Hope You're Sitting Down!

Hi Everyone,


Hope you all are doing well. And hope you are sitting down… find a chair real quick...you just might feel faint… I wanted to let you know that I have been working hard on editing together all the video footage that I took at our Field of Dreams event last year in Enid, and finally have a really nice presentation to share with you. In the past, I had made professional quality DVD sets, complete with a nice case, graphics, motion menus, and even spread over two discs, but all these years later, I’m not even sure who might still have DVD players around. I do, but then I guess I’m a dinosaur! So I am posting the video on YouTube, it’s free for the whole world to see, and no worries about getting a bad disc in the mail, or region mis-matches, or sending me a check and all….


It came out to just over an hour and a half, and is a nice encapsulation of the fun, food and fellowship that we shared last September in Enid. I was able to retain most of our big Saturday night Banquet proceedings, though that alone, ran well over 3 hours. But the history that Jim Masal shared of our organization is priceless, and that made the cut. As an actor/filmmaker, I have learned that less is more, yet there is still a story to be told, so I hope everyone enjoys it.


Please let me know if you experience any issues, like sync problems, gaps, stupid ads, and I’ll try to get back to YouTube on those. It took almost 8 hours alone to upload and process, so there could be some hiccups, but I wanted it in hi-def, so I hope will look good to you. My final edited version that did finally get uploaded seemed to play fine. Stream it if you can to your big-screen TV, it should look great! Please feel free to leave comments too!


I put in countless hours of work on it, so I hope it will be a sweet reminder of the time we spent together last year, and for those who weren’t able to attend, I hope the video will help you think about trying to make our next event and will serve as a shot-in-the-arm for you to keep building. We always come away refreshed, encouraged and re-vitalized as builders and flyers!

Enjoy and let me know how y’all like it!


Be safe out there, and fly safe,

John,
It's Kevin's fly in, but I'm pretty sure everyone is welcome - other canards as well any other type.  It's just an excuse to get together and talk airplanes!  So the more the merrier.

Is Spring Fling open to Long Ezes & other canard aircraft? I am going to post/ ask if any of those aircraft owners are interested. If not I may ask my cousin whom lives in OK to fly his Bellanca.

Spring Fling is next weekend and I think I'm finally ready!  I replaced a cylinder (twice actually!), but it seems to be running great.  Oil temperatures have come down, so I'm hoping the rings have seated.  KDEH is only an hour away, and I've made several flights longer than that.

Today I washed and waxed the plane.  I don't think it has been this clean in several years!  I think I'm finally ready to go!!  Kevin, I hope you got your order in for good weather, because I'm excited to finally go somewhere!

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone next weekend.

Hi Keith,

 

I would like to watch your Zoom presentation, but I am not finding a note with the link to the Youtube version. Can you provide it?

 

Cheers,

Hey Keith, 

Sure enjoyed seeing you and your plane yesterday on Zoom after some years, it still looks great!  The quality of the video didn't detract at all from the informative visit, thanks for the detailed tour, and thank you Sam as well, for setting it up!

Sure is good seeing another Q-1 up close, you've done well keeping it in the air!

Anyway, landed and shut down with 100.1 hours showing on the Hobbs. Not much for you high-timers, but passing the hundred hour mark seems significant to me.

I remember breaking the century mark. I too thought it a big deal - because it is.  Now I am closing in on 1000hrs (100 to go).  Another big deal to me.  Old news to the likes of Sam, Paul and some others.

 

Beware. According to stats, you have become at risk.  Stay vigilant.

Congrats! Jerry

Thanks Jim and Paul. I will keep a close eye on things, Jim. I have had the filters off twice. Nothing in them yet, but I sloshed both tanks before installing them, so that probably reduced the loose debris to a certain extent.

 

Cheers,

Jay

I second what Paul said. That is a great accomplishment Jay. Especially at the altitude and densities you operate in.  Well done.

 

Now just keep an eye on those little Gremlins👍 Really keep an eye on fuel filters as the glass work inside the tank is still shedding.

When installing the foam from BL 15 to BL48 and to BL100 they all fit very well. When going to install the BL31.9 jig, it does not fit quite level, It is off about 1/16th in the front.

Hopefully this will give me some straight structural support for the foam. If need be I can support the channel between the jigs. This will allow me not to use the 31.9 template.
