Re: Field Of Dreams 2021 Pictures

 

Hey Bruce,
Finally got the time to look at all the great photos.
Goooood memories.  They will all go into a file for future reminiscing.  
Thanks for posting em.
 
So glad you made it home ok Dave.  We were worried about you driving that hard.  And thanks for allowing me to help with the rescue.
You have a good library of photos for memories.
 
And I really enjoyed reading everyone's flight reports.  I can certainly relate.  It seems we all had a decision or two to make.
 
Thanks again to everyone for making this a memorable weekend.
I couldn't have enjoyed it more.
Keith

Hi All
Just to let everyone know, I got my Q2 home safely, "landing" back in Orange at 11:30 pm EDT. I'm beat after all that driving, so I'll follow up with more details when I get a little rest. Bruce and Joanne, Rod, Jon, Kevin and Keith, I can't thank you enough for coming to the rescue. I'll be in touch soon. This entire Q group is really pretty special.... the best. I'm going to get to work as soon as I can with the repair of N68DD. You'll hear from me soon.

Thank goodness for civil defense investment.

It was nice hanging around with the remainder of the group and a nice pizza was served up by Honey Lamb. I also was awarded a nifty little trophy for the High Time Quickie. I'm showing 2,080 hours right now.

I departed a little before 3:00, it was quite a bit bumpier than the arrival trip. You can see looking on FlightAware (N202SH) the morning flight was a lot straighter than the bumpy afternoon flight. You can also tell that I don't have an autopilot. The  headwind was about on my nose, so I was only making about 150 kts. groundspeed, sometimes worse.

About 80 miles out, I flew directly over the Pauhuska H76 airport at 5,500 feet,  I could see Dave's yellow truck still in front of the hanger. This was about 3:30 in the afternoon.

My engine is producing some noise over the radio, which made it challenging to pick up all the frequencies that ATC was giving me. I'll have to work on that one,  it might have something to do with my electronic ignition.

Further along, there were some beautiful cumulus, making the ride very very pretty. Enid to Carbondale landed at the 3-hour mark. The runway next to our T-hangers sure looks skinny compared to the Enid runway.

So it was a good day with almost six hours of flying  and I was rewarded with a beautiful wife and an adult beverage.

About 9:00 the next morning, I got a call from Dave dugas, and he was in Dayton Ohio already! Turns out he drove most of the night, with just a 2-hour nap in there somewhere. What a madman.

Thanks again to Bruce and Joanne you guys did a great job as usual. I wonder who's going to take care of it next year?

The thermos bottle variometer took me to 15k in my Ez-Riser in 1979 over Big Bear,Ca. Bic pens and styrofoam balls.

Thanks Charlie,

Nice of you to host that fly in. That was a very memorable day for me also. Probably the first time I had seen a Quickie fly other than OSH. 

The orange cylinder is the reservoir for the variometer, on occasion I can get double or triple the normal climb rate if the thermals are strong. If you aren't a glider pilot this might not make any sense. The aux tank goes behind the seat.

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!!

Re: Another flight report

Frankenbird Vern
 

 I've driven on the hiway past Pawhuska airport which can be seen in your photo. It is true the airport is some several miles distance West of the town, but at least they have an airport (none in Mannford)!  You were about 45 miles North of my place when you took this photo, Sam.
 
 Funny about Enid being on the wrong side of the tracks.  As Bruce can tell you maybe the OSU/OU rivalry has something to do with that. 😊   Congradulations on your reaching 2000+ hours!  

 Looks like Dave is going to have some investigation to do on the oil burn track. The engine was spitting out hot metal shards on wet oil as it was grenading. Not good!

 I dunno if I will see you guys next FOD or not because these contract jobs inside the big factory can sometimes be kinda captive. I don't know yet what they are in a bind with, but to bring in "hired guns" like myself it usually is a major cluster they have themselves backed into. This will make the 7th Contract Manufacturing Engineering job I have had at Boeing including Wichita and Everett/Renton. 

