come up here where the rocks are a little higher and see how well it works taking off a 5800 MSL runway on an 85 degree day.

Pink Miata is owned by Jon Martin, a good friend of mine. He hasn't updated his site in a while due to work constrains and his wife and he buying a new house.

that round thing with a vertical line by his right shoulder is the instrument approach he has dialed in, I can't tell if he has an ILS or just the localizer, he's of the LOC 2 dots and if the ILS is dialed in he's WAY off glideslope, sad since he's in the clear.

A 172 is more like the Chevy Cavalier of the sky. The Citabria is more like a Miata.

Phil, the GS appears to be dead center.

no, the extra is like the miata.

I can't tell if he's spot on GS or if he's way off, judging from the angle more than likely he just has the LOC dialed in.

That's a tricky runway to land on, look at the 10' drop just before it.

Ther's a red flag on the right, could mean that the GS is off. I don't have my instrument ticket and don't fly any approches with a glide slope. In fact the planes I fly most don't even have one.

You should try landing at Merrit Island, FL The first 1000' of the runway stick out into the Indian River. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Coi.jpg

billings MT is worse, the approach end is on the top of a bluff, about 1/8th mi from the end of the runway is a 200' cliff.

he also has a TO flag so he could have the on field VOR dialed in.

wow we sure have some pilots on here. i was listening in on them and it sounded like they wanted him to circle around a min while they were doing somthing and then told him to land right after they said that so he started to land a little off. was a little wind at the time to so i unno how that effects things. hes got about 35 hours under his belt and has to get more so hes looking for excuses to get his *** up in the air. he gets hours, i save time and gas. its a win win, but philip has to knock his learning curve to the ground, hes not a pro yet
