It's #FLYDAY Morning.
Welcome to another great #flyday  

Say hello to my little friend.

The 163rd Fighter Squadron 'Blacksnakes' were in town to do a flyover for a football game.

The local airport is a fun place to hang out.

#Flyday comes early... Again
Christmas is approaching so I am going to try some social app called IRL... We’ll see how that goes.  But I don’t want to miss out on too many #Flyday celebrations.

I have a few good shots of the Ford Tri-Motor and it is a uniquely cool aircraft.  199 were built. 18 still exist today.  Only 8 of them are airworthy.  My son got to take the controls of this one during flight.

One thing cool (in a spine tingling way) is the motor mounts look really flimsy.  You would expect the motor to pull itself off the wing.  But the planes were/are very sturdy, even if they look like they were slapped together from scrap parts.  Notice the corrugated wing.  Also, if you look at the largest engine strut you will see 3 glass dials.  They put the engine gauges on the engines.  The pilots had to look outside to see the readings(?)

The Ford Tri Motor was the first to go trans continental. If you Google EAA Ford Tri Motor you can find a website about this specific plane.

Even Google Maps is getting into #Flyday  
This is a screenshot from Google maps.  Notice what looks like an MD-88 (passenger jet)?

If you are interested, click the link to see if you can pull this up on your map:
https://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=&daddr=40.405433,+-80.111394&hl=en&geocode=&sll=40.406201,-80.110191&sspn=0.006609,0.009645&vpsrc=6&t=h&mra=mr&ie=UTF8&z=17&iwloc=ddw1

Anyone have any thoughts about the type of aircraft? MD-88? Yes, no, other?

It is going to take a sharp eye, I think, to specifically ID this plane.  When I googled the image, most returns were a McDonnell Douglas design.  I just went with the MD-88 as it was not too old nor too new.

Just taking a few minutes of looking and the possible suspects are:
DC-9
MD-80, 81, 83, 87, 88, 90
Boeing 717
Take a pick...

There's No Day Like #Flyday !
The EAA's B-17 Aluminum Overcast taking off on a cold October afternoon.  I took the picture so, obviously, I was not onboard.  My son was.  He had helped out at the event over the weekend. The old EAA guys thought it was cool that a young buck was interested in flying so on one of the last flights of the weekend they told him to climb aboard.  He did not get to handle the flight controls during this flight... That chance would come the following June when the EAA guys put him in a 1929 Ford Tri-Motor.  He did get to fly that.  Some people have all the luck.  The rest of us live vicariously through them.

Attention Everyone Reading This Message
*Today is #Flyday *
Please return your seats to the full upright position... er, wait.... We don't do big commercial sardine can stuff here.  Buckle your seatbelts because we may throw in a barrel roll, stall or just cruise inverted for awhile.
[Where was I?]
Oh yes, #Flyday  
This is another shot of/from the Ford Tri-Motor.  This pic was taken by my son from the co-pilot's seat at about 2100 feet altitude.  After he took this picture, he took the flight controls (sorry, but it's just too cool to not brag a little).
Enjoy the view...

#Flyday  ... #Flyday  ... #Flyday  ... It's #Flyday  
(Well, in a few minutes, anyway.  But I'm going to be busy tomorrow and didn't want to miss out.)
This is the cabin of a 1929 Ford Tri-Motor (I'm sure it was 1st class in its day, huh?).

Remember Pearl Harbor
#Flyday December 7

Some interesting information:
There were eight civilian light aircraft airborne during the attack...
(As quoted from this list: "Aerial Vets of 7 Dec 1941", page 97-98 in Stan Cohen's EAST WIND RAIN (Missoula, MT: Pictorial Histories Pub, 1981, revised 1991, corrected 1994, renamed ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR in 2001 edition):

Aeronca "Tandum" Gambo Flying Service; Mrs Marguerite H Gambo, instructor
Interstate "Cadet" Andrew Flying Service, Miss Cornelia Fort, instructor
Aeronca "Tandum" Hui LeLe Flying Club, Tommy Tomberlin, instructor
Aeronca "Tandum" Gambo Flying Service, Roy Vitousek, renter
"unknown type" (thought to be a Piper Cub) K-T Flying Service, M.F. Poston, student solo
"Waco" (biplane) K-T Flying Service, Robert Tyce, instructor
"Cub" K-T Flying Service, Clyde Brown, renter
"Cub" K-T Flying Service, Henry Blackwell, renter

And from another source (sorry, this isn't a term paper... if you need accurate footnotes... you're out of luck)

CIVILIAN AVIATION
The training schools, etc. involved that day were:
Gambo Flying Service
Andrews Flying Service
K-T Flying Service
Hua Lei Lei Flying Club

(1) K-T Flying Service had four J-3 Cubs airborne.
(2) Andrews Flying Service had its Interstate Cadet airborne.
(3) Marguerite Gambo [later Ma Wood] owned several Aeronca Tandums [the words used on the Bill of Sale]. She rented one that was airborne [plane exists today in Hawaii]...She had a student up in another.
(4) Ma Gambo sold one Aeronca Tandum to the Hua Lei Lei Flying Club. The club plane was up with instuctor and student [plane exists today in Texas].


Although I posted this picture before, it is relevant to this post as it is a Piper Cub.

Welcome back to #Flyday  Afternoon.
Last #Flyday  was during the holiday... so no pictures then.  This is a Cessna 172 cockpit.  You can view the image in full size to see the altitude... Maybe you can even read the GPS well enough to get an idea where this flight took place.

Yes, the image is a little blurry but it was taken from the backseat during flight.

#Flyday
An IAI Gulfstream G100.  If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

This one is parked at the local airport and belongs to a local company.  _If_ you ever get the chance to fly somewhere on a corporate jet out of a small airport, DO NOT pass up that chance.  You park by the terminal building walk through the fence and on to the plane (100 feet from car to plane).  The crew closes the door behind you and less than 5 minutes after stepping out of your car, you taxi down the runway.

No metal detectors, no security checks.  One of the crew takes your bag(s) from your hands and puts it onboard (no lost luggage).  You will never ever want to fly commercial again... Even if it is 1st class.
