Sad...

It's a great flying day today. I hear plenty of other aircraft overhead. Tomorrow is supposed to be even better.

My plane's sitting in the shop, waiting on two new bearings for the horizontal stabilizer to show up.

Few things suck more than knowing that you can't fly even if you want to.

  1. No place close had them in stock?

    Did it show up in an inspection, or was the elevator feeling sloppy?

    1. Annual inspection. Would have been done last week otherwise.

  2. Better to catch it on the ground than in the air!

    Tru Dat! My little slice of Paradise, sits on a low level route, so I get buzzed regularly by T-38s out of Randolph and Laughlin, and an occasional flight of C-130s. Evidently, my land also looks like it might be useable as a emergency landing as somebody with a Pitts Special and a Stearman torment me with aerobatics demonstrations on any given decent weather Sunday.

    1. Soon as it's fixed. But they're closed Sunday and Monday.
