N321BY is Thane States' beautiful RV-10.

I wouldn't say mine is beautiful, there are much nicer RV's out there.

I really like your LanceAir! Now that is a beautiful plane!

To answer your question, Hickory has a good burger joint in the terminal and a museum but I'm up for other suggestions. Now that the weather is getting better, I need to FLY!

Here's a 3 min. video of my 15 min. return to AVL. I'm so pleased that all the endless Cutting and Buffing I did on the fuselage seems to have worked...and I haven't even waxed the lower part you see in the video.

Nice video!

Hickory will work.

KMTV has food but what about on the other side of mountains or Atlanta?

Confusing numbers reminds me of the young pilot having dinner with his date.
Looking out of the airport restaurant window he was pointing out the different airplanes. His date asked if there was one there like his. He thought a minute and said, "You see that one over there? That's a C-130. I have a C-150."

Either is fine with me. Darwin and I flew up to Knoxville Downtown [KDKX] last Thursday for BBQ at Calhoun's. I'm not aware of any other place N of the mountains with food. I've not been to PDK but would like to try sometime. I bought my motor from the late Ben Epps of Epps aviation. I think his brother Pat is still alive.

Darwin and I flew to Spartanburg today to try out their new runway, which only opened a few days ago. Owen couldn't make it because his RV-12 failed the mag check on runup. The KSPA runway is nice but the taxiways are still under construction. I had to taxi all the way to the end to get off. After partaking of their $4.20 AvGas, we decided to fly on up to Rutherfordton for a burger at 57A rather than take a courtesy car into Spartanburg. We parked next to a Piper LSA, which I had never seen before. Made in Czechoslovakia, apparently. Nice looking aircraft!

How is 57A? Had a great experience there after a negative one at Gatlinburg a few years back.

I like it. It's a tiny little place that serves great enchiladas and burritos, as well as burgers and sandwiches. There are picnic tables outside if the "dining room" is full. http://www.57alpha.com/ Cash only. Closed Mondays.

Default SPA

So the photographer is a day late and a dollar short, but four of us flew to Spartanburg [SPA] for lunch at Jason's Deli on Wednesday. I forgot my wide angle lens so I was unable to get all our planes in one shot. Then I left the camera in the plane so I couldn't post the photos until today. I flew my Lancair, Owen flew his RV-12, Darwin flew his RV-3, and Mark brought his Subaru-powered RV-#?





On the return trip at 6,500' , Darwin kept up with me all the way and then approach put him in front of me for landing. I call discrimination!
