Yup, still alive!
Missed a flyin at 'windy city' due to grand daughter's baptism plus a few local flyins cancelled due to lots of rain, etc.
Been going to the local club's field to get some flying in.
Doug and I do formation flying with our warbirds.
Next big flyin is Goshin, Indiana.

Corsair flies well but 'no go' on the Dauntless. The GT-80 wouldn't start and then stopping when I advanced the throttle.
Problems:
Choke servo was not moving so engine wouldn't start.
Replaced that servo and saw that the choke 'butterfly' was closing when advancing the throttle. Turns out the 'Y reverser' for the cowl flaps was bad.
Been flying this plane for 11 years; initially, thought a problem with the motor. Glad it was an easy fix!