 I just hope I am not at a desk next to a window. Torture in Everett or Renton in Winter. Boeing only does that to folks being punished because all day and all night the sky is drizzle and different shades of gray. Better we stay close to our vitamin D lights. I'll have my Q coffee cup on the desk tho so that will definitly make it better.

"Field Of Dreams" 2021 Report

Bruce Crain
 

Howdy all from balmy Oklahoma!
Field Of Dreams is "in the book"!  Trivia question, where did the Field Of Dreams title come from?  Quickies for $200!  
 
Over all we had 11 States represented NM, AZ, IA, IN, MASS, CA, OK, CO,IL, KS, UT!
6 Q's with 3-TriQ 200. 2-Q2, 1-Q200.
9-Other planes
Total planes-15
 
A total of 29 people attended the event!
 
We always learn something when at FOD and this year it was a learning experience for a group of Q-Bees who drove to Pawhuska, OK to help Dave Dugas load his Q2 into a large box truck and send him off to Orange, Massachusetts to rebuild a couple of things.  He will need a new engine and repair to the bottom of the belly.  We are pulling for him to get it done and continue enjoying his Oshkosh winner.  Dave had his engine blow up but put it down in professional style on the Pawhuska runway.  No one could have done it any better.  When I caught up with him, to bring him back to Enid, we both surmised that Jesus was instrumental in protecting him.  Thank You Jesus for letting us keep Dave!
And that's how the event started!  
 
While I was gone helping Dave, Honey Lamb welcomed Jon Finley and his RV 4, Charlie Johnson and his Friend David Bramlett in Charlie's Tri Pacer with lots of luggage etc.  Then Kevin Boddicker arrived in his TriQ200 to our wonderful surprise!  Keith Welsh flew in his Thorp T18 for his 1st and longest cross country trip and Rodney Herzig brought his beautiful Cozy 3!  Dave Dugas and I arrived in my Trusty RV6.  Phil Langford (CA) drove in with Jon Hoxie(NM).  Al Spratford, a Dragon Fly builder from Colorado Springs arrived and met us at Enid Brewery for supper.  We sang happy birthday to Honey Lamb at supper!  (She still looks 18)!  The group then was welcomed into our home for more fun and fellowship!  Phil Langford showed videos of old Ottawa Field of Dreams as well as Springfield.  It was fun seeing our younger skinnier tighter skinned selves.
 
Friday morning we gathered for breakfast at the hotel.  After much more jocularity we moved to the airport to welcome Friday arrivals.  Vern Lehman from Manford, OK is building a "Frankenbird" Q/Dragonfly derivative.  Sam Kittle drove his hot rod Challenger.  Sam is flying his Luscombe and building his Q200 in Angels Camp, CA.
Jay Scheevel made his 2nd appearance in his highly modified TriQ 200+ from Grand Junction, CO.  We had a delicious lunch at Barnstormers on the field.  We later threw down a few steaks at Cherokee Land and Cattle Company.  We helped Dave Dugas with his plans to obtain a truck and tie downs etc for his trip back home.
After supper people departed for the hotel and Honey Lamb and I got all "gussied up" for the Vance Air force 80th Celebration and Dance with a 1940's theme!
Everyone was very tired after a big day.
 
