    Aircraft Grade Spruce "Market Survey"

    I sent a PM to one member and then realized that several of those who expressed interest could benefit. I have a friend who has confirmed that he can be bribed to deliver anywhere between the Los Angeles Area and Austin, TX. The catch is that you would have to wait for his next trip that is...

    About 150-200 feet from the perimeter fence. There's some video that shows him tangling with the power-line, and it appears that he was already pretty slow when he hit it. A very small amount of additional altitude would have gotten him over the line and over the fence.

    The audio is on You-Tube. He made his first call at six miles straight in, and the engine out was about half-way to the airport from there, I'd guess 2.5 to 3.5 miles out. The audio is also very clear, so you may be able to recognize/rule out who the pilot was, if you haven't already got that...
