    I was just thinkin about this. I'm curious to see everyone's planes. and I don't mean models. I mean real aircraft. pilots and aircraft owners/renters, if you have a bird, we'd like to see it! I know I don't own or rent any aircraft, and I'm not a real certified pilot (even though I know quite a bit)

    If I'm correct, there's an F4 Phantom, a Huey, and a AH-6 little bird Flyboy?

    Yep!

    I like the Supercub and not shown, the T-34. The Provost is a lot of fun to fly as well. I'm working on my type rating on both the L-29 and Provost.


    Love the Bird Dog! Was the PT-22 tricky?

    Yeah, the bird-dog was a labour of love for my old boss, over 10 years in the rebuild, and it came out better than new. funnily enough, the paint scheme is pretty hard to see when its on the ground.

    The PT-22 was 'different' on the ground, beautiful to fly in the air, we only ground-looped it once, landing with a swinging wind, but luckily, no damage. Contrary to what I've read, they spin quite nicely too, but this one had a tendency to go past the vertical when you pushed the nose down with two-up, probably due to the fwd C of G.

    Unfortunately, we don't have much in the way of jets down here, so the chances of me gettingany flying in one of them is fairly slim.

    Currently, just the CT-4 at the bottom.

    I have flown all of those above, at one time or another, just to clarify.



    Except for the helicopter.


    They scare me.
