Pay??

At least you get to fly, more than I can say. One day....

Pay?? People get paid to fly Pawnees?

I figure that finally someone else is paying for the airplane and I get the mental therapy time alone in the cockpit every weekend as most of my compensation. Landing short and departing on tow from a less than 2000' x 10' runway in high and hot Boulder has a way of focusing one's thoughts on the task at hand...

How do you know when there is a pilot in the room?

Yes, years ago it was the case. I must have walked around the terminal for an hour after my first flight as Captain with four new shinny bars.
Today many of us would rather change in the bathroom and go home incognito. Welcome to the days of unruly passengers, disgruntled F/As and locked flight deck doors…

Size matters...

Fun times in one back then and on the other nowadays:



The German Navy decommissioned my beloved BR 1150 Atlantiques last year... I guess after 40 years in service it deserved to retire...

I had the chance to see it in Eggebek some years ago. Where was that picture taken?

B-17

Not exactly my bike and a plane , But I did take the boy out to see this B-17 Flying Fortress at the local airport. Met a few vets that flew these in the war which was a big honor for us.

We were sitting around the FBO the Friday before the 4th of July weekend planning for that weekend's combined airshow and car show. Some guy with a hot rod was supposed to race a Pitts but he backed out at the last minute. The show organizer asked if I'd do it on a bike and another pilot offered up his Aprilia. Had a blast practicing it that night trying to get the timing right and it seemed to work out well during the show. I smoked the Pitts, so if we do it again next year I'll give him more of a head start.

First airhead BMW I ever looked at closely was parked about 50yds away from that B-47. It was an R75/5 and I believe it was in the summer of 1974.

My dad and I got a tour of the flight line at Plattsburgh by a Lt. Col. friend of my aunt. I got to sit in the left seat of an FB-111.

I was 13 and the world was never any cooler than that.

Crazy to be looking through this thread and see a plane I've actually flown. Great Shot

I don't have any video of the race the day of the show, but my wife took a couple crappy videos of us practicing the night before. This one is out of order because it starts with me returning to the start line then shows a "race". I left way too early in this one.
