A Social Network for Navy Veterans of the United States of America
A friend of mine has a classic Steerman & invited me to go on a short flight with him,but....I don't know......
Those old Steermans could cuise at about 80 mph,having a LOT of drag,what with the fixed landing gear along for the ride.I piloted a 1975 Cessna/172 at Kitty Hawk,NC,flew south at the Outer Banks over the Bodie Island Light House,and it was a HOOT!!...I was able to take it up & do some stunts with it,and had a very enjoyable day.But for some reason,I couldn't stop looking to avoid TREES and other objects...(there were none,of course ).Keeping the TRIM aligned was reminiscent of steering the old Navy Destroyers I served on...But you're right,Doug,it might be just what I need to get the old juices flowing again.I might give my friend a call,and see if the offer still stands....Stay tuned!
