Off to the East!! I put enough cash aside to get at least to Gander Newfoundland. So we're on a IFR flight max. alt. FL235. With an extra pilot aboard for safety. Not perfect weather, but OK. With a slight breeze from the Southwest.

 

(Don't forget to click on the shots for description)

Nice set Michael! Lord Peerhoven usually enjoys payment for rentals of cheap beer and packaged Cheese Wheels!

 

I'm not renting I'm borrowing! And he used to keep me up to date with his credit card. I must be out of favor, I'm winging it on my own. And after all the time I spent looking for him, whilst he was down!!!????:mad::mad:

The visibility looks about what one could expect for this flight. A good flight and nicely done Michael. :cool: :cool:

 

Yes, RW weather. And that August haze!

Borrowing?? BORROWING!!! :mad: You have stolen it Sir!

 

Oh Jan! Jan are you off your medicine again!!?? What a hurtful accusation!!

 

Don't you remember you loaned me the Green King Air right after Mae Ling and I took you to the Emergency Hospital with Gastro-Intestional problems!!?? And how many times have you been warned not to mix Schnitzel with Limberger Cheese while drinking home brewed beer!!

 

I'm hugely busily trying to return your BORROWED King Air! You've struck me straight to the heart!!

 

If you'll just send me your current credit card info, I can probably get it home within a week or maybe two!

 

Your Good Friend,

Getting down in Gander? That shows a lot of pluck. :rolleyes: The subtlety of your puns is sublime. :p

Hope you can afford it. What with inflation even the price of down is up! :) -- Bob
