A short hop from KLOU to SDF in I-NISIA a Savoia Marchetti S73. By pigeon we're talking about 5 miles, maybe. But this little hop with an old friend probably traveled 50 miles or so.;)

Thanks folks!! Frankly as a 60's GA and chopper guy I really never flew with 99 percent of all the "smart technology" that everyone now takes for granted.

 

I can't tell you how shocked I was flying an R-4 in the right, co pilot's seat, (you probably recall these planes as DC3s) I stomped on the rudder pedal and almost took the aircraft down to stall speed!!!! They called the rudder the "Barn Door" and it was so huge it'd kill a huge amount of airspeed almost instantly!!!:eek::eek:

 

TBTG the PIC expected this to happen as he knew I wasn't familiar with that plane!!!! He instantly dropped the yoke and called for a Go Around so we could build up enough speed to stay aloft!!

 

This old "friend" has many of the same flight responses. I'm so thrilled to learn to fly it in a sim, where I probably won't die if I mess up!!!!

Great to learn from a RW pilot!

On the other hand by the way, 'KLOU to SDF,' SDF in French means 'sans domicile fixe' ('homeless, I think in French) :):)

The more proper way to say it is KSDF. As in Standford Field. And both are very close to my home.

 

Thanks to al who looked at this series!!
