Here is some of the Ohio farmland.
You can fly low for a great distance with no powerlines or ( currently ) crops to avoid.

This is a really cool high wing 2-place at Barnetts Airport. I wonder what it is. It looks really cool.

Here is airport Management in the pilot lounge.
I think the one on the right is air boss. ;D
I feel pretty comfortable taking off and landing on grass strips now. It was very strange at first.
I still like taking off from a paved surface better but I like grass strip landings better.

Not the shot I ment to take but the reflection in the pre-rotator handle is cool.

Can you find the FWUL in this photo?

It is great to fly with a bunch of other craft. It really helps when everyone has a radio but you still have to make sure everyone knows where everyone is at all times.

It was beautiful here today, but I just didn't have time to go flying. I hate to miss a day like this. Looks like you had fun.

That fixed wing you asked about looks like a Pientenpol Aircamper. These were one of the first homebuilt airplanes, they were first being built in the 1930's I believe. all wood construction, cruise speed around 85 mph. They were designed to use a Ford car engine, a model A or T??? not sure. Most have C-65 conts out of old piper cubs. They have quite a following and if do you a search on aircampers on Google you will be surprised how much info you can dig up. People still build them from plans today, I saw one for sale on E bay or barnstormers not too long ago that was brand new ready for it's first flight.

That is cool. I would have to work on saying 'woody pusher' with a straight face though.... ;D
Someday I will get a FW and these are definatly my fav. so far.
I have an extra 447 provision 3 engine so I guess you could say I am working on it part-by-part!
