Default Hello Everyone

I'm a motor head. As a child, I collected engines. I was not into toys. My office has my first motorcycle. I may be a hoarder also? I currently own 13 airplanes, 18 motorcycles, 10 cars, 15 outboards and on and on. I'm nuts but I bet that happens a lot here!! I have 5 hangers so this supports my hoarding!!

I'm the CFO and one of the owners of a battery mfg company. We build everything in the USA and sell into 150 + countries so I'm pretty busy.

Look forward to hanging with all you!!

Here is one of my babies ...................

A common problem with a lot of aircraft, and has caused its share of accidents. Nice looking 'craft! Take care, and have a safe day! Welcome to the Stak!

Welcome to the stak, if you have any lowly Cessna's that need some exercise I could probably pry myself away from my busy schedule and give them some time

Trainer jets are bad. Big prop jobs jump into the air compared to them. My banker flies P-51's for Chino Planes of Fame. They are like a dragster compared to a trainer jet.

Persuant to my penultimate, here's a funny.

Control Tower - Mayday!

“Mayday, Mayday!”
An air traffic control tower suddenly lost communication with a small twin engine aircraft.

A moment later the tower landline rang and was answered by one of the employees.
The passenger riding with the pilot who lost communications was on a cell phone.

He yelled, "Mayday, mayday! The pilot had an instant and fatal heart attack.
I grabbed his cell phone out of his pocket and he had told me before we took off he had the tower on his speed dial memory. I am flying upside down at 18,000 feet and traveling at 180 mph. Mayday, mayday!"

The employee in the tower immediately put him on speaker phone.
"Calm down, we acknowledge you and we'll guide you down after a few questions. The first thing is not to panic. Remain calm!"

He began his series of questions:
Tower: "How do you know you are traveling at 18,000 feet??"
Aircraft: "I can see that it reads 18,000 feet on the altimeter dial in front of me."
Tower: "Okay, that’s good, remain calm. How do you know you're traveling at 180 mph?"
Aircraft: "I can see that it reads 180 mph on the airspeed dial in front of me."
Tower: "Okay, this is great so far, but it’s heavily overcast. So how do you know you're flying upside down?"
Aircraft: “The shi* in my pants is running out of my shirt collar."
