There is a large percentage of Banjo Ben members that also have their wings...might as well talk about it!

Pictures and Such

Postby Stich » Sun Apr 29, 2012 10:03 am

OK, I'll start this thread off by posting some pictures of flying and plane related stuff. I've got lots but please feel free to post anything flying related for those interested. If there's an interest here, I can post more if you like.

Nice pics, Jack! Looks like you get around. Crater Lake is pretty far away isn't it?

That is so cool, Jack! I can't wait to do a little flying out west. Getting a different perspective is why I like flying too, plus it amazes me to see God's creation at such a view. Also, everything that is stressing me out at the time seems to stay on the ground when the wheels touch off! Here are a few pics from over the last couple years.

My first instructor was the jet pilot for Hank Williams, Jr., and this is the cockpit of Hank's Citation 3...we took it on a maintenance trip this day. It was a blast to sit right seat in that bad boy!

We took that picture when we went on a 10 day tour of the Pacific North West a few years back. Dropped into some pretty off beat fields and got to see things the average guy doesn't get to when traveling by car. What an adventure it was I am truely blessed to have had the opportunity to do it.
Here's a few more

I forget where this was. There were so many beautiful rivers and lakes that we flew over.

I'm jealous Ben. :mrgreen: I'd LOVE to fly that Citabria. What a blast that must have been.

I've never flown into any high altitude fields...we're sitting at ~550 MSL here...I'd have to rethink how much to eat for supper before taking off!

I am a pilot in the Air Force. I have thousands of pics. I'll find some of my more memorable ones and post them here.

Below is my Christmas card picture from 2006. Included is my lovely and gracious wife Carolyn. I don't know that I ever gave my aviation background on the old forums, so here it is: I love aviation. I live on an airpark (50f) southwest of Fort Worth. I fly single engine land and sea, multi-engine, and gliders. I like instructing and I'd be happy to give a free BFR or IPC (or whatever) to any banjoBenner who wants one. My wife flies for American Airlines. If anyone is ever this way, let me know. We'd love to have you visit.

I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.
