Nacho's pics

The wing wash-out is obvious to me on the first pic. Must be quite a forgiving aircraft.

Another nice thing as I was gonna run out of personal pics, not flying since August, here is my chance to upload and publish some nice ones from other fellows

Now, before anyone screams, the pilot owns the plane!

He's not flying low; it's just an illusion cause the lake is quite deep!

Cat Driver has nicely prevented a thread hijack about waterskiing wheel planes by creating a thread for it in the general forums:
For sure the fur can fly over this issue, if you want to really get action try bringing this up with the Super Cub group in Alaska.

So I thought I would see what this group thinks and stand back and watch.

Aviation and pilots are a breed apart as we all think we can do most anything and sometimes do.

One thing for sure with the water skiing thing you only need to fu.k up once to turn an expensive airplane into junk, and the insurance company is not going to be happy.

Back to pictures....... :smt023

Bezerker....if you ever lose your medical, and I sincerely pray you don't, you have got the makings for publishing picture books of STUNNING images of Canada.

God that is just stunning. I just sent a link to this page to all of my family.

Thank you. Just breath taking images.

The very unfortunate consequence of filthy camps.... A bear that wouldn't go away posing with the head logger. This in addition to the 21 mice I slaughtered in my room over a 48hr period....
