    I grew up with my grandfather (1876-1959) from 6 years old to 15 years old , on the farm. If you got hurt he would say " if blood not squirting and no bones sticking out of skin, you will be OK, Get back to work ".
    He was born the day General Custer was killed and had 2 uncles that fought against General Custer.

    Someone posted on the biplane forum pictures of his just finished Skybolt. The owner/ builder had decided to not keep his plane but pushed through to finish it. Moved from the area where it is hangared; not same state. I’m Not sure if he is a pilot. He contracted someone to fly off the 40 hours. On the first flight, today, the pilot on takeoff lost his headset, open cockpit. He chased the headset which means he let go of the controls. From fifteen feet it dove into the ground, pancaking the gear and folding the prop. Pilot ok, plane a project. It was probably one of the best built ones in recent times.

    I used to teach EMS providers and other medical providers that the general rule in trauma and critical care was “Air goes in and out, blood goes round and round, the chest goes up and down. Any variation on one or more of these is a bad thing.”

    There is more to the brain than the physical realm.

    It is indeed a better landing if you can use the airplane again!

    I actually sent this to a fellow that was teaching himself to fly. He has flown a few times without a ticket (he does have a student permit) and after replacing/repairing the gear a few times he was feeling pretty confident until he went up into some wind that scared the life out of him. Now he's gotten a bit of respect for the airplane and says he's wanting to learn to fly and take lessons. He is a hard headed & brazen kinda big mouthed fella. After reading the add I thought the two of them might hit it off pretty good. :D
