Right much like glacier ops... jes' without all the sticky snow that wants to complicate one's way.

Seems to have mislaid his tailwheel at one point - being able to lift the tail power against brakes obviously has its advantages if you break your aeroplane in that way!

Why do I get the feeling that this guy will be found one day, wrapped up in the remains of his airplane somewhere on a slope which only sees people once a year. :ugh:

Well indeed that is possible but you have to admit that this guy knows his airoplane well, knows what it can do and seems to be a better pilot then most of us.

I guess he is now retired and is enjoying life to the full and just loves flying for the fun of it.

We all have to go sometime and I truly hope that he doesn't die by crashing. But think of the alternatives, cancer, stroke, althimers, heart attack etc. Better to go quickly while having fun than some of those conditions.

Just my thoughts, some may disagree. p.s. I don't want to go by any of those methods but I know I will sometime ( except crashing, fingers crossed )

The audio is a bit of a worry. Sounds like he accidentally spliced in the soundtrack from one of his "home groan" videos, where he had the camera hidden in the corner under a pile of jocks - an old trick.
