    It’s a great way to debrief your flights. Don’t think you’re gonna get internet famous and collect a paycheck from it though

    Yeah- I was mostly thinking radio debrief and some flight info. Maybe kiss up and get some STOL plugs to earn a whole $.38 a week on the youtubes...haha

    As a CFI, I recommend it to students who want to review flights. Excellent way to go over a flight more in-depth when you’re done. Especially radio usage. Only rule I give is click record and forget it during flight.

    Not a great day for TCAS effectiveness.

    I do have these that got sent over about 2007-8 timeframe from my dad. Still trying to find the pic I have of him refueling the first B-1 carrying the first bombs headed to the Stan from Diego to support Operation Jawbreaker.


    French Rafale. Getting gas from the US even though they declared months earlier that their CAS "would only to support French troops in contact"... "well then maybe you should go find French gas..."

    I sure enjoyed it! Some trivia; the Lao word for boat is: hua. The Lao word for flying is: bin. Yep, you guessed it, an airplane is called huabin or "flying boat" in Lao.

    Pretty amazing capabilities.

    Those are pretty much dead nuts accurate to the 787 P5 and P8 panels too, I miss working on that plane sometimes. Even with all the issues it had starting out it's a pretty neat airplane, the systems architecture on it is amazing.

    I lived on an airport that I was working at in college, my gutter was 6" from the runway clear zone for the new runway they built, and one of the only aircraft that ever woke me up was our based customers p51 doing a low pass. Badass!! The other was red bulls mig21 departing right outside my window.

    The woosh whistle of the cooling duct makes my hair stand up. Love the mustang.
