Since this is a family forum I can't describe the anatomical reaction I had watching that video.

The fact it can fly doesn't amaze me. What gets me is I'm not sure how you could taxi that mother. Besides oversized taxiways/runways you'd need off-center taxi/runway lines for the off-center cockpit.

Well, the article stated that it will need a 3.5 kilometer runway to build up enough lift to leave the ground. But landing that thing off-center? Serious pucker factor...

Sorry you're stuck inside today. I just dropped by for a minute. I'm on a layover in Los Angeles and my daughter flew in to spend the day with me before I fly back to Tokyo tonight. I think we're going to hike up to the Hollywood sign this morning.

I almost had to work today, but we had a massive database server failure yesterday. Which is good, because my parents are in town today, and with my bro only an hour away, gonna be most of the family together.

A 3.5 kilometer runway is less 12,000 feet. That's a normal "long" runway. Denver even has a 16,000 foot runway.

Length isn't the problem (calm down BB) it's the width I'd be worried about. As you mentioned, landing off-center would require off-center runway markings for the pilot to aim for. The other thing? Crosswind landings would be a b****!

Hiking around the lake today. Might get up to high 40's.

First fissures in the frozen lake so we may be sailing by May.

Default Whew!

Well, that was MY adrenaline rush for the year:

A 2-year old disappeared here about an hour ago! Nobody knew where he was - the whole neighborhood and half the police force was here looking for him. I went looking around the lake down the road, hoping he didn't wander through a hole in the fencing somewhere.

After searching the whole area, it turns out he had wandered away into the woods across the street and fallen. Bruised and scared but safe. Thank GOD it wasn't an abduction or something - our neighborhood is just too quiet for that much drama.

All is well now. Back to Gnexing!

Yes, north of the 49th Parallel (and about 100km north of Vancouver). Bears are still in hibernation. We just emerged from our igloo as well.

Well, that was MY adrenaline rush for the year:

A 2-year old disappeared here about an hour ago! Nobody knew where he was - the whole neighborhood and half the police force was here looking for him. I went looking around the lake down the road, hoping he didn't wander through a hole in the fencing somewhere.

After searching the whole area, it turns out he had wandered away into the woods across the street and fallen. Bruised and scared but safe. Thank GOD it wasn't an abduction or something - our neighborhood is just too quiet for that much drama.

All is well now. Back to Gnexing!
Amen!

Welding underneath the locomotive today. I love how the smoke rolls along.

I spent the day walking around a college campus with my daughter, meeting her future roommate and her family. Information and sensory overload. Stick a fork in me...I'm done.

Exciting and exhausting!

We spent the day emptying my daughter's room and cleaning it. She has serious hoarder potential. Its really kinda scary. But we got through it and now its time to try to clean up my room too since I was like a hurricane this week.

Adrenaline rush is right! Thank goodness it ended up being the good kind with his discovery.

Everyone was outside enjoying the weather I think. Or inside doing necessary spring cleaning.

Aren't daughters fun? I got to spend the day with mine outdoors in sunny LA. She was nice enough to fly down from Salt Lake last night to spend the day with me. (One of the advantages to flying for free.)

That's a great pic Captain. And its a HUGE advantage for you to have a free flight for your daughter (and the rest of your family I would think). Want to adopt me? It would be great savings for me in the coming months.

Morning everyone!
Had a great day yesterday. Made it to a Nats game, it was crazy crowded being the first weekend homer and the beautiful weather. Lady woke me up at 2:30 calling me to let her in since she lost her keys. She cabbed it to the restaurant so I have no idea how this happened. Pathetic thing is, the only duplicate we have is a car key, ah well.
Anyway, grabbed this shot with the Nex at the ball park. Have a great Sunday everyone.

Anybody here live in the Central U.S? Some pretty bad storms went through Oklahoma and other states yesterday. The Weather Channel is forecasting more severe storms for today. I hope anybody, including here, who lives in that area, stay safe and watch out for those severe storms.

My folks live in southwest Indiana. I've yet to call them yet but they know how to deal with these types of storms. They had a close call on the tornadoes a few weeks ago.

I also have family who live in St. Louis. Not quite in the middle of the storms, but close enough for concern, and for me to call and see if they are okay.
