John Franco, 07-26-06, 1V6-KGUC, 45, BGAN011, DC3, IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE? Geez, I am willing to bet that many planes were lost on this sector in the 50's. I weaved through mountains and clouds and had an extremely close encounter with mountainous terra firma. Passed by Monarch Pass which is 11,312 feet! The engines whined and huffed as I struggled over the pass at Full RPM and throttle, seeking the best air fuel mixture. Frontier DC3 Denver to Salt Lake leg 3.

Luke, 07-24-06, PADQ-CYVR, 168, BGAN021, c-5, CAT4 Enjoyable flight despite having to pause for an hour while wife looked at ebay. Nice landing. Rain when I left Kodiak (PADQ), clear skies till I hit Vancouver Island then pea soup all the way. Was aiming at FL330 but the plane wouldnt go above 29,000. Took half an hour to reach that. E-mailed 62nd AW in hopes that I may recieve a checklist for the c-17 & c-5 since there are none published online. Also wrote AMC e-publications office @ pentagon...Won't hold my breath, waiting for CIA or something to knock on door to ask why I require checklists for their military aircraft.

Terry Wright, 07-23-06, CYDQ-PAOR, 353, bgak007, DHC-6, This was the Alaska Highway inspection trip from Dawson Creek with stops at Ft St John, Ft Nelson, Toad R (nasty approach), Watson L, Teslin, Whitehorse, Haines Junction, Burwash (always a dungeon of fog), Beaver Creek, and ending at Northway, AK. Fair bit of haze and heavy clouds, no probs anywhere.


David R. Evans, 07-23-07, T44-Kwp-T44, 58, bgak015, PBY-5A, Grab a cup of java and headed for the dock,as the sun was just riseing out of the water.castoff the lines after a walk around,and headed for WestPoint for a load of seafood to be canned.visibility 10Mi or less and a 6-10 gusty head wind was going to make the wind current fun while letting down into the bays.landing was positive as an eddy of air shoved the cat down to the water from 10ft up.took 33min with Hw.the trip back was ok except some crabs were not dead and deviced an escape plan,went on autopilot a few minutes to round the viciouse crustations up...wonder if the natives are chuckling thinking what my face looked like when my copilot was a king crab.arrived back at Trident hoping to get time enough for a quick bite to eat.took 25Min return.


Barry Theodore, 07-23-06, LPPT-LPCO, 92, BGAD012, Lockheed Vega, First time flying the Vega. Take off ok, managed to use the "Auto Pilot", lined up beautiful but found the plane easy to stall so landed a bit hard or perhaps I should re-phrase that "BL......DY Hard". Maybe better next time.


Luke, 07-22-06, PKRO-PWAK, 44, BGAN021, AN225, Nice flight with LTC crew. Good landing at Wake Island, pulled up my big bird at the last taxiway. Had trouble with vibration in the 225 so I downsized mid-air shortly after take-off to the slightly smaller 124 which was still my no means a light plane. Landing a galaxy class aircraft at Wake was no problem although she didnt want to drop. Turned for final too high due to visitors dropping in and distracting me but managed beautifully to bring her down.


Tom Burrill, 07-23-06, KMEM-KLGA, 157, bgak033, DC9-50, On line flight with West Coast from Memphis to New York Laguardia.  Good flight with interesting appraoch due to Thunder Storm in the Area. Used ILS for Rwy 13 with a landing on the first try.


Barry Theodore, 07-22-06, YMEN-YKII, 75, BGAD012, Douglas DC3, Parts arrived ok. Uneventful flight back to King Island, a little rough on the landing. Also the modem stopped during the flight (I was using "real weather") so had to revert to something else.

Gary McCarty, 07-22-06, YPDN-YGTE, 355, bgas031, Douglas DC-5, YPGV-YGTE-YNGU-YMHU-YNGU


John Franco, 07-22-06, KHVN-KBDL, 63, BGAN011, C208B, I was in the soup the whole way up. What a yucky day for flying. And then I had an unexpected go around on the GPS 15 approach because a goonhead wouldnt turn off the runway in time.


