    That's a classic example of too much power for a wanna be pretend cop. Sure, we appreciate the volunteers that run the show, but they do need some training and reasonable discretion.

    Oh, I agree with you... there's always some bad apples in a group. So, would you rather be unarmed? Or do you think some teen aged girl at the bag check point is going to stop them?

    Do you really think they'll stop terrorists by searching pilots attending OSH????? You need a reality check. Hell, they can't stop terrorist with airport security.

    Interesting, but there is no need that the tower made you do multiple turns. It's a first come, first served policy. Who ever will get to the runway first, should be the one that the tower...

    Glory and Tom,

    Thanks for that link, now much clearer.
    Tom, good point about the TBM accident. It's still amazing how a competent pilot can just let the plane stall. And it's happened many times.

    Perhaps I'm missing something, but why would you shut down with a control cable failure? I've had a few of them, but never had to shut down.
