Default A #9 challenge to all...

With a witness, who will be the last tail touch of 2003, and the first of 2004?

Anyone up for a midnight flight? Remember, fly sober.

i'd be up for it, but i'm gonna do it all 2004 as well LOL
Midnight flying at our club isnt done sober, you have to be drunk to WANT to fly a plane at night with no lights and trusting your drunk "best mate ever i Fing love you" to hold the torch on the plane, not the turn it on and off for a laugh.

I do believe that's rule 8 and 9! Hell, why don't we see who's the first one to break the most rules at once in 2004. Here's my plan: drink beer, attach metal bladed propellor and fireworks to plane. THen chase harmless furry animals near the airport with a plane not identified with my address or ama number.

And oh yea, better throw in a tail touch here and there also

Can anyone top it?

I think time zones would make this contest a little unfair. Wonder what the weathers going to be like on new years.

It's just like when the news covers the first baby being born. 12:00:01 is a winner.

I gotta see the turbine flying at 201, tail touchin' then chasing cows, with a metal prop on the front, with fireworks blastin, and all of this three sheets into the wind.

That would be a heck of a turbine to do a tail touch...

12:00:01 GMT?

Drag the rudder on a low inverted pass through the pits at 201mph with a turbine powered plane with bottle rockets mounted to the wings and a reward firing roman candle duct taped to the belly. After that, you flip a switch on the tx and the plane lands autonomously(sp?).This would have to be done at midnight, and I think theres a rule about nightflying jets. Or we could just put a flaming bag of dog poo on DBs doorstep and ring the door bell.

It's all dark here anyway, so not a problem I'll do it.

Problem is with the time zone's I'll be last [:@]

Unless it's cold then forget it.

I'll bring the Zippo fluid.

By the way, you're the only person I've ever seen publicly admit to knowing about this... Just curious, did you ever stick an M80 under a pile of poo, light the fuse, then take off running but NOT tell everyone else to run? Had a bunch of angry buddies over that one.

oh yes, you have to fit in a trans-alantic crossing now that remote GPS flying is banned, seeing as hes done it and dun want anyone to beat HIS achivement.. ummmm
what about bomb drop the poo??

at night hey, will have to cover the airframe in fuel and use the turbine to set light to it so we can see.. will have to limit the flight to two mins before the ariframe turns to a big jelly mess

No I haven't blown up any poo yet. I've had some fun with fire ant beds though.

My Labrador can supply plenty o' poo.

So it's a drunken, 201 mph, M-80 imbedded bag o' poo-bomb drop, from a 70+ pound plane, behind the flight line over DB's populated neighborhood, while dragging the rudder, in the dark, chasing the neighborhood dogs, with rear firing roman candels, at 12:00:01 GMT?

Without doing a range check!

That sounds like a challenge to me.

I have a computer game called "Flaming Bag of Poo". A bag of poo runs around on the porch, and you click to move the man's foot to stomp it. The kids love that one. It's simple but fun.

If anyone wants a copy, e-mail me at [email protected], and I'll send it to you.

how about....

being drunk and flying a jet going 201 mph, M-80 imbedded bag o' poo-bomb drop, from a 70+ pound plane, behind the flight line over DB's populated neighborhood, while dragging the rudder, in the dark, chasing the neighborhood dogs, with rear firing roman candels, at 12:00:01 GMT, without doing a range check.

just for kicks lets add the following....

use futaba S3003's all around, using one for both ailerons, all control surfaces are to be linked to servos with plastic clevesis', using snakes instead of closed loop hence inducing massive amounts of possible flutter, also the plane will be constructed by a school class consisting of thirty pupils, all 7-8, using there amazing paste and poster paint to build the plane....

.....heck i'm up for it!!

Make a ring of fire on the ground with gas and then hover in it so you can see the plane.

but dont really do it.
