Yeow! The Alvord is so middle of nowhere that pilots land on the highway and pull up to the gas pump at the Fields shake shack/gas station to refuel. Hope the pilot doesn't have too much trouble getting his plane out of there. Maybe they can load it in a trailer and get it home. I hear the NAE crew is pretty experienced at cutting the wings off if necessary.



Oh, and just to pick a nit - it's Spanaway with a p.

And that line of reasoning brings back my mom's teaching of pronunciation -- she'd say things like "Remember that the "p" in pnuemonia is silent, as in swimming."

Oh, Mom, I'll remember the important stuff forever. . . cheers cheers

Good to see some updates. The Facebook and Twitter posts have been a little ambiguous!

It sounds like one of those; anything that can go wrong will go wrong situations. Stay safe out there gang!

Not everything.  Jim is very complimentary to Ed's culinary hospitality.  I wonder, though -- was it really a 20-gallon barrel of chili last night? huh cheers

After some difficulties on previous runs with steering, the North American Eagle has completed it's first full shakedown (not full speed) run, reaching over 360mph. With that out of the way, it's now time to turn our heads towards topping two different records!

Do we know which two records they might be?

And who are the current record holders?

HUH? An "unofficial record" is NO RECORD at all!

...

The unofficial women's speed record and the unofficial single engine record.

Is that the unofficial mile or the unofficial kilometre?

Do you have to run two ways to set an unofficial record?

How can you be sure of the current unofficial record you have to beat?

I'm sure that horse moved: keep on flogging ...
