Inflight Belt Mishap

 Took off this afternoon planning to fly over to the house but never made it! I had launched from Kolb Field in North Phoenixville and not long after crossing past the town my drive belt decided to end the flight and broke. This caused me to have to shut down the motor to avoid internal damage. As I do when I fly my Cherokee, I constantly look for alternate landing sites should the need arise and it did today. Below me, and only 1 mile from my house I could see the Longford Crossing Bark Park. Because there were high tension power lines between me and the dog park, I decided to take the safer route and land in the field adjacent to the factory across the street. Below is the video of that flight.

I do hope you enjoy it! Ya'll be particular!

Fox Two Fox Two

Morgantown Air Force once again defended the Amish Countryside by eliminating the "bad guys".  The previous week (5/12/12) I had taken a short flight and thought I had seen some airborne activity.  I couldn't stay up long because, believe it or not, as I was preparing for launch, I broke my front tooth whilst biting the sleeve of my glove to pull it on my hand.  I got airborne and the pain started to arrive so I kept that flight short.
This week however, (5/19/12), I'm good to go and went hunting.  The fun starts 3 or 4 minutes into the video.

As always, hope you enjoy it and be particular!
