    awesome !!!
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    Man that looks like so much fun! I'm tempted to go jump in the Schweizer S-32 in Flight Simulator right now.

    Glad to see you're still at it over there Dennis

    Really cool video, you where really lucky, we had less luck at ETNG/GKE, with almost no thermal lift...
    Just make sure LBA does not see the video ;-)
