    I am yet to make it to Sun n Fun. Came close this year but it still didn’t happen. Wheels are turning in my head for Oshkosh though. That was a blast last year

    I recognize that place. KORL. Looks like an Orlando Aviators plane.

    Spur of the moment decision to take the Cardinal up to Minneapolis to watch the NCAA Championship. Departing in 10 hours! Got a connection for a private hangar since the FBOs are all booked up and not accepting any arrivals. I love it when aviators help each other out, if we didn't find a place to keep the plane we wouldn't have been able to make it happen.

    Indeed is, thats our flying club Cessna and those are the shade hangars on the Atlantic (old Showalter) ramp. Plane just got a new paint job and a new motor, still looks good and flies beautiful for 35 years old.

    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.
