Busy day at the Eloy airport.


This 'little' jewel just rolled out of the paint shop here, test flown and the overhauled carb was giving some problems, sounded great but looked fantastic!

These guys were back again to do more test drops for a parachute company from UK.



And the usual Skyvan and Otter parade.

My shop on the 4th floor in Las Colinas looked out over the East
Side runway at DFW. Then they moved me to a shit hole in another
building.

Not sure if I posted this before, but since we're on Corsairs...

This guy stops by for fuel occasionally. He asked for a low approach after departing, so we cleared him for it. This what the security camera caught.
