More Phantom Phun from Mojave Skies by Alan Radecki
On Thursday, BAE had QF-4 Phantom 73-167 up for a post-conversion FCF, and on one of the low passes, the pilot showed just how much of a "chore" it is to do his job, as he cranked the old girl almost inverted in a tight turn to downwind!

This Day In Women's Aviation from You Fly, Girl by Cathy Gale
I received my This Day in Women's Aviation desk calender from today.
I'm quite pleased wit the information - one snippet of information per each of the 365 days in the year, as per any other desk calendar, sitting on a sturdy black plastic base.
It's a maiden effort, however, and so instead of individual photographs or illustrations of the pilot concerned for each day, the illustration for each day is only of the Powder Puff Pilot logo.

Mister Dickenson from Another Time by DT Linn
Received an email from Addison Pemberton with news of the first flight of Mister Dickenson. Looks to be a mean machine!
Here's a little information on Bruce Dickenson's hybrid "Mister Dickenson". First off this is not a modified Howard DGA, Bruce Dickenson, who's grandfather was one of the original founders of the Santa Paula Airport in the 1920's designed and build "MR. D " from scratch. He emphasizes that he borrowed a bunch from Benny Howard's, DGA and Howard's famous racer Mr. Mulligan designs and why not. He was pretty familiar with the Howard line of airplanes. The Dickenson family has been flying the same Howard DGA for almost half a century. ...

Monika Petrillo has never been a person to postpone her dreams. So at 24 she decided to get a pilot's license. A year later, her father surprised her by learning to fly as well. As the movie begins, they take off together to circumnavigate the continent of Australia.
The only woman pilot in a group of eleven people, Monika experiences the true freedom of flight above one of the most untouched places on earth. As she becomes exposed to Australian culture, she learns about the Walkabout, a spiritual journey the Aborigines have valued for tens of thousands of years. That inspires her to use this trip to take stock of her own spiritual household. The first step toward that end is to relax. But that proves much more difficult than she thought: a tight schedule, careful and constant maintenance of the aircraft, pot-holed dirt runways, mechanical failures, sudden loss of visibility and unpredictable crosswinds keep her both too busy and too uptight ...

Aeorophare For Indy, Anyone? from Advance Indiana by Advance Indiana
Indianapolis-based Aerophare America wants to erect a 20-story, enclosed balloon ride in downtown Indianapolis. White River Park is a preferred location for the $2.5 million structure according to the IBJ's Chris O'Malley. The company is best known for tethered balloons it operates at Disney's amusement parks. The enclosed structure is intended to eliminate the problem high winds pose for balloon rides. Riders would be charged a fee of $4-$8. The outer skin of the balloon would also be used by the operator for advertising purposes. At night, the balloon would be illuminated. The operators are willing to foot the cost of the construction and enter into a revenue-sharing agreement with White River Park.

PlaneMadness Episode 45

Our guest today is Mitch Johnson and he is a former blimp pilot. We recently had the opportunity to chat and I found many aspects of that job to be quite fascinating.
