    Harve... I've never flown in a Piper Cub... Cessna 152's and 172's, with a Waco open ****pit biplane and a Robinson R22 helo for good measure...

    The Cessna 172''s service ceiling is about 13K to 18K, depending on the version.

    Flight lessons.. the highest I've flown is 5300 feet.

    That picture of the KC10, F16's and F15 is beautiful...

        LOL. I love it. There's been times where we've needed those. We used to have a real bad section of road under a railroad bridge that flooded, and I can't count how many times I watched drivers almost hit the firefighters directing traffic.

          Cherokee in a descent from 12.5 to landing @ sea level. 220kts GS over the outer banks into Kitty Hawk.
          Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

            Harve has been to Kitty Hawk... Orville and Wilbur used his tractor to retrieve the Wright Flyer!

                Gonz... the story evolved into Harve used a tractor to retrieve the Wright Flyer.

                You remember when the movie came out? There was that big outcry about Hollywood not sticking to the actual events. Now even the history books are all wrong on what really happened.


                Harve was still using plow horses in those days (1903). He didn't buy the tractor until 15 years later (1918).

                  HAHAHAHA. And perhaps it was the rotoray on his tractor that inspired the helicopter?

                      My mommy says I'm special.

                      And I was totally just on youtube hoping to find a some sparkwacker with a lawnmower equipped with a powercall siren Sadly, nobody has done that yet. Or at least nobody with a video camera.
