      Huh in the pictures of most of my landings you can see the wings flexing downward due to impact G-loading

      Too bad I didn't have a camera a few months ago, I could have taken a pic of Gern taking off from EUG.

      Me too, in fact the flight mentioned below ended rather firmly if memory serves.

      Every once in a while someone snaps a pic. This is kind of a cool shot that a guy took of us landing in Scottsdale yesterday.

      Nice...! We get in there a few times every winter, but I haven't been on the ground for more than a few minutes for quite a while. Lots of drop-and-run, or grab-and-go trips this year. I kinda' like to have a weekend down there once in a while when it's been 40 degrees and raining at home for a month straight.
      30 degrees and 30 knots in Cleveland last night. Quite a change from Scottsdale!

      I know. I need some time off-call, but we're the only crew for the plane and have no relief. It's been selling on transcon trips instead of northeast <--> Florida day-trips as we expected, so we've spent more time flying celebs out of SoCal than we have on our own coast. The worst is one-ways that end up in Denver.... we wind up stuck there for days and then doing overnight trips back east eventually.


      Today I got to sit in a stunningly gorgeous F900.... I need a Falcon job asap. This living paycheck-to-paycheck and in hotels 24 days/month isn't sustainable.

      Yeah, that sucks. We generally go crazy for a few days straight, then a lull. We're in the middle of a 6-day run right now, but then we have a 8 days with nothing on the schedule.
      I highly recommend a Falcon job.

      I know it disgusting quality, but bare in mind it was taken with a very.."early" form of a picture phone in an airplane, on a hot day. They're prowlers that I had to wait for to land when I was flying at a Navy base!

      Here's the final result of the trip. 21 legs in 6 days. Pretty entertaining, but I'm glad to have a week off.

      KRUQ and KBVY have absolutely great FBOs: Rowan County at RUQ and North Atlantic Air at BVY. Both airports are tight taxiing with an 86 foot wing, but great service.

      Will do. We rolled in Tuesday night at 21:00 and parked at Lehigh Valley Aviation; airborne by 10:30 Wednesday morning. just enough time to eat, sleep, eat again and blast off.
      We get in there a couple of times a year. I'll let you know the next time.
