    Joe,

    That brown pickup in the OC terminal photo belongs to my old boss!

    Here are a few of mine from the past month or so.

    Two hours left with only a camera bag and some clouds to keep me company!


    On the way home from picking up the airplane in Vero Beach. Piper even threw in a free jacket with the airplane purchase


    Another fun day! We had a 140 knot head wind at 27,000 feet. I guess it could have been worse.


    The brefier said it would be VFR all day!


    My front seat student is lost in space, and.....well...I have no clue what the backseat kid is doing!


    I will post a few more later,

    Alex.

    Here are a few more pictures I've taken in the last few days. Unfortunately they were with my crappy cellphone camera, but better than nothing.


    Baltimore's Inner Harbor while being vectored to land on runway 15R after a cross country to KGED (sorry I didn't stop Alex, was running late for my next flight), and KOXB.

    The University of Delaware while flying from ILG to BWI.


    I can see my house from here!



    I need to bring my real camera on my next cross country flight...cell cameras suck

    Pretty good for cell shots.

    Speaking of cross country flights, what defines one? Taking off and landing at a different airport (+the FAA's specific mileage requirements for specific license requirements)?

    Yep, if you're a private or commercial pilot a cross country is any time you use some sort of navigation to get to (and land at) an airport different from the one you departed from.

    It is different however if you are a student pilot or building time for an ATP. For a student, a cross country needs to be at least 50nm from the departure airport. For those going for their ATP there is no need to land at another airport. They found that they had many military pilots (tankers an bombers mostly) who would fly half way across the world, drop their bombs or dispense their fuel, turn around and come back, yet they couldn't log it as a cross country because they didn't land anywhere else.

    Did a cross country from BWI-WWD-BWI the other day and took a few pictures on the way.

    About to do our runup on the deicing pad at BWI


    Taxiing onto 33R


    View of the general aviation ramp during climb out


    Looking back at BWI during our turnout to the east


    Still climbing


    Climbing over the Chesapeake Bay


    Eastern shore of Maryland


    Climbing as we reach the Delaware bay to reduce our chances of having to swim in case our engine quits


    Cape May, New Jersey


    A crappy closeup of the lighthouse after we stopped at KWWD and refueled


    The sun finally decided to make an appearance


    Back over Delaware


    I need a fisheye lens


    Dover AFB from 4,500ft


    Looking towards Baltimore and the Key Bridge


    Looking towards Baltimore while on final approach


    Final approach to runway 33R where my student made the absolute best landing I have ever seen in my life. His instructor must be awesome

    Judging from your last comment, I assume that you were covering for someone else that day, Joe?

    Great shots! I really want to try the Katana, but my instructor thinks theres too much of a size difference between us. Damn center of gravity.

    I'm almost 6'2 and big frammed, hes 5'6 and scrawny, this is one thing that my horrible fastfood intake hasn't caused.

    At any rate, its easy for you to say. I don't have the whole Austrilian outback to sprint across.

    Thunderstorm season is here!

    It looked dark to the west.


    The tops were in the mid forties when I got my briefing, at that piont it was still developing.


    The rest of the flight was beautiful!


    From about 50 miles south, I was at 10,000'.



    In a (very) slow climb to 210.


    New airplanes seem to always break.


    Count the planes


    Your captain for the day


    That's all,

    Alex.

    Was that from yesterday? I took my student into BWI to introduce him to the ADIZ and class B. We got out just before it reached the field. Didn't help that we had to taxi all around the deice ramp so that we could receive ground ctl on our radio.

    Potomac told me to "contact bay bridge tower on 123.0 *pause* uhh.....adisory on 123.0...whatever". He was busy. Oh yeah, and PM me your phone number again, that way if I make an impromptu stop at GED I can give you a call. I go there a lot less nowadays because it is 1.1 NM short of an x/c.

    Sweet shot AJ. After I tried it I have a whole new appreciation of how hard those shots are to pull off.

    Well, I didn't fly the planes for a living, but I thought it'd be nice to share some of the classic aircraft that are still plying their trade in the skies where I used to work. I have a few of a plane that is no longer with us that I would share, but I want to get permission from my former boss first because of the circumstances surrounding its loss.

    All pictures taken in September, 2004.

    The aircraft shown here is now flying with Desert Air Cargo in Alaska.


    One of the features of the Convairliners I always liked was the easy access to work on the engines. Much better than on the DC-3.


    Yeah, photo ID is wrong, but here's 150 getting a check done.


    The crew & mechanic hack. Had the pleasure of flying this in the right seat.


    The "stored" aircraft. Again, 153 is now with Desert Air Cargo. 156 is still in "storage".


    The source of my avatar. All of the active aircraft were run at least once a week to keep the seals moist and all of the metalic rings and seals properly seated. One of the differences between a piston and a jet (which doesn't require this run).


    A closeup of the prop. It was VERY humid that day.


    Yep, these planes are USED.


    I'll post some pictures of one of my jumpseat flights later.

    Great, can't wait to see more of those classic birds in flight!

    And amazing shot there, AJ! Love it!

    Well, I guess one enthusiastic post is good enough for me to post again...

    Anyway, here's some pictures of a jump seat flight from Rickenbacker to Charleston, WV ("Charlie West") and back subbing for the Mountain Air F-27 which was down for maintenance (it was to be replaced by an ATR-42 less than 3 months later and we ended up flying for them for almost a month).

    Pulling into the FedEx Ramp



    Cruising at all of 7000 feet on a very hazy day. Took a while to get there too. A full load of freight resulted in us just barely being able to make 500FPM for the climb.



    The First Officer. Great guy, he also did the repair and restoration work on Bud Rude's DeHavilland Heron N82D



    The Captain. Lots of Convair time, great source of information, very good stick.



    Don't remember what river this is, but it's the one that is the northwestern border to West Virginia.



    Descending into Charlie West in the setting sun.



    I know the airport is out there somewhere. ATC said it was.



    Well, at least we found the city.



    Ahh, there's the airport. My first time to CRW, and that's an interesting approach. US Airways Express flies airplanes on this approach. I wonder if the passengers ever saw this view what they'd think?



    Lining up



    Solid final.



    Little explanation - Convairs are equipped with reversible pitch propellers. The #1 propeller didn't want to "turn over" and as a result, this picture was taken with us braking hard with both engines once the #1 did finally turn over. We got stopped with plenty of runway left, but at such a heavy weight landing weight and relatively short (5,000 foot) runway, my personal pucker factor was going up even though the flight crew wasn't too concerned (it was my first jumpseat after all). I've had one more of these landings before. US Airways Express into Dayton, the pilot landed long and a bit fast and had to brake hard as well to keep from running off the end.



    Taxiing into the ramp. You can see on of the WVANG C-130s off to the left.



    Coming back into Columbus. I thought this was a good shot to show how the inside of the airplane is lit up at night.
