    The biggest crimes against humanity were legal. Made legal by….politicians. Thought up by…experts…Carried out by..citizens who believed the rationale put forth by said politicians and experts, and acted without questioning.

    Government would never lie to you. They are not at all predatory and are here to help you. Stop resisting.

    We’re good Stan. CSS’s 145.555 conforms to the band plan. The club’s former frequency was a repeater frequency that was in use way out by San Fernando Valley. When the repeater moved to chino or corona, our site was within range of the repeater’s output, so all we heard was ham radio blab at high output. The club needed a new freq and selected a simplex channel from the band plan.

    I thought it would be cool to get with the TASMA people to designate a narrow width to free flight, but that mission is yet unaccomplished and looking for a commanding officer to forward it.

    PG pilot, 3d flight off instruction, flying west along the eucalyptus, encounters a touch of sink then descends into the base leg of the hg approach. HG pilot, also brand new, up to the brim with anxiety, eyes just left the slope indicator and turning base leg suddenly see this pg in front of him. He’s thinks he’s too low to make the field by going around either left or right.  He’s mistaken, of course, but he’s never considered this situation and now, thrust into this, he’s overwhelmed. The shade structure judges all offer up opinion, some yell commands but the sounds blend in the the helmets wind noise.

    Mid air? Close call? Stall, dive, fatality? Double fatal tangle dive? No way to tell. By placing both in the same path for sure pushes the probability of it being a here and now and us, instead of over there, then, and them.

    If I can para-phrase Patton, Let that other dumb son of a bitch die doing what he loves. I and mine want to make it home for dinner.

    THe flights to AJX were probably from Pine Mtn. aka Reyes Peak NE of SBarbara. Flights much past the 5 are rare, in that the days are short and cloudbase is usually low when the conditions set up~ Post frontal and cold.  Nice track Logan.
