Default My wife keeps making fun of me...

Ok, so first my wife made a lot of fun of me for amputating the legs of my one of my pilots...

So on my next plane I decide to leave the legs on. Now she really can't stop laughing!?!?

You know when you lose something and say "it must have grown legs and walked away"? If you happen to misplace that cockpit you can forgo part of that statement. LOL

Why keep them? It just ads extra weight that you don't need. I guess the only reason is if you decide to change the pilot you can sell it?

My wife hates them. Says they creep her out and are always staring at her. So I made a special pilot. She made me put him back in the box.

On a serious note, I had a friend that lost both legs in an aircraft accident. He went on to get his medical back, flying and teaching at a simulator training center.

With or without legs, everybody can be a good pilot.

So true ...

Imagine being honest.
"Don't worry honey, it was on sale for only $130.00. But the jet was $8,700.00 and the engine was just another $2,800.00"

Mine used to give me a hard time about the amount of time I spent on it how it seemed like an obsession.

Then I told her "Hey look, a guy needs to have a hobby to keep him sane. Look at Tiger Woods, now his hobby is a lot more expensive and a lot more obsessive. Is mine so bad?"

To which she responded "You have a point! Go play with your Jets. I'm going to buy a new pair of shoes."

She has been a lot more understanding ever since

My ex wife used to laugh at my hobby too. After relentless banter from her I asked her to stop and how would she like it if she didnt see me for about three days...she said she didnt care what I do or where I go....the first day she didnt see me, the second day she didnt see me and on the third day she could just barely see me out of the corner of her left eye!!!!!!!

JUST KIDDING BTW....Funny stuff though!!!

For our tenth anniversary I bought my wife a SVT Cobra Mustang convertible.
Now whenever I hear, how much did that new model cost?
I simply reply, not nearly as much as that Mustang.

My friend Ron Stahl always tells his wife model planes are cheaper than blondes and Corvettes. She's happy with planes.

I also explain lain to my misses, if I die before you don't sell my stuff for what I told you I paid for it.

I like to maiden the plane with the CG a bit forward. Will likely take them off once I'm convinced it's safe to move the CG aft.

Sorry to heir about your friend. Glad he is back doing what he loves. Just out of curiosity how does he operate the rudder and brakes?
Did he have the aircraft modified or has he got another trick which he uses.