Saturday morning after breakfast at the hotel, we moved our planes into the joint use hanger (where the Vance 80th anniversary celebration happened the night before).  Keston gave us free hanger rent for improvising for the Vance 80th celebration.  Sammy Hoskins flew in from Carbondale, IL in his fast, fast Q200.  I clocked him on Flight Aware at 210 mph!  Dave McConahy flew over in his Q2 from Okmulgee, OK (how would you pronounce that big bads)?!  I (Bruce) gave Sam Kittle a little time in my TriQ 200 before we arrived at the join use hanger.  I think Sam is getting close to 1st flight in his Q200!  Greg and Stephanie Garee flew in there Cozy 3 from Tulsa, OK along with their friend,  Greg Hale,  in his RV 10 and passenger Lyle Monkey.  We had Arlene Martinez, Brian Martinez widow and their son Sten Martinez and his daughter stop by for awhile from OKC!  Phil Langford now owns Brian's Q200!  They had a great time connecting. We sent Dave Dugas and loading crew off to Pawhuska to load the Q2.  They were loaded with lots of tie downs, tires, pillows, etc.   Gerry Lynn Fore, Enid, OK ,came by with pictures of past Ottawa fly in times.  Everyone looked sooo young and it was one of the largest Q/Dfly events in history 1995!  Mike Shuck of Wichita, KS drove down to see everyone.  He presented a talk on airfoils last year.  My buddies Gene Martin- Lancair and Mike Porter-RV6 also brought their planes around and joined us for a while.  Ken Girty also from Enid stopped by for a while.
Jay was able to fix Dave McConahy's coax  after we had reviewed the light signals syllabus.  His radio worked fine for taxi and take off. A group picture was taken to commemorate the event.  We then departed for Blaze's BBQ and the banquet.  Jay and I sang a song that Jay had written in the style of Johnny Cash about "Builder Prison Blues".  It was a scream and everyone wants CD's.  We will send the video in another e-mail.
 
Awards were given out by myself at first and then I turned it over to Honey Lamb.  Mary Masal had awards several years ago and stole the show.  So I figured maybe Honey Lamb could do the same.  She didn't know she was going to MC but she was funny and gave out great hugs.  I had to "tap out" Kevin Boddicker as he was just enjoying it to much!  
Best of Show- Rodney Herzig Cozy 3
Best cockpit-  Keith Welsh - Thorpe T18
Best Modifications- Jay Scheevel  TriQ200+ (Jabiru Engine)
Best Q/DFly- Kevin Boddicker TriQ200
High Time- Sammy Hoskins Q200 2000+ hours
Red Badge Of Courage-  Dave Dugas- Q2  Engine issue
 
Afterwards we retired to Crain's for Braum's ice cream and fellowship.  We did a Facetime call with Jim Masal as he was very disappointed he couldn't join us due to Covid.  Everyone loves seeing Jimmey! He can wire bush on the phone!  Farewells were said and everyone scattered until next year!
 
Sunday morning weather was severe clear and everyone was able to leave by 8:30 am.  We really enjoyed hosting and seeing everyone!!
2022 location pending.  Will let you know.  Keep building, flying, and maintaining!
 
Bruce and Honey Lamb

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!

Jimmy,

 

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!

Subject: [Q-List] Another flight report

 

So, I might as well throw my flight report in. In these times of COVID we want to maintain social distancing so I decided to just make it a day trip to the FOD. The trip from Southern Illinois Airport, KMDH, to KWDG is 417 nautical miles. I left Carbondale right before the tower opened and flew for about half an hour on top of some broken low-lying fog.   I had updated my Garmin 196 database day before, but when I got to the airport I was dismayed to find that Oklahoma was not in it. Since I last updated the database, they split the USA into two halves. Carbondale is on the right side and Enid was in the wrong side.  So I just used Avare on my tablet which was fine. It was nice and smooth and I used flight following so Sandy could follow my progress. It was a good trip. Two hours and 45 minutes. Bruce said he was following me on FlightAware I said I was doing about 200 miles an hour.   My Dynon was showing 180 mph TAS.

 

I made it to Enid just in time to say hello and then goodbye to Dave Dugas and the rest of his pit crew.

 

It was nice hanging around with the remainder of the group and a nice pizza was served up by Honey Lamb. I also was awarded a nifty little trophy for the High Time Quickie. I'm showing 2,080 hours right now.

 

I departed a little before 3:00, it was quite a bit bumpier than the arrival trip. You can see looking on FlightAware (N202SH) the morning flight was a lot straighter than the bumpy afternoon flight. You can also tell that I don't have an autopilot. The  headwind was about on my nose, so I was only making about 150 kts. groundspeed, sometimes worse.

 

About 80 miles out, I flew directly over the Pauhuska H76 airport at 5,500 feet,  I could see Dave's yellow truck still in front of the hanger. This was about 3:30 in the afternoon.

