Cubbin'

Got to go flying over the weekend. A calm morning was followed by a blustery afternoon so after shooting a bunch of landings at N57 with a 12kt crosswind, I wandered over to the lower hangers where I found my Instructor, Ron, who had taught me to fly, just as he was replacing the cowling after installing a new Tachometer in his recently re-built Piper Cub. He wanted to test it out right away. Right place, right time, I guess. I Got to cruise around western Pennsylvania at 1000 feet agl, squished into the front seat of this immacualte Cub. It handled the winds better than the Tomahawk i'd spent the morning in, and on a clear day as Saturday was, it was such a pleasure to fly. I'd love to own one some day....

It occured to me while were out floating around over the farmland, how special this airplane is.

My Instructor had torn the whole thing down last year with his partner in the airplane, Jim. Sadly, Jim had passed away before she was finished. At his funeral service, a local pilot circled overhead in a Cub while his good friend and Cub partner Ron read "High Flight"....

Oh! I Have slipped the surley bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never Lark, or even Eagle flew -
And while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

Once the cub had been completed, Ron's first passenger was Jim's wife who had come to the field to see it the Cub make its first take off since its resoration.

She loved it.

Jim, I dont know if they have blogs up there, but she's quite a machine, sir. You should be proud.

Hello! I really liked your forum, especially this section. I just signed up and immediately decided to introduce myself, if I'm wrong section, ask the moderators to move the topic to the right place, hopefully it will take me well... My name is Mary, me 29 years, humourist and serious woman in one person. I apologize for my English

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.

Just wanted to say hello someplace. Found [url=http://www.google.com/ncr]you guys through google[/url]. Hope to contribute more soon!
