Unlike most threads which are full of opinions which invite more opinions from readers, this is a display of photos lots of us can appreciate despite not having anything to offer in return.

Please keep posting! I don't get a chance to do much flying these days so it is good to get these much valued reminders of what the view out of the window could be.

Four hours of flying today, landing at 5 different airports (plus home).

Passing KSBM on the way north. We came back and landed here on the way home. That's Lake Michigan in the background.


Approaching KMTW.


Searay at KMTW.


Parked at KMTW.


Parked at KSBM.


Cool static displays at the museum at KSBM.


We also landed at KETB, KHFX, and KUNU on the way home.

With lots of flying comes maintenance. Oil change, valve adjustment, new tyres, grease wheel bearings. I also bought and installed the newer version of the Sonex spinner. It is hollow and saves 1.6 lbs. We have flown over 180 hours in 16 months.

Winter is here. Oil temperature was only 145F on the last couple of flights. Time to adjust the cooling air inlet.


My last flight was to Camp Lake, 49C. 2100' of grass with obstacles. Made possible by cold weather. We each flew there solo.

One year ago today, I finished the 40 hour phase 1 flight test program of Waiex 191. That meant I was able to take my first passenger, my son and co-builder Adam. One year later we have flown another 155 hours. Tonight we flew from home to Dixon (C73), then DeKalb (KDKB), then home to Poplar Grove (C77). The photo is of the NIU campus where Adam recently earned his masters of mechanical engineering degree.
