After I went to the site, then took another look at this photo - I think I was wrong :worthy: . Wow.... wouldn't want to be on that beach! I can only imagine how much sand gets kicked up by one of those guys dropping in like that.

Seaplane rating is great if you own a seaplane, or in the unlikely event you are able to rent one. I got the rating several years ago because my neighbor two doors down is a CFI and owns a 182 on floats, and I was about that close to picking up a T-Bird ultralight with floats. Those would be great for summer and winter flying off the lake. That didn't happen though, and now I'll be darned if I can find anyone that rents seaplanes here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

Learn something everyday don't see that kind of stuff flying around the midwest.

There are 4 seaplanes on our lake, including my CFI neighbor (who got rid of the 182 and now has a 172 on floats) and there've been two crashes here in the last three years. Unlike boating, glass water is deadly for seaplanes.

People actually hang on the fench at the beginning of the runway when the heavies take off. They get taken off their feet. I was speaking to a local who said the runway is short by a few hundred yards. They are extending the runway into Simpson Bay because jets have to veer hard right after leaving the strip to aviod a mountain.

Here is a pick of what the sand looks like when a 757 is taking off...you can imagine what a heavy would throw up.

Man, that site is full of incredible photos. The shots from St. Marteen are something else. It's amazing how low they come in. But runways near the water are not that uncommon either. Hong Kong, Korea, San Francisco, Vancouver..... the one at Powell River, BC really blew me away.

Cool shot from HK. The old HK airport was a trip, the 747s bank in and drop rather quickly into the middle of the city - it was absolutely the coolest approach to ride. You could look in the windows of apartment buildings as you went by them.

Now they have a new airport built on a manmade island, I havent been there but it's state of the art stuff.

How about Osaka, Japan? Also a manmade island with a LONG bridge. At one time was the longest single building in the world. Jacks underneath the thing are used to raise/level the structure regularly because the island is sinking! Discovery had a cool show on that one too....

That probably puts out a huge wake at 20 mph. I'd need some swim goggles to keep the prop wash from blinding me. That would be fun to see, even more to try. There is a pic on another forum, a wakeboard boat with Grumman Goose I believe.

This is a Thunderbird (F-16), who tried to pull a loop right off the runway at a airshow, and didnt have enough altitude. He pancaked his plane on the runway 1/2 second after he ejected. Needless to say he doesnt fly for the Airforce anymore.

I have a movie file from the cockpit camera of this crash. Really cool stuff, but I cant upload a link to the site. It doesn't alow video files. Any idea's on how you guys can check it out?

A real pic taken by a photographer at a soccer game near London, authorities claim the planes did not get closer than the minimum 1000 foot vertical separation to be classified as a "near miss", DHL (the other plane is JAL 777) is investigating.

They sure look close to me... it makes for quite a pic.

They may have been legal. Personally, I don't think so, but if they were, that pilot in the second plane probably had one heck of a ride due to the wingtip vortices.

This happened at Preveza Greece, a Beligan pilot hit a flock of swallows, perhaps they were African Swallows.... but anyway a USAF E-3 flew through a flock of geese on take off and crashed a few months before this so I guess the guy decided to knock it off after he passed S1.

There were no serious injuries and the plane was a complete loss....

No kidding! Planes everywhere around you in the sky. Just stay behind the guy in front of you and hope the guy behind you and the faster planes passing above don't run into you. They had us landing on the taxiway while two other planes were landing simultaneously on another parallel taxiway and runway and the planes in front of us weren't even clear of the runways/taxiways yet.

Had a ton of fun with the airplane, but literally made the choice when I bought the lake house.

No kidding! Planes everywhere around you in the sky. Just stay behind the guy in front of you and hope the guy behind you and the faster planes passing above don't run into you. They had us landing on the taxiway while two other planes were landing simultaneously on another parallel taxiway and runway and the planes in front of us weren't even clear of the runways/taxiways yet.

My last trip, there were three of us nicely spaced on the final approach when a wally cut in front of my plane, and not only did he cut in front of us, but couldn't hold speed or altitude. Controller landed the first plane, made the AH go around, asked me to land at the 1/2 point, and asked the last plane {show plane} if he could plant it on the numbers, and he replied affirmative. We landed simultaneously and both received good jobs!

