I may be grounded, but I can still dream...

As of this writing, my trusty bird is down for it's annual inspection.
(Oh, I can hardly wait for that bill..)

So I figure that this is as good a time as any to dream about the next plane I hope to get.

I saw this Boeing Stearman at the Thunder over Michigan airshow this past summer. It was love at first sight.
It flies about as fast as my Cessna, and goes about as far on a tank of fuel.
They also do other cool stuff that my Cessna cannot, as this video which I clipped from Old NFO's site demonstrates.

How cool is that?

So I lose a back seat that I hardly ever use. Murphy can learn to sit up in the front cockpit, right? I'll even get him some goggles and a leather flying helmet.

Anyone know where I can get a propeller synchronizer set-up for an M60?

  1. LOL, I could just see that... Of course you would need windshield wipers for all of Murphy's drool... :-)

  2. With the goggles and the leather helmet, Murphy would be all set to deploy to go shoot down the Red Baron.