John Franco, 07-22-06, LSZH-LFSB, 35, BGAN011, CRJ2, Hop 1 of 23 on a swiss server.

Luke, 07-21-06, LEBZ-LEST, 117, BGAN021, A65 Queenair, LPBG. Flight with Don again. Thouroughly enjoyed it. The touch and go in a paddock saw me bust my landing gear and had to repair craft and on my way. Followed the valleys to get under the cloud. Heap big turbulence on approach for Santiango (Spain) NIce landing but the plane eventually broke it's landing gear when I braked and went off the runway. I think its the model. I have a mitchell by the same author which does exactly the same thing no matter how soft I land. Repeated the same flight for LTC later in the F-14d and followed the valley inverted...I guess small things...never mind.


David R.Evans, 07-22-06, KAUW-KOSH, 68, bgak015, PT-17, removed the broken cable,pick one up at Oshkosh,only 10mi vis. haze but it's suppose to clear later on. flight was uneventfull,with time spent thinking of the looks on those who went for there first rides,in a open cockpit an seen there town or house from the air.watching aome grab the leather combming in terrror only to relax and point to land marks even though i can not hear them over the wind an motor,the smile is worth more than the cost of the ride.


Luke, 07-21-06, KEDW-KSUU, 36, BGAN021, F14-d, NGZ (waypoint) Crash landing at Travis, respawned and landed succesfully at KSFO. Perfect landing. Impressed with models carrier gear, no landing noise or anything.


David R. Evans, 07-09-06, KDLL-KAUN, 52, bgak-015, PT-17, Took my time on the preflight trying to work the kinks out from sleeping under the wing,i was sure i,d got ever rock out from under me,but they must have returned during the night.. about 5minutes out heard a ping and the tach stopped working figured the cable let go. nothing else changed so cruised on to WASSAU ,weather perfect and burned only 14Gal. little or no wind,patchy ground fog near the river but it burned off with the sun.

Luke, 07-21-06, NZCH-NZDN, 23, BGAN021, FH-1 Phantom I, Beautiful plane. Nice landing...getting better at fighter jet landings. I actually reckon this is as good as it's replacement, the F-4 Phantom II.


Luke, 07-21-06, NZCH-NZDN, 20, BGAN021, F-22 Raptor, Nice flight through the Mountains. Dunno why westcoast didnt register arrival at destination because I made a perfect landing in this hard to land ship. I didnt actually go belly up till I over-steered on the taxiway with my extra bouncy fighter gear.


Barry Theodore, 07-21-06, YMIA-YBHI, 69, BGAD012, Douglas DC3, First solo flight on WESTCOASTatc. Talked to Luke BGAN012 on route.


Luke, 07-19-06, Q87-Q86, 27, BGAN021, HU-16, Nice favourite water landing...If youre looking for a scenic short seaplane flight then you gotta try it, no AP. You head out over Travis and turn towards the pass in the hills (you should see Lake Berryessa over the top of the mountains) Head across the lake decending from Travis aero and turn across the island, Closest runway to the base is 32W which is level with the shoreline landing anywhere after you cross the peninsula...


Luke, 07-19-06, NZAS-NZCH, 18, BGAN021, Curtiss Jeep, Nice little ship the jeep. Took off from ashburton a breeze. Coudlnt even get the cessnas off from the short runway there.


Luke, 19-07-06, EGKK-LFPG, 49, BGAN021, BAE-RJ85, LFOE Beware the airbrake on th RJ85. Its a venus-flytrap type thing in the tail that opens up and slows you right down... dropped like a stone as soon as I activated the brake.

Luke, 18-07-06, NZWB-NZWN, 21, BGAN021, Bristol 170 freighter, Nice flight with Don. Good landing in the Bristol. Nice plane...low stall speed... landed full flaps, throttle off at 55 KIAS. Up to 188 cruise speed. Turned on a dime when braking but. If you want a decent sized plane for STOL the 170 is excellent...better than a dash 8 or whisper-jet.


Luke, 18-07-06, KBUF-CYWG, 145, BGAN021, Emirates 7e7, TVF. Failure to land due to fs9 crashing on approach.

