  • Hugh Wiedman Great event, Sir. Wish I was there. It's the poops when individuals avoid taking responsibility for fault. Clearly, climbing over the back of another aircraft is poor piloting whether one is final or not. A picture is worth a 1000 words. The 'spotter' needs his eyes examined and the offending aircraft owner should have offered recompense of some kind, IMO. I do like your attitude, Hugh and with that open parking slot in your hanger, I'm thinking you'll find a way to fill it. Best, Steve
    Captain: Got any ideas?
    F/O: Actually not.

      Thanks, I appreciate the good words. I'm well over it but will probably file a formal complaint, only because he seemed to refuse any responsibility and didn't even have the manners to apologize.

        Out of curiosity, did he manage to land his F-16 after that, or did it crash after impact?

        Obviously, though, someone with more money than either sense or courtesy.

        • Like I've said in other posts the level of stupidity and ignorance these days astounds me. Hope you can get some satisfaction from a formal complaint and move on to a new build. Good luck Hugh!

                  • Yeeha. Lockdown not over just yet. But my thumbs deserve it. Stuff em. So I flew trusty Corsair. Which went well. Still I was nervous ..... And then maidend The mig 17. Very very. Nervous. Not flown 4 toooo long. It went well. It did need lots right aileron trim. And It was a tiny bit pitch sensetive. It was a bit windy so may wait 4 no wind c if that is still the case. Unless u guys have suggestions. Was fun

                    • Early knock off today, out to the field for a dozen flights on the Mig. Had the place to myself, as is usual midweek.

                      Have taken to flying it clean, as much as I love scale detail it just flies so much better. Starting to explore the flight envelope a little more, too. Quite exciting seeing a 6.5kg EDF flapping around in the sky.

                      • Three flights today on this recently completed Sterling TriPacer. Running a salvaged Dynam Corsair power system (probably not my greatest decision ever) with a 4s 2200 battery. And Callie graphics of course! Click image for larger version
