Are you set up for night VFR? I see what looks like the RAF fuel gauge, but do you have night illumination for the other instruments?
06-30-2004, 08:05 PM
Fantastic. Every shot is tops. Good catch on the deer.

Stan , your pictures still seem to have the edge on the others for quality, maybe its the time of day with the lighting but you have great use of light and shadows and compose the ground angles with the shots. Great shots.

Ok guys I'm going to try my hand at this picture stuff.

1st picture was trying to get to Bensen Days 2003. Just 7 miles ahead it was IFR so we had to turn back. This was the last time we flew her before Randy Coplen bought her.
Next ones are pictures of where I work and St Pete Clearwater airport across the street.

Paul: I am set up for night VFR. My guages are all lit nicely..except the carb temp gauge is a little dim..but still readable.

Great stuff John and Lloyd. Proud of ya.

This is a map of the south island of New Zealand. The lower marks show the cross country flight the Santa Mick and Paul Bruty did, the upper markings show where Lloyd and myself forced Santa Mick to hand over RAE to our hands and the route we took to fly home. Hope this is of some interest.

Thanks for the pic's of Clearwater .... now I am home-sick for florida again!
If you see Tim Bright and his Navion (with the red nose) tell him Hi for me.
I live up here near Mentone now. Have not been able to fly at all this summer....sure do miss it.

Be glad to tell him. I think he's in one of the hangars on the far south end of the field. I'm in one of the new ones up by the gate, don't get down there much.
Coming down for a visit soon? Stop by hangar I5 If I'm there we'll share a cold drink.
