I will be there, last year was my first time, work schedule had prevented me from going previously. No longer a problem since I “retired” nine days ago. Also, for what it’s worth I have been a member since it was PNAHF...1966 and my member number was 43, if my memory serves me correct.

There's definitely a lot more activity on the FB page but most are just quick status updates/pics w/o much else.  There are some accident reports but I don't recall seeing the ones at Paine on the FB group.

I heard about the 152 crash at Paine from my hangar neighbor.  A CFI and student were reported onboard and I was glad to hear that they were able to walk away.  The plane was on the flight line at Regal Air if I recall.

I've also noticed a lack of posting after stuff like this.
Is all the reporting action moved tp the FAT-PNW facebook site?

I believe a lot of it is because posters wonder if anyone is even remotely interested. That is certainly why I don't post as much news as I used to.
Examples? In events and destinations -
 Museum Flight  146 views - 1 comment (was looking for tickets). 
Abbotsford  144 views - 0 comments.
 Port Townsend  145 views - 1 comment, 
Versus Finals 111 views - 0 comments.

Kinda speaks for itself.

No long own the Cessna.  These sell for $214 through Sky Geek  Shipping would probably be $20 or pick up at KDLS The Dalles.

I know this is not the season for window screens but I found a set in my hanger that appear to be for a 172.  Made by Thermacon and attached to the inside of window with velcro.  I got them for my 182 years ago and then found a hanger so never used them.  It has the front, both front and back on both sides and rear window.  red on one side and reflective silver on the other side.  $20 plus $18 shipping or pick up at The Dalles (KDLS) or call 54one-three hundred-6269

I'll second hotrod's statement about not feeling right about posting incidents online.  I use them as educational media, but not certain I feel like I should be the one to start a thread about it?

I'll admit there's been a couple accidents near here recently.
One involved a friend and the other a fatality,
and I didn't feel right about posting about either of them at the time.

The C-152 that went down on December 3 was N714TD.  It was the 13th 152 built, formerly a factory demonstrator, and was the cover girl in the debut brochure ...

Chit-chat / Incidents at Paine

In the last week-ish there have been 3 incidents at Paine. On Friday 2 landing mishaps within an hour and A few days before a plane went down shortly after takeoff. Thankfully, no serious injuries in any of the incidents.

Not a word about these incidents appeared on PNWFF. Comeon, I rely on you guys to keep me informed about these things.

I never did like touch and goes.
