LOL Well this Trumpet's supposed to be putting out over 130hp so she spools up pretty quickly and goes pretty fast.

Last time I landed on Annette there was a burned up fuselage beside the runway. That was an odd visual as the plane coasted by. Made you wonder if it might've been a problem on take-off?
Yeah, there are local police and I've been wondering what they'd do if they catch me speeding. I've been asking around and been told that it'd prolly just be a warning. I didn't mention how fast I might be going tho. The day I took these photos a cop got on the road right in front of me so I decided it was a good day to slow down and take some pictures. Not sure what the locals think of me wearing a one-piece with an aero-hump on it. They aught to be getting used to seeing me here with some odd toys tho.

The runway on Annette used to see a LOT of usage as there wasn't an airport in Ketchikan till the '70's. All the planes headed north refueled here during WWII and the Coast Guard used to have a base here too. My dad worked up in the tower here back in the day before going up to Anchorage to work FAA there.
