"Out to Sea"
Suzy Kryzanowicz
of Bay City, Michigan writes
"The cabin heat in my 1946 BC-12D Taylorcraft may not be
adequate for Michigan winters, but the flying and sunsets are superb."
Well said, Suzy!  Hopefully your brand-new AVweb baseball cap will
at least warm the top of your head while you’re flying around up there!

you can have way too much fun!"

Under a caption that says it all,
Don Parsons of St. Peters, Missouri
got our blood racing with this mid-air shot

"Future Pilot"
Gary Enochs of O’Fallon, Illinois
reminds us that yes, babies in the cockpit
are still funny!  (But not likely to be featured
here two weeks in a row, proud parents!
We always love to see your little ones, but
they have the best shot at winning at hat
if you catch us on a week where we’re not
inundated with flying toddlers.)

“Precision Approach"
Mark Wiencek of Oak Forest, Illinois asks,
"Who needs WAAS when we’ve got signs?"
According to Mark, this sign is only about 450
feet shy of the approach end of Ry 18 at MCX.

"Disposable Aircraft"
Adam Bell of Desert Hills, Arizona
snapped this pic at KDVT and "thought
it was kind of funny that someone threw
away an airplane.  Maybe it was one of
those 100-hour disposable types."
And we thought LSA opened up a whole
new market in general aviation … !