 

My engine is producing some noise over the radio, which made it challenging to pick up all the frequencies that ATC was giving me. I'll have to work on that one,  it might have something to do with my electronic ignition.

 

Further along, there were some beautiful cumulus, making the ride very very pretty. Enid to Carbondale landed at the 3-hour mark. The runway next to our T-hangers sure looks skinny compared to the Enid runway.

 

So it was a good day with almost six hours of flying  and I was rewarded with a beautiful wife and an adult beverage.

 

About 9:00 the next morning, I got a call from Dave dugas, and he was in Dayton Ohio already! Turns out he drove most of the night, with just a 2-hour nap in there somewhere. What a madman.

 

Thanks again to Bruce and Joanne you guys did a great job as usual. I wonder who's going to take care of it next year?

Hi Keith,

 

Thanks for the report. Sounds like you did some careful piloting. Love that picture out of the Thorp!

 

Cheers,

Jay

 Hello,

Thought I'd send along another group of photos for ya'lls enjoyment....maybe

They're pretty much made up of the field trip to the town with the funny name where Dave's plane was except there was no town in site.

Dave was a very good sport considering the stress he was under.  We all worked well together toward a common goal.

No doubt the highlight of my trip.

 

The last photo is the what greeted me through much of IL.  I wondered why Sullivan, MO was calling for IFR when every where else was VFR.

Well.....I found out when I got there.  I did wait until it went VFR to traverse that area and ended up scud running in mist at 1200' for a few miles.

Flying that low in unfamiliar terrain one keeps an eagle on the map for tower locations.

 

The clouds were quickly coming up to my altitude, 7500', so thought I'd just run below...bad decision!  So punched back up at first chance.

Should have stayed where I was.

My trip from Terre Haute, IN consisted of 1378 statue miles more or less, 75.3 gallons and 9.4 hrs on the airplane (Thorp T18) with an avg fuel burn of 8.01gph and 18.3 mpg.

The fuel cost per hour came in at about $5.95 

 

Thanks again to everyone who were able to attend and especially to Bruce and Joanne.

Thank you

Keith

I too made it home about 12:30.
Nice tail wind first leg. Great tailwind second leg.
That means a crosswind at home. Managed that too.

Thanks to B,J for their hospitality again!
6.2 hours to Enid. 4.7 hours home.
Both ways, the last hour and a half was fairly rough air. No hill for a climber though!

Hope to see everyone next year!

Nice flight report Sam.  For no autopilot that was quite a straight course line!  Mine typically look more like soggy spaghetti.
Fly Safe!

So, I might as well throw my flight report in. In these times of COVID we want to maintain social distancing so I decided to just make it a day trip to the FOD. The trip from Southern Illinois Airport, KMDH, to KWDG is 417 nautical miles. I left Carbondale right before the tower opened and flew for about half an hour on top of some broken low-lying fog.   I had updated my Garmin 196 database day before, but when I got to the airport I was dismayed to find that Oklahoma was not in it. Since I last updated the database, they split the USA into two halves. Carbondale is on the right side and Enid was in the wrong side.  So I just used Avare on my tablet which was fine. It was nice and smooth and I used flight following so Sandy could follow my progress. It was a good trip. Two hours and 45 minutes. Bruce said he was following me on FlightAware I said I was doing about 200 miles an hour.   My Dynon was showing 180 mph TAS.

I made it to Enid just in time to say hello and then goodbye to Dave Dugas and the rest of his pit crew.

It was nice hanging around with the remainder of the group and a nice pizza was served up by Honey Lamb. I also was awarded a nifty little trophy for the High Time Quickie. I'm showing 2,080 hours right now.

I departed a little before 3:00, it was quite a bit bumpier than the arrival trip. You can see looking on FlightAware (N202SH) the morning flight was a lot straighter than the bumpy afternoon flight. You can also tell that I don't have an autopilot. The  headwind was about on my nose, so I was only making about 150 kts. groundspeed, sometimes worse.

I believe Enid was on the LEFT side.
