Why I need Steve's number

Recommended Posts

The very gifted Steve Drabek recently showcased the consequences of insufficient planning for stormy weather, and was given a number to call for those who don't quite do flying just right. He was kind enough to promise to pass that number on to me, I just wanted to show him why I think I should also have that number. I would discuss it with my instructor, but, they are, understandably, hard to come by now.

Steve, if you're reading this, you have nothing to feel bad about, you have followed the old aviation guideline of landing at least as many times as you have taken off ... that is not true for all of us :blush:

Ah, thanks guys, I appreciate the reassurance. I guess if the flying doesn't work out, I am in a good position to open a sushi restaurant :biggrin:

Hey Francois,

That number was actually for the FAA to report my violation of the flight plan (KBOS not my filed divert airfield.):blink:

Brian offered it to be because is always making sure I fly by the rules, and he should know being actual flight-crew on the 747.  It's only fitting since I give him reciprocal grief on his painting (which is fantastic with his latest FedEx 747)

As for the bent prop...I can touch up the paint you scraped off...but the modeler will have to do the un-bending, hehe.

Yeah, thing about that crash is that it happened in low visibility at Inhambane in Mozambique ... I didn't file a divert airfield either :blush:. Well, that along with several other violations of the rules on that particular day. Though, if the FAA never finds out about this, it would probably not be a bad thing for me.

I appreciate the offer to repaint my wreck, hopefully the modeller doesn't take this kind of abuse of his creation personally, I love my little Cessna, though it may not be obvious from that picture.
