    Default Pacer Photo Leads Fox News Story

    Sad story, but they picked a pretty airplane for the lead photo:

    I have some extra vacation days that I need to use or loose and I was thinking about just heading South towards Texas and seeing how far I get. However, this crazy, nasty weather has me thinking twice about that plan.

    Sad to see that.

    Has anyone heard from Steve? These high winds could have also gone thru Graham.

    I was actually in Grand Prarie that night. Spring break and my son wanted to attend the Mavericks/Spurs basketball game. Got back yesterday afternoon and we are good. Will see if I can post a video I got from a friend in the panhandle.

    Steve,
    Glad everything is good with you.
    The doors on the big CAF hangar at McCampbell Porter, Ingleside did the same thing during hurricane Harvey, except they are about 20" tall and REAL heavy. I don't understand how they can fly to the roof of the hangar.

    Now that is just crazy, did the plane survive?

    blew 145 in Kong salmon 18 years ago flipped my new to me one flight only Tripacer on her back... I know that pain...

    My CFI said he felt guilty for not letting me takeoff or land the day before. Of course it took a few years to put her back together.

    Didn't hurt that one but pushed the doors in on another 182, damaging the cowling and prop and then the ailerons when it was pushed back in the hanger.
