Oh, while we're talking wishlists, here is mine, a turbine Otter

Yes, I kinda get flustered thinking about these babies

Must be part of your super-secret double-naught spy work with your low-level FEMA clearance and (snicker) Texas Security License, yes?

Is that a Zenith? Yeah, I will Google it...

Yeap!

I want the 4 seater so bad. Either floats or the offroad tires. Hmm...

Wow, look at how far down the flaps go. Those barn doors must create a lot of drag at that angle. Ailerons come down with the flaps too.

The boarding steps don't look very aerodynamic. Its not built for speed.

The twin Otter is back in production. Maybe Viking Aircraft will make you a new single Otter to get you unflustered.

Nice Zenith. Ugly but very cool! I'd love a STOL kitplane or similar.

Ski-plane drifting

Pretty sweet, huh? Nope, not speed. Lots of lift with those things! I will use it to fly between my vacation lodge and favorite fishing holes in Alaska

This one would be somewhat more aerodynamic and sleeker, but getting it on the ground may be a problem.


Here is another cool shot:

Mostly VFR with scattered IFR... flying in cloud with the doors open...





Looking for lightning strikes as they happen...





The moneymaker...






Leaving a perfectly serviceable aircraft to spend the night with bears...






And the forest is saved again...





Next flight out will be in the morning...

Can someone tell me how to post pictures? I've got a few that I could share. In the late 80's I flew a King Air based in Cambridge Bay, NWT....now called Nunavut. Their were endless photo ops and I was too foolish to take advantage of my time up there and didn't take any pictures.

Looking back, the most fun I had was when I was ripping around in a C185 on floats or flying up North.

Sadly, for all of us, that prick Osama and his band of assholes fucked it up for all of us. I can't even take my child in the jumpseat because it's considered a security threat. In the past it was a lot of fun inviting people up front for a chat and a look around.

It's still fun flying airplanes for a living but the regulators have taken a lot of the joy out of it. I'd like to get the wonder back that I had as a young fellow, blasting around and landing in fields and on roads, doing aerobatics. just having some fun. Ya know?

Thats the big attraction to motorcycling for me. No voices in my helmet, I love the backcountry and sailing down the roads with some buddies and exploring the old roads that people don't use any longer.

Keep the pics coming!

Great thread.

Garrett
