Just a glory hound that in the end has to listen to what the guy with the big radar says.

Maybe Joe should send this theory in to cnn for comment. It appears to be less crazy than some of their speculation:

What I'm saying here is... "I'll be gentle baby, just giving you the tip".

LOLOL.

I'm old. Flew the C model when it was brand new in an all-Grumman air wing. I'd be behind my fuel ladder on the cat. KF/A-18 just boggles my mind.

Be gentle, please.

I built the model of an A-10 once.

I always figured flying was a bit like sex; sure, there's always hotter models to do it with, but as long as you were getting some, you really didn't have anything to complain about.

All my flying was done in a Wills Wing Raven 209, no complaints or apologies.

I always figured sex was like flying. Any time I had the urge to fly, I would just have sex. I have a fear of heights.

Mine was almost as slow as yours. A 1948 Stinson 108-3





EDIT: The internet is amazing. May I introduce an early picture of N4219C:



She had a variant of the same Franklin flat 6 engine that was in the Tucker automobile.

That's cool.

I used to have a Velocity homebuilt with a Franklin. These days I fly the company Baron whenever we need to test new avionics (it's Experimental R&D category).

Last night I talked to someone that used to do maintenance on planes.

So I'm pretty much right when I guessed aliens.

If I was going to pretend there was a wreck in the sea, what better place to not find it but in the Southern Indian Ocean?

Could the plane have sea-landed, (U.S. Airways 1549) lost buoyancy, and sunk before anyone could escape, without breaking apart? Without losing any petrol thus creating no observable oil "sheen"? The theory would carry everything on board to the bottom of the sea, leaving no debris.

I am on board with the fire theory.

Megalodon theory!!

If it did ditch where they're looking for it now, it was out of fuel so no slick. Plus, that's some rough ocean down there.

The Velocity was a great cross-country cruiser. I used to get an honest 25mpg out of it at 165KTAS. But, propeller was completely on the wrong end of the plane. It got damaged on every flight from debris kicked up by the landing gear. That plane gave me a lot of excitement (the bad kind). I'll take the Baron, thanks. Plus, someone else buys gas and insurance for the Baron.

I took an old Piper to one of the minor outlying islands of the Bahamas a little while back.



I rode bitch.








I'd love me some better gauges in the Miata.











I brought some parts and fixed a machine:

Nice sand. I did a survival school in Antigua. It wasn't hard to survive there at all. LOL.
