This is how my brother says hello when he comes into town. I thought my neighbor was going to have a heart attack.

I knew everyone would see it on Facebook...except Shirley. I am going to try to catch her here tomorrow morning. It's hard for me to focus, especially in the morning, so I pretty much just see who is here. I can't type without looking at the keys like most people do...lol My eyes are the best right now than they've been all day.

Every time my brother does that in his plane people call the police and report a plane crashing when they see it from a distance. He is a good pilot...I have been up with him many times, back in the old days when we'd do aerial photography.

Rachel can type super fast while carrying on a conversation with me...never looking at the keys. If I COULD do that I would end up typing what I was saying. lol My mind can only do one thing at a time these days...and that doesn't come easy.

It was....except the Cessna didn't have air conditioning, and in the summer it was so hot in that plane it was almost unbearable....and especially since we had to keep circling the properties I was photographing, round and round and round...by the time we got back to the airport I was about ready to throw up on more than one occasion, but didn't. Another few minutes of that and I would have.

Funny, Cindy!

That was some very impressive flying! What did he drop out of the plane? Looked like something black?

I didn't see anything, but I can't see good these days. If he dropped anything out it might have been his cell phone...he has lost several of those lately flying like this...lol.
He used to fly over my house in the Cessna with several 5lb bags of flour and try to drop them so they'd land on my house...one day I was out in the yard and he dropped one 5 feet from me...I got flour bombed. lol (That's probably illegal in most states, but here it was all fun and games til somebody got an eye put out...) Rachel was a kid and when she heard him coming she would run for cover.

Joanne, my brother likes to eat, too. This summer he would fly to the lake every Saturday and do aerobatics over the lake, then land in the parking lot of the dock. He said he did it because everyone came to the plane when he landed and invited him to eat with them...lol

"Bad Brother" flew into town yesterday. He went to my sister's first, she lives in the woods near a lake. He did some stunts over her house, dropped a roll of toilet paper out of the plane, then when it unrolled he cut it in half with his wing. He flew upside down, did the death roll.......and some fishermen on the lake about a half mile away saw him doing the straight down spiral...and called 911 and said a plane had crashed.


So..he didn't know anything about that and came to my house from there and did stunts for me and my neighbors....then went back to the airport. The rescue helicopter was there taking off and my brother spoke to him on the radio for a minute, they didn't say where they were going. Turns out they were going to look for a plane crash, along with several fire departments and rescue squads in the county, state and local police...
...and my brother had no idea they were looking for HIM.

He was on his way home and I called to make sure it wasn't him (yes, he talks on the cell phone and flies a plane at the same time, but he does not text...lol)

Exciting day in a small town.....

It seems like the small town would be used to him by now.
It does sound like fun.

A few weeks ago when he landed at his hangar where he keeps his plane, state and local police were there waiting for him...after someone had called them about a possible plane crash. What he does is not illegal...he makes sure of that (except when he flies over my house). The owner of the airstrip and hangar showed the police the regulations and they left. That still doesn't make me worry any less about his antics. He bought a new plane this week that is used for stunt flying. I pray every night for his safety. I am so afraid one of these calls to 911 will be the real thing.

Junie, he is a good pilot. I have been up with him many times, and if I were ever in a situation in the air that involved a crash landing, I would want my brother to be piloting that plane.
But he is getting too "comfortable" with his stunts. He was so low over my house a few days ago I could actually see him laughing...I have a video of it. When I told him he was too low...that there was a power line 50 feet from him he said "I know....I saw it...and that's why I flew low east/west". So, he does see the power lines here...but I worry about the next place he goes. I guess that is my job as a big sister, to worry. He says I have a greater chance of getting killed just driving to the grocery store...and I know that according to the statistics that is true...but I worry about him getting this new airplane...it is made for aerobatics....and he is Evil Kneivel in the sky. nervous

Cindy, I assumed he was a good pilot---just from all that he does. I know a little about that, as Rod used to fly.

I will still pray for him to be safe, as things can happen, & we all can use an extra prayer.

Good grief...he is worrying me sick.
He has decided to back outof the plane he was buying, and wants this one...
[Linked Image]

Here's what he said about it this morning on Facebook...
Quote
This could be the one. It's called a "Smith Mini Plane". Capable of advanced aerobatics. I decided against the Blue and white EAA Biplane. It's also known as "The 2 Winged Widowmaker". This is a plane commonly seen in airshows doing routines. It can do 6+ and 6- g-forces. In other words if you sneeze you'll be traveling in the other direction upside down. Very responsive.
