing that. What a wonderful trip.

    I was not at Brooks much during that time, was too busy flying elsewhere in the park, but I did get out there a couple times while you were wet parked upside down. Glad to get the story and glad it came out so well.

    Your experience is probably the most common aircraft incident we have at Brooks. As the east wind comes up, we move our plane operations to Brooks Lake. People that don't know that we do that regularly sometimes get pretty fixated on the Naknek Lake beach as a dropoff or pickup location, and unless your power-on sailing skills are pretty good, it can get exciting.
