  1. No. 17SC154, Court of Appeals Case No. 15CA1159 Petitioners: Citizens for Quiet Skies, Kimberly Gibbs, Timothy Lim, Suzanne Webel, John Behrens, Carla Behrens, and Richard Dauer, v. Respondent: Mile- Hi Skydiving Center, Inc. Petition for Writ of Certiorari DENIED. EN BANC.

  2. It also depends on altitude. Some years back I did a tandem terminal training jump at a DZ at 5150MSL in CO. Exit was 12,500AGL. Protrack reading showed 204mph when I pitched drogue ~9000AGL, and it had not leveled off. I'd estimate combined body weight at ~420# "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  3. Todays new Kimmie whine on FB: "More unregulated aviation noise coming to Boulder County." With link to this story: http://www.timescall.com/top-stories/ci_31012016/boulder-transport-takes-skies-and-slopes-helicopter-fleet And note she is whining in the comments below. Note this has nothing to do with skydiving, nor the Longmont Airport; It is about the audacity of aircraft using the Boulder Airport without getting her permission. (She is about ~4 miles East of Boulder Airport, and ~6 miles South of Longmont Airport.) "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  4. Trial: lost. Appellate court: lost. CO Supreme Court: waiting to see if they take it. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  5. Bullshit! This is one woman obsessed with hatred of *all* aviation, who managed to find few partially sympathetic friends on the Internet. Just watch her FB & Twitter pages, and you will see she posts news stories about any kind of aviation accident anywhere in the US, as well as any news stories about complaints over airliner noise (especially FAA NextGen route changes). How is that related to skydiving? It isn't. She just hates aviation. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  6. Here is the clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwCyNmf48ZI "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  7. Gibbs has made it clear that is her ultimate goal. She is on video at a Longmont City Council meeting, stating that if her demands are not met, then the airport should be closed. Going after MHS is just an intermediate goal. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  8. How/where did you get that link? It worked previously, but is giving me a 404 error now. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.

  11. Amusing part is there is no aviation noise shown anywhere around Longmont, nor the Gunbarrel CDP where the Grump lives. The closest one is the corridor that follows US36 and skims the Southern edge of Boulder. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  12. Damn. I used to jump with him at Parasport near Tocsin IN decades ago. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  13. Sounds like the author got sucked into a Gibb's argument. One of her (many) demands was that all the turbo-prop a/c must be equipped with 4-blade props, and not 3-blade props. I'm guessing she got this from marketing materials from companies wanting to sell 4-blade prop conversions. (They also claim fuel savings). I don't know whether a 4-blade prop really makes that much difference in noise, nor do I know whether it is even a viable option for the specific a/c MHS owns.

  15. That is what I'm expecting; But it would be nice to see her get slapped down by a third court. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.

  17. Appellate Court sent it back down to original court to clear up a minor detail that really makes no difference. See post #1816 for an analysis by DPREguy (who is a CO attorney): http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=4829495#4829495 Appellate Court decision: https://www.courts.state.co.us/userfiles/file/Court_Probation/20th_Judicial_District/Cases_of_Interest/Gibbs%20v%20Mile%20Hi%20Skydiving/COA%20No%2015CA1159%20Judgment%20Affirmed.pdf "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.

  19. Noise complaints at KLMO: 2015: 90 people made 969 complaints 2016: 33 people made 257 complaints Source: http://www.timescall.com/longmont-local-news/ci_30793374/longmont-airport-noise-complaints-plummet-2016 "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  20. Gibbs is The Black Knight from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"; No matter how many limbs are severed, she will never understand she has been defeated. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  21. Your spelling is correct. Expensive for the USMC, and painful for him. He called me up the next day to tell me he wouldn't be flying to So. Cal that weekend to jump. He literally couldn't get out of bed. He walked away from the crash just fine, but froze up overnight. It was supposed to be a shoot for Life Magazine. Some formation flying and a roll-over. Turned into a roll-onto. No footage or photos survived, AFAIK. I didn't get the "roll onto" part, so I googled it: http://marciajsargent.com/Wing_Wife_Blog/Entries/2011/3/27_Fighter_Pilot_Rule_1.html Ouch! "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  22. Isn't he the aviation magazine guy with the Trump like penchant for suing anyone who says anything bad about him? Maybe he'll dig into a fight with Kimmy! That's him! The two best bios on him: By Wanttaja: http://www.wanttaja.com/zguide.htm By Ousterhout: http://www.ousterhout.net/zoom.html "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  23. See attachment from the CQS FB page. Show of hands: How many people here know the legend of James "Capt Zoom" Campbell? Here is the video link set to start at the CQS story in that link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdU-0zCeIxQ&t=1m45s Note that the person in the video is not Campbell. And here is a link to the story on Campbell's website: http://www.aero-news.net/index.cfm?do=main.textpost&ID=7159BB75-C072-4096-A255-77F443E84916 Now in a Gibbs v Campbell squabble, which side do I take?

  24. Oddly, Kimmie just tweeted this link which contradicts the very argument her attorneys were trying to make on appeal: http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/us-court-of-appeals-for-the-second-51356/ "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
