    Walt Appel's longest fall

    I haven't posted here in FOREVER, but I was talking to someone about the syrup of ipecac routine, which made me miss Walt, so I came here to see if there was any latest news of him. Holy cow, is there ever! Congratulations, you two. You were both very dear to me back when I was around. And of course, I'll never forget when Walt put his damn foot through my non-CRW canopy during my one and only CRW jump down at Spaceland. Please tell that old turd I said hi. And my very best wishes to you both.

    I haven't posted here in a very, very long time. I just heard the news and I couldn't be happier. Lee showed me incredible kindness during a very low spot in my life. He was a prince and he is dearly missed. I miss Lee. And JP. And Chris. And...

    Well, it really is great jump ship physically, but the economy of it isn't all that great given what it costs to operate an hour and given today's fuel costs. When I was talking to Goby at PenTurbo about this plane, oh maybe 3-4 years ago, he was saying it was about 1400/hr to operate. In today's dollars, if you get it to do two loads an hour, which is what Goby thought it could do, you'll have to fill it w/ more than a few tandems to make sure you're not losing money. Incidentally, how long did it take to get to altitude? I'm envious that y'all got to jump it. I miss Lee. And JP. And Chris. And...

    no answer on who the owner of n600nc is? according to this http://www.airport-data.com/aircraft/N600NC.html it's still penturbo, but this could be out of date... I miss Lee. And JP. And Chris. And...

    so who owns this plane now? does Goby still own it (president of PenTurbo aviation in Jersey) or did he finally sell it? when it talked to him a couple years back he wanted 3.8 mil for this plane w/o deicing boots and 4.2 mil w/ the boots. if someone bought it as a jump ship, that's an AWFULLY expensive jump ship. edited to add: and it's not cheap to operate either!

    Ever owned a "Worst Car of All Time"?

    my father bought a brand new Yugo back when they came out in... what was it... '87 or something like that. what a piece of shit that was. but he was so proud of it. he pimped it out w/ chrome hubcaps and pinstriping all over the place. ugh it was such an embarassment for him to drop me off at school in that thing on his way to work. he let me take it out one night and it got it up to 97 mph on I-17 in phoenix. that engine was so loud. i thought it would blow up. a few years before that when we lived at edwards AFB my father bought an old mail jeep, w/ the sliding doors. he put these big goodyear eagls and racing rims on it. what a dork. no AC, just these pop out vents down by your legs. left hand steering, right hand passenger seat. weird. he painted it navy blue and again pimped it out, like the dork he is. ugh. my sister had a brown pinto in high school that i later inheritied. never blew up, thank god. it actually wasn't too bad of a car.
