Short Final for 5 May 2003

Recommended Posts

From the wonderful folks at Avweb.......While flying between Ft Worth TX and Baton Rouge, LA I had to make a fuel stop as the Yak has only a 31 gallon tank to keep wayward Russian trainees close to home. I chose Many,La for a quick turn around and then on to BTR. After landing in Many, I taxied up to the pump, jumped out and streched my legs. While enjoying the small airport environment on this beautiful day, the silence was broken by the sound of 3 turbine Air Tractors coming in at low level and landing. They taxied smartly up to the parking area close to the fuel pumps and spun around into their parking spots and shut down their engines. All three pilots jumped down from their Air Tractors and started walking toward me. One of the pilots yelled out "Do you speak English?" in his thick Texas accent. All I could think to say was, "Nhyet." Doc BryantЯ сказал бы он сделало довольно наилучшим образом для того чтобы мочьпонять диалект. :-laugh1
