Frankenbird Vern
 

 I like it! Lord knows not a one builder on this site hasn't had them blues!

 Good news..today I chatted with the contractors to complete my hangar.. Frankenbird is finally going to have a REAL house!!

 I told him I was heading to the Pacific Northwest to get them dollars but he said .."not to rush too much.. apparently there is a serious shortage of concrete!!" WHAT?? I never heard of that but I guess Portland Cement is backordered for at least a month. Wow! Never seen that happen before in my lifetime. 

 I'll get back to Oklahoma on the holiday shutdown so I will be moving the entire kit from my storage unit back into the closed hangar on my property.  After then going to surprise my family in Krasnodar...to spend New Year with them (in Orthodox country's like Russia, New Year is the same as our Christmas..so it is a major holiday). I'm pretty jazzed because I miss my mother-in-law and our funny stories. She is like my own mom was..love her to no end! Gotta get my Visa status updated as soon as I can. 

 My Brother-in-law and his family are there too. Going to be a very good holiday. I will be sure to wear my Q hat and Shirt for the photos!

Landed safely in Benson! 

 

Spent the night in Demming, NM because of pop up SIGMET cu-nimbus lightning turbulence the usual dry line stuff. That was after bumping along for hours through Texas and New Mexico.

 

Dave was amazed by the airplanes and the group and I second the FOD brings amazing things and people together.

 

I will winter over exploring the Tri-Pacer limits and mine exploring slow flight and learning dirt flying.

 

The final sorting of the squawk list and test flying the Dragonvair is planned.

 

Thanks everyone!

We ran into the dry line 150 miles before Roswell mild turbulence and sinking air kept us below 7k. We ran up against SIGMET at Demming, NM.

 

We stopped for the night, weather looks good this morning. Should be a easy cruise along I-10 to home.

 

Stay well!

Re: Back home and flight report

Frankenbird Vern
 

 Jay..  probably didn't look but all of the birds here in Oklahoma (and Kansas) have Arnold Schartznegger legs. They spend most of their lives walking..too windy to fly unless it's one way trip (whatever downwind is that day). I think that is why there are more birds in Nebraska in Summer and more of them in Texas in the Winter. They migrate but not by choice. Grins.  

 Happy to learn you didn't have to fit the rotors over the hills too much! I've seen some rather wicked events on the west range of the Sangre de Cristo.  Mountain waves to make records too if you can survive your kidneys getting beat up long enough to reach them!

 Maybe I'll see some of you at Arlington EAA if I am still at the job in July. Last time I was there not a single tandem wing arrived.  Only one or two RV's.. (haha).

Subject: [Q-List] Back home and flight report
 

Made it back home about 2PM my time (3PM if you are living on Tulsa time 😊). Thanks to the Crains for surpassing their own hospitality records year after year!

 

Now for a brief flight report:

 

Abstract:

Slogged through massive head winds! Made it home.

 

Details:

Thought life was good when I took off from Enid with a small tailwind and smooth air. That changed before I even exited Vance MOA’s. First I lost 5 mph, not bad…oh now, 10 mph, then 25 mph. Can this get worse?  How about 30 mph. Tried different altitudes, even down low, same deal, but bumpier.

 

Better land at Liberal KS and put on some more fuel. Could not download my data from the flight computer there because parked on the ramp, the airspeed was reading close to 30 mph, so the EFIS thought I was still flying! Put my finger over the pitot for 20 seconds and solved the problem.

 

OK, more fuel and off I go to my original fuel stop at Triniidad. Same headwinds, but worse. Wind direction has come around to almost on my nose now…I am seeing 105-110 mph (TAS is showing 155-160). My mind drifts back to my Cherokee 140 days, but hey now the OAT has increased from 23 to 28 and now the sun is on my shoulder…. So I land in Trinidad and put some more fuel in it and launch from there.

 

I am looking at wind forecasts over the peaks of the Sangre de Cristo range and La Vita pass. Showing 25 knots from the SW, so that is doable and I don’t see any lenticulars. So I start my cruise climb to try to get 12,500 before I try anything over the range. Good news is I have plenty of time to climb, since I am only seeing high 40’s mph over the ground: Hope no one was watching on Flightaware, they will think I am driving the courtesy car from WDG!

Still not enough altitude for my comfort, so I turn back away from the mountains to continue climbing, Same airspeed ~105, but now my groundspeed is high 160’s (moving away from home)!

Find a nice saddle to cross into the San Luis valley and now I only have 20 mph headwind alleluia. Call FS and extend my flight plan, good to go.

 

Had the Kevin Boddicker style 90 degree crosswind at home, but that seemed like a welcome relief. Plane is sleeping in its comfy hangar now.

 

Glad everyone else got home in style. Will wait to hear from Charlie. I am sure he will have a good story or two.

 

Cheers,

Jay

Thanks again Sam (Stacy) for driving me all over the place in your muscle car!  Wondered where I had left that cap, but Honey Lamb gave me a replacement before I left. See you can find Bob Farnam and give him the cap. We talked about him enough that it was like he was there.  See you next time in your Q.

Re: Terry Crouch's Quickie video is uploaded to You Tube!

CHARLES LIPKE
 

The video was great to watch. Really helps the juices flow for me. Lots of memories. Thanks for all involved, but especially Terry.

I looked it up. It was June 13, 1987, 96 Deg F, when you flew the C-150 up here for our little gathering. Flying with you and Dean in his Quickie was certainly one of those highlights as it was early in my flying. You have so far exceeding making the best use of the Quickie design and all of your improvements. If I could remember 10% of what you have taught me over the years I would be far ahead. 

Is the orange cylinder under the front fuselage cover your fuel reserve tank?

1000+ hours, fantastic!!
Keep the blue side up.
