    The good folks at Barrett Precision Engines told me to squirt LPS2 through both plug ports. The LPS lubricants come in an aerosol can with those straw like nozzles.

    It is better. I remain weary of mostly recycled articles from Budd Davisson. There is another one in the current issue.

    Ask a question. Sift through the answers looking for one that agrees with a specific POV. Discount all the others. SOP. ;-)

    That stinks.

    What was the (apparent) accident mode? Runway loss of control leading to gear failure? Looks like all 4 prop blades took a hit, so the prop must have been turning.

    So, Tx. Is that your airplane? If not, who's airplane is it, and what are/were the circumstances?

    Is this the airplane with the electrical/flap issues, or are you intermingling a couple of...

    Multiple sources. I had one of the little battery powered airplanes like in Chicago Randy's post. I was also responsible for the demise of an entire balsawood forest via my consumption of Sleek...

    I haven't watched the airshow in years, save for the occasional unique act. BUT, the airshows are popular with kids and with townies from Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago, etc. so they increase...

    I would offer "At least they tried." Seriously. The good thing is it ain't locked in for perpetuity.

    It'll be interesting to see if the new procedures actually help when the weather or other outside influences cause problems. Best I could tell, this year there were no weather events or runway...

    I look at it as a participation award. Which means I basically don't pay any attention to it.

    They took us to the event where I saw you on Monday night. I don't think Sleepy Hollow would have been a problem.

    Before and after the show, the Kobussen folks can get their vehicles inside the gate, so that may be an option if you arrive early and leave late. Beyond that, there is the Homebuilt Welcome wagon,...

    You've stated multiple times in the thread (Post 1 and Post 12, for example) that your objective is to have the B-29 at Oshkosh. I'm sure EAA would welcome the B-29 on Boeing Square (static or maybe...

    EAA's responsibility is to the rank and file at EAA. Not to help the CAF make money or to help the CAF with its B-29 ride program. If the CAF wants to put on a WWII history demonstration, they can...

    I think it really varies. In HBC, it was OK, if occasionally slow. On the other hand, on Tuesday evening, we were in Scholler on Stits, trying to pull up a map of the campgrounds to find some...

    You realize that (other than the tri-motor), EAA doesn't use its aircraft to give rides at Oshkosh. They give rides on the B-17 and B-25 from Appleton, IIRC.

    My solution has always been to take my oldest, rattiest undies and socks, and put them in the trash at the end of the show. Same with the towel I use after the camp showers. If I need more of any...

    I thought the latest direction was that you would be OK if either the instructor or the airplane had the LODA?
