  1. There was a variant (C-128K) with that configuration. Vietnam war era USAF. But the one they use in Eloy sometimes wouldn't need those. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairchild_C-123_Provider Boy, that pic off to the side of a 123 with no engines made me do a doubletake!

  2. I recall some time back she claimed to have met with Polis, and the truth came out later that she just met with someone in his staff. BTW Joan Peck won a seat on the Longmont City Council. This was the candidate endorsed by Kim. I'm not aware of Peck saying or doing anything anti-aviation...yet.

  3. PF had a mfgr certification required to pack the S-Flyer. One Saturday morning, I met a master rigger who PF had certified to qualify riggers, and packed it up, and got my certification. Then I went out to the DZ that afternoon and made my first jump with it in my container. Mr Murphy was apparently watching...as I rode it down on the first jump.

  4. I won't profess to completely know their logic. However, one other thing comes to mind. Those '25 years ago' the standard reserve was a round canopy. My rigging log book shows I first packed a ParaFlite Safety-Flyer on March 21, 1979, (36 years ago). So there were square reserves around for 10 years before CYPRES hit the market. I have no idea what percentage they had by 1990. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  5. I just saw this article about phenylephrine yesterday: http://www.forbes.com/sites/daviddisalvo/2015/10/26/the-popular-over-the-counter-cold-medicine-that-science-says-doesnt-work/ "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.

  7. Some people have just one? "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  8. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_surviving_Consolidated_B-24_Liberators https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_surviving_North_American_B-25_Mitchells "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  9. Done 20 years ago for the first time: http://www.lewistotle.net/northpole.shtml Send a PM to "billbooth" on here for info. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  10. Looks like they also expect you to have a metric altimeter. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  11. Todays whine: https://www.change.org/p/members-of-congress-urge-congress-to-adopt-regulations-to-reduce-airplane-noise/u/13556604 Seems someone had the audacity to make a 0500 flight to Colorado Springs w/o her prior approval. FYI The flight she is whining about was a 1968 Beech D55 (Baron) at 4300' AGL which was 0.5 mile West of her at the closest point in the flight path.

  12. No. http://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?rgn=div8&node=47:2.0.1.1.2.8.27.12 "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  13. And this has been on the MHS website for years: Maybe if the CQS droids had ever bothered to note when MHS actually operates, they wouldn't make fools of themselves by: - Claiming credit for a non-existent change. - Repeatedly whining about 24x7 noise. - Filing noise complaints on days when MHS isn't even flying.

  15. It finally happened; Gear has become so expensive that the newer jumpers must share a canopy. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  16. Todays whine from CQS supporter: http://www.timescall.com/columnists/opinion-local/ci_28838618/ingrid-moore-thumbs-down-mile-hi-apologist "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  17. From the link: The Vikings decided to incorporate a parachute jumper into the team's pregame routine for Sunday's home opener, which sounds good in theory, AS LONG AS THE PARACHUTE JUMPER ISN'T TAKING OUT MEMBERS OF THE OTHER TEAM. How do we know that wasn't part of the Vikings plan? "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  18. We really need to see the video! "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  19. Guy posts letter-to-the-editor pointing out loud motorcycles are a bigger problem. Kimmy immediately jumps in to put him down: http://www.timescall.com/opinion/letterstotheeditor/ci_28838775/surely-longmont-can-do-something-about-loud-motorcycles "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  20. Oh, the horror! MHS is flying today! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqIlAZhRSEU "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  21. Bad news for the next military pilot who needs to punch out of a crippled combat a/c over the city. BTW I got the email from USPA, but googling turned up nothing. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  22. So far, I've been resisting the urge to sign the petition with some "interesting" names. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  23. It is really sad that Tim Barth (who managed KLMO for 18 years), left. He struck me as a straight shooter that told it like it is, regardless of what the listener wanted to hear. But he had his fill of the city council not backing him up, so he left. The city council seems to operate under the delusion that trying to placate Gibbs will make her go away, when in fact it just encourages her to demand more. They all need to grow spines. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  24. It has been contained and halted.... someone just needs to explain this to Kimmy and her Minions. That will not, apparently, be easy. The court case is on appeal; The city officials are still falling over themselves trying to placate the head case instead of being firm with her; The new airport manager has sent out a notice to pilots telling them to avoid flying over "sensitive areas", i.e. Kimmy's neighborhood. I would hardly call it "halted". "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  25. That airport is private property, open to the public. It was sold to a new owner who decided he didn't want skydiving there. Of course the difference between privately owned airport, and a publicly owned one, is lost on Kimmy.
