I had a rather interesting flight today. My first flight on my old Dazzler with a T8FG trans and a R617FS rec. After takeoff I needed a touch of left trim, bumped the button a couple of times,...

RE: ALL US Navy Blue Angels 2013 shows cancelled

$4,000,000,000,000.00

Projected BUDGET for next year. 40% plus of that amount is either borrowed, or made up out of thin air. Air so thin, that no Demo Team can fly in it.

I don't know if this has been linked here already or not, but it is worth a look.

RE: Name this Plane
