And Now for Something Completely Different

A small woods fire this morning.


The wind is blowing here, a bit. Not like it was yesterday, but it's strong enough that Unicom was pretty quiet for a sunny weekend day. The wind wasn't far off the centerline and, since there is a full-length grass runway next to the paved one, no worries.

It's gusting a bit, now, so I'm glad I'm on the ground.

But I needed that flight today.

Glad you're OK. Had someone catch a quick "mayday, mayday, mayday, lost our engine" followed by an ELT. Not enought info to determine where...guess CAP will be out trying to triangulate the ELT. Below radar and radio is a sucky place to be in an emergency...didn't even get a call sign...it sucks that someone might be out there while the sheriffs in east Texas, southeast Oklahona and southwest Arkansas search around.
