    Minneapolis was fun, just under 15 hours in the Cardinal! Oil change tomorrow before the rest of this week's adventures. I'm sleeping in my bed one night this week, and I love it!

    The quickie is gone now. Must be in Dallas.
    This airport is really growing up. Today there wasn’t a tie down open. Mostly Cessnas, but a G5, Pilates, and King Air were taking up space.

    The hanger now. Gives a sense of how big that Corsair is.

    It belonged to Louise Thaden. I think it's a 66. I may have seen it doing a quick 1/4 mile down the runway this week.

    Yeah, the quickie is in Dallas now. By G5, do you mean a Gulfstream? That’s a big ol jet for that airport :eek:
    Pretty sure the FBO will let you take it as a courtesy car...at least they were talking about that a while back. I think it’s an awful idea, but it’s not my car :notsure:

    I was wrong. Just looked up the registration. It's a G-IV. I guess it just looked bigger parked next to the 152.

    The IV is still a big plane, but not nearly as big as the V. I’d be shocked if the ramp could handle a G-V there.

    Yeah. The G-IV was parked as far back as possible and would have been in the way for anything much bigger than a cessna to get by. The King Air and Pilatus were both parked on the other side of the circle, and they take up a bit of ramp space there as well. That's the second Pilatus (PC-12) I've seen there in the last week. Business is really picking up with the new terminal. Plus the east ramp was full. I think it was air out the hanger day on that side.

    That's the big gotcha with the larger corporate planes. They have the runway performance to get into some smaller airports but if you go below 5000' in runway length it can be very tough to find one that can support something like a G-IV or GV due to taxiway width and turns, ramp size, and ramp strength. There are pictures online of Gulfstreams sinking into asphalt on ramps.

    Sorry no pics ....


    Yesterday about 1030hrs heard the familiar sound of Military helicopters flying overhead . So I quickly head outside and right away see nine Blackhawks flying in tight formation maybe less than 1k ft

    They looked to be heading NNE towards the Lucerne Valley area . Since I live in the High Desert of Socal and close to Ft Irwin and 29 Palms I see alot of Military aircraft flying around . But yesterday's sighting was the lowest I've seen any Military aircraft flying around


    Anyone have an idea or insight what these Blackhawks were doing yesterday ??

    That many birds might be an insertion mission - so probably practice dropping a force into hostile territory. Isn't that where the training grounds are?

    Oh yeah, back when I was working line service I saw a 737 BBJ sink into the asphalt on a 100+° day. Seen a G-IV sink in many times in Arkansas as well. Just gotta use some thrust to get out, tug won’t do it if it’s sunk deep enough
