Good afternoon fellas,

I know this is way off topic for our group but I've been doing a query of people I know across this country and haven't found one person that knows someone (personally) who contracted and died from Covid19. To further that, I would like to ask the same question of you. Yes or no.

I find this kind of weird.

Yes.  Friend’s father-in-law in upstate NY died. His brother is home with it.  His sister-in-law is intubated in the ICU.  He is quarantined at home suspected positive, but cannot get tested.

Last week I pushed the Q-200 out and did an hour of burning gas and flying around in circles.  It felt good, but my return entrance to the pattern sucked.  Today was too nice to pass up and I pushed my Fiberglass Bitch out into the daylight.  I hopped over to Marion, KMWA for pattern work, touch and goes.Their runway is 8,000 x 150, so I figured I was fairly safe.

I did 10 T&Gs. I can not remember the last time I did that many.  And I have to say, I don't think the last one was any better than the first. There's a lot to keep track of for this old fart..  Fuel management, elevator trim, reflexor, speed brake, speed, speed, speed etc., etc.

I wish I had an instructor next to me yelling at me to watch my altitude on the downwind (too high), watch my speed across the numbers (way too fast), Watch speed on the base (way to fast). Stay in closer to the runway (exacerbated by being too fast). You're too low on the final, dragging it in.

Whew!

It took almost an hour to do all 10, but I can say to myself "Thanks, I needed that".

That was really good. I used to try and go every time I was in Dayton. One day I got the official behind the ropes touch the stealth aircraft tour as a part of a training class. More than cool.

               Video Filmed With Drones Inside The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

<image001.jpg>

Screenshot of the drone video filmed inside USAF Museum at WPAFB. (Image credit: Nurk FPV)

Stunning videography. Amazing subjects. Impressive editing. Incredible flying skills.

Located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, some six miles to the northeast of Dayton, Ohio, the National Museum of the United States Air Force, the official museum of the USAF, is a must see for every aviation enthusiast:  with more than 350 aircraft and missiles on display, it’s the oldest and largest military aviation museum in the world.  You can find the Boeing B-17F Memphis Belle, several Presidential aircraft, including the Boeing 707 known as a VC-137C; the Apollo 15 Command Module Endeavour; the only surviving XB-70 Valkyrie; the F-117 Nighthawk and many, many others. In fact, the Museum hosts some of the world’s most iconic and rare American aircraft, and also some foreign aircraft, and for this reason it attracts about a million visitors each year.

However, no one has probably seen it through the birds eye view of a drone.

The video below is just fantastic. Filmed by Paul Nurkkala (NURK FPV) with DJI drones and GoPro cameras, it provides the most amazing way to explore the collection of Dayton Museum.

BTW, at 04:40 the drone hit a cable, but fortunately the incident did not harm the Cinewhoop drone, nor any aircraft.

Pretty cool, Jerry. Looks like they have moved the aircraft that used to be in the experimental hangar on the AF base over to new hangar space in the main museum and have moved some of the planes that used to be outside into new hangars in the main museum area. The video left out the WWI aircraft display area.  Best aviation museum in America, hands down!

I hate that snap sound!  I might have tried some heat on it...  Sounds like you had fun with it tho...
My non-flight report.  Our International Airport is down to one partial runway as they re-pave the intersection.  This has caused huge traffic jams with the commercial airliners and C130's and everyone on one taxiway.  I just haven't been wanting to mix it up with them.  But due to the virus it looks like most of the commercial airliners are now parked!  I saw 8 737's just sitting there today.  Maybe I got to go give flight a try again!  Crazy world.