There is nothing like flying into OSH :)

First trip, friend who happened to be a flight instructor is sitting next to me, and another friend who became a flight instructor sitting in the back. There was a gear up landing shutting down the airport. They have provisions for this, which is for all inbound airplanes to circle a fairly large lake CCW at a specified altitude and speed. Must have been 100 planes circling this lake CCW, and 2 circling CW. The instructions for flying to this event are several pages long. That's why I'm absolutely amazed to read things like this exchange as reported by AVWEB.com

AirVenture, some pilots just don't get it.

On the return home Saturday I heard the following exchange as I headed southbound passing Madison, WI. Warrior 98765 was heading north and already receiving a Flight Following Service from Madison Approach.

Warrior 123: Madison, Warrior 123. Can you tell me if there is a NOTAM or anything for getting into Oshkosh?

Madison Approach: Say Again ...

Warrior 765: Yeah. Can you tell me if there is any kind of special NOTAM for getting into Oshkosh today?

[Long Pause]

Madison Approach: You're kidding, right?

Warrior 765: No, my [garbled] was out and I couldn't get anything before I took off. Can you tell me what the arrival procedure is?

[Longer Pause]

Madison Approach: (speaking slowly) I suggest you land before you get there and get a copy. There's one here at Wisconsin Aviation ... or Middleton is in your 10 o'clock.

Warrior 765: Standby ...

What kind of a plane is that?? It's like a scaled down Pilatus with more style. Ok, maybe more like a Piper Mirage with more style (more comparable elevator placement).

That is an Epic LT. visit www.epicaircraft.com

Faster and bigger than an EADS Socata TBM 850. Slightly smaller than a Pilatus PC-12, but waayy faster. I love the Pilatus as it is a truck. I have equal time in both and prefer the Epic!

I'll post some more pics of some of the other birds in the stable.

yah, that guy is a stud. if you're into that kind of thing, you should buy his book i got mine signed by him at the reno air races. he's there every hear. "his" plane, ol' yeller, did pretty good this year, too. and their spare rudder (borrowed by another plane) had some adventure of it's own. that plane had a mayday after a blown engine. THEN, the O2 bottles blew up while being refilled in the pits! anyhow... am i rambling??? :D

Is Bob Hoover still flying????:confused: Man he must be ancient if he is. I have seen him 3 times many years ago and met him once. My dad was a pilot and we used to attend alot of airshows. Hoover's flying was always fun to watch. He used to fly the P-51 for part of his show, then later go up in his Shrike Commander and do the no-engine routine. He would climb up and shut the engines down, and do his aerobatic routine and land and retain enough speed to taxi up in front of the crowd. His trademark at the time was to always fly in a full business suit and wear a panama hat. My dad was always so impressed by his flying. We met him at the hotel we were staying at. my dad sat and had a few drinks with him talking flying. Heck of a nice guy too. Thanks for posting that Ryan!:)

he doesn't fly anymore. was a big to do... i saw the shrike routine a few times. pretty much his most famous routine. you're right about him being a great guy. even when i was having him sign my book, he asked me questions about my flying and took the time to talk. really down to earth. he does still wear the hat. he was in a yellow jump suit at reno last year. must be from the ol' yeller days.

I have a picture of me standing next to his shrike commander from about 22-23 years ago. Its in my kitchen in a big collage of family pics. I also have one of him in his business suit, panama hat, standing on the yellow P-51. very neat memories. Thanks!:)

I remember flying over Michigan in our 172 at 9500 feet on the way back from Oshkosh several years ago. It took us forever to get up there because it was a hot August day and the plane would barely climb at that altitude. We were fully loaded too -- 3 guys and camping gear. The ATC guys were getting a little impatient. :rolleyes:

the planes are NOT as low as they look, but still a scary feeling being there. It feels like you can touch the plane. You can see the people and pilots.

I took this picture a few years ago in St. Louis. My Dad always told me stories that he heard that the helicopter that he was the crew chief for in Vietnam made it back to the states. I did some search and I found it. It is taken care of and flown by these guys. http://www.armyav.org/

My Dad was not sure it was the same Helicopter until he was able to get close and look in the back seat and see the bullet hole that he patched.
