XXX Flight: 2009-1212-1 in N37148 (BlueBird) for $
KCNI - KCNI - KGVL - KCNI (flying time 1:38)
Flight Notes:
Took a flight with Laura today and actually went somewhere for some fun! One other thing... Saw two warbirds come in at 47A, and each did a 50ft (lower?) pass over the runway before making a very short pattern and coming in perfectly. That sort of local knowledge is a really cool idea. Who's up for regular runway strafings? :-) (David Thorburn-Gundlach)

Leg Notes:
Lots of gusty + some xwind = 2 go-arounds before a ldg at 47A. Who would have thought it from 7kt winds? :-) (David Thorburn-Gundlach)

Leg Notes:
Then flew over to GVL. All was smooth but for 2-3 sec we had a strange buzzing roughness. Plenty of mix, and I even gave her more for a bit, so what was it? Seems way too fast for turbulence. Had some bumps on the way in at GVL, too. + I followed in a 182 thinking he would be faster than I and he pulled this looooong downwind. Maybe I shouldn't be so polite :-) (David Thorburn-Gundlach)

Leg Notes:
Then a trip over the Sawnee house to doodle in the air over their heads. Fun flying and turning but I didn't hold my altitude like I should have.
Called ATL for following down to the dam and over to 47A. We were at 4000 ft just under the clouds; weird feeling. Right near the dam he let me know of traffic at about my altitude and closing, so I dropped to 3500 to see the dam anyway. Another turn (and lost altitude; grrr) and then we were headed back up to 4000 on the way to 47A.
Just as we were getting to altitude and showing up on radar again, here comes this plane right on our altitude and right for us from ten o'clock! L saw it first just as ATL was letting me know. ATL suggested I turn rt and down, but this guy was already turning the same way, so I went left at alt. Whew! Excitingly close, and I could turn off the cabin heat after that :-)
Then a nice setup for ldg at 47A but thwarted by winds again and had to go around. The next time I stayed high and just did a short base and final pretty much at dead stick @ 70kts. I think I like that better anyway, and it sure worked well today.
