    It was a pleasure meeting you and talking airplanes. You're the first forum member I've met
    since joining. I have yet to get back to the important stuff, work is definitely getting in the
    way!

    Where I live days that don't get into the 60's are fairly unusual. I'm not doing aircraft
    deliveries anymore so my new standard shouldn't cause me to miss many flights. I tossed all my

    Any temperature with a "5" in front of it is no go open cockpit. Been there, done the thermal

    I think the two camera idea is good. In trying to critique a flight two views is better than

    used but if ...
