    If I was smarter, I'd post all of this.
    Why is it that those that know the least, know it the loudest?

    Seriously nice air ride! I was saving my pennies for a motorized para sailer but got hurt bad enough so I have no balance anymore. Scratch that idea. Now I'm looking at a towed para sailer to tow behind my Trail Rail. Balance won't matter for that since up and down are it. There's no banking or turning, etc.

    I worked for thirty years for a large Sheriff's Department and spent some of those years in the Transportation Unit. We went and got the people being extradited, dealt with the Indian Nations, etc. One of our jobs was to be the armed escort on the in State flights. We used a small Cessna for that.

    So we're buzzing along one fine day headed West and the lady pilot and I are talking aircraft over the intercom. She's showing me all the neat things that this particular aircraft can do. "It even has an Auto Pilot and it works like this". ....Except it didn't work and we headed for the ground at high speed. She recovered fast and got us back on track. I was looking at the Earth thru the side window and happened to glance back towards her. Yes, I screamed but it was only a little scream, ok???!!! She had the entire dash laid out in her lap and she was yanking at wires on the back like some kind of demented nit picker! I started speaking calmly but might have ended up shouting a little. "Dontcha' think maybe you should wait to take the airplane apart UNTIL AFTER WE'RE ON THE GROUND????" She was like "Yeah I guess so" and stuffed the wires all back inside so she could close it up. For the rest of the way there and on the return trip, I kept an eye on her.

    Why is there a cow
    On the side
    Of this
    Ercoupe ?
    (NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART)

    It was a dark and stormy night somewhere over Oklahoma in 1960 (Actually it was a clear sky and it was Dusk) and Our fearless pilot was attempting to land in the heart of a howling storm (see above) on a grass strip. Unknown to the fearless pilot, the storm had lifted an entire herd of cows and deposited them on the intended landing strip (Truth is, the airport manager would turn the cows out at sunset for them to eat the grass). Our Fearless pilot managed to land safely and when he came to a stop, the poor little Ercoupe was Prop to Horns with a HUGE Bull, the pilot was brave, the Coupe was scared, the bull was a bull. Our brave pilot revved the engine, the engine ROARED, the prop spun faster, and the bull turned and ran, The brave pilot gave chase and suddenly the bull stopped and the coupe didn’t and hit the Bull in the part of it’s body where most of this story comes from………
