Not acceptable! Must have a minimum of one full thread beyond the lock nut.

Default Great report

Fun to read. Thanks for the write-up. 2018 was an awesome OSH year.

I wondered when this post would show up, only to find my gluttony at the Otter immortalized. Nice post, my friend!

Mike,

Another great write-up. Good to see you at OSH. Another benefit of IFR is getting a IFR slot reservation for an OSH arrival.

Hope to see you in Belfast.

Great trip report! Was great to meet you and talk for a bit...

We were wandering through one of the vendor hangars with my brother wearing a Pliny The Elder tee shirt. Mike spotted it and was like a moth to a flame... so we chatted about a few of our favorite things; RVs and beer!

Nice writup, except for the goofy pic of me. Why do I suspect it was intentional?

Thumbs up #RealAviationMedia

It's a pleasure to read a piece by a matured aviation journalist. Perfect mix of airplanes, bikinis and booze. Good job on avoiding weather. Great media crew they surely know whom to issue the passes to. Maybe you can join me on a trip in 2020? Need somebody to tell all the truth.

Let's make the flying great again!