John Lawler, 07-19-06, KSMD-KBMG, 110, bgad017, DH89A Dragon Rapide, Definitely a day for cabined aircraft. Overcast at Fort Wayne, with patches of rain en route to Bloomington but 2500' VFR was straightforward, and the roads stayed under the port wing all the way.  


Tom Burrill, 07-19-06, KCON_KACK, 60, bgak033, Piper Navaho Chieftian, IFR flight on line with West Coast ATC. Some IFR weather and rain experinced with a good finish.

Barry Theodore, 07-19-06, YKII-YMEN, 81, BGAD012, Douglas DC3, Used real weather, and yes, living close to the area I can say the weather is real ok. One of my best landings so far, kept the speed up and no flaps. Now to load up the requested parts and back to King Island.


Tom Burrill, 07-18-06, KJAX-KMIA, 98, bgak033, DC6, Flight on Vatsim with traffic and using NBD NAV with DME back up. 1950's type auto pilot and NO FSNAV. Stayed glued to to the seat the whole time. Real flying for sure but great fun.

John Lawler, 07-18-06, KAZO-KSMD, 58, bgad017, DH89A Dragon Rapide, Off on the Barnstormer's Rally at last. The Rapide is a little modern for the event, but not as much as some of the actual machines taking part, besides which the last three letters of Cambrian's G-AJCL are my initials, and in her BEA days, she flew the last fixed wing service out of the Scilly Isles into Cornwall. As I am 2 parts Cornish (the "C") and 1 part each Welsh and Irish (the "L") I feel that I have a claim to (virtual?) ownership. Real weather (delightful), flew VFR at 1200-1500' agl.

Luke, 15-07-06, MMTM-FHOU, 102, BGAN021, C-17, Helluva approach to Hobby in Houston. had a passenger fear rating of 65% because I caught a gust of wind and the plane started to lift again... Surprised I got a landing bonus because I went about 100 metres past the runway...KNOG was the waypoint for decent


Luke, 14-07-06, FOOL-FGBT, 37, BGAN021, HU-16, unscheduled layover at FOOC while waiting for Don to join flight. Don was impressed with Bata (FGBT). He thougth I was a bit short of a pound when I disappeared over the cliff to make my approach. Bata should be included in the toughman challenge. FOOC is just as hairy... super short grass strip which sent my albatross on a cross country bush-bash where I had to catapult off a cliff to get airborne.

Also the prop readjustment worked,gained 3Knts and was able to climb.  (Pilot ID is bgak015)

Barry Theodore, 07-13-06, YSRN-YKII, 132, BGAD012, Douglas DC3, Non eventful trip. I have just been approached by a pilot who is having trouble with A Bristol Freighter and wants to charter me to go the Essendon on the mainland to pick up some parts for him. I told him I would make the trip for him. But first I am going to have a feed of Cray Fish and a couple of glasses of brown stuff and a glass of port. I guess the trip to the mainland will be tomorrow. I actually flew down here in a real Bristol Freighter some years back. We picked up a load of Cray Fish for the mainland. There was a shed here then, I guess it has fallen down.

David R. Evans, 07-08-06, KBMG-C16, 67, bgak015, PT-17, ceiling 5000 scattered light wind . Had A&E change pitch setting to get more cruise preformance,but turned out to much as max Rpm was at 1600 and only gained 4 knts and saved no fuel as spent more time at full throttle to climb to Alt. Will have it set back 2deg. which will split the differance and maybe get engine into a better tourge range,flight went smooth once up on step,and found needed landmarks ok.


Barry Theodore, 07-09-06, YMHB-YSRN, 71, BGAD012, Douglas DC3, This time a direct flight. Had a lot of low cloud but managed to see a lot of the scenery, again it is a pleasure to fly over such good scenery. The fishermen left the aircraft here, I think I will continue around the coast and maybe a diversion to King Island.


Barry Theodore, 07-09-06, YMHB-YSRN, 120, BGAD012, Douglas DC3, Tried the coastal route first, this scenery is great.
