As always, thanks very much to our hosts and fellow pilots, and for your great work putting these flights together Herr Fledermause.... hopefully more of us will join you for other Sunday flights coming up.

I have to say thanks to the Escorts, Cargo haulers and ATC for getting our cargo safely to the new location! The locals can now have essentials such as Lager, Marshmallows, corn chips and hot dogs....:wink:

Here are some pics from along the way...

Cool! A functional autopilot woulda been nice for this flight, but then on the other hand it's good for the ol' flying skills to trim a bird up by hand for those long-distance flights, and getting it just right to hold formation is even better.

I know a working pitot heat would have been welcome - my airspeed indicator failed during the last part of the flight, but it seemed to be conicidental with when I zoomed down on that airfield and came back. I was watching my speed but got going pretty fast, and just thought I'd busted it. Was surprised to hear that 1Bullet and Hoppa were having the same problem.

Thanks again for having us stanky pigs along. I know it was unusual to allow for a second aircraft type in the flight and the extra effort it causes participants who also have to download it to see it. It's very much appreciated and I certainly hope more JG300 members join you guys for these weekly flights - in the normal specified aircraft of course. That Howard is gorgeous and I hope to see some Beech D-18 action too!

Can't wait to see what flights and territory are coming up next!
