    Only at about 120 meters today, with a good wind at my back, I hit 60mph (27m/s) today flying!

    Thanks. Yeah, I wasn't intending to break the sound barrier. I was just coming home and noticed my speed.

    I can only max. out at 34 MPH in GPS mode on a windless day! :oops:

    Was allowed on a golf course on the bay here in MD that is closed for the season. It was gusting 35-40 yesterday and I decided to go out anyway. Flying down a fairway with the wind gust I hit 58! I tired several time to break that 60 mark but never got it.

    Does 72 MPH count? Guess not. It was in the back seat in my van on the freeway. :cool:

    It was just Outside Ocean City on the bay side (611). I don't want to use the name since the owner was doing me a favor and I don't want to advertise that its cool for people to fly there because it's usually not.

    A little side note - General Yeager signed my logbook and flew right wing with me when I was PIC in a B17 many years back. That pic brought back some nice memories. Andy "Bud" Anderson flew left wing. And we flew down the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Really fun!

    I loathe the celebrity cult destroying the USA and I wouldn't cross the street to say hi to any of my favorite movie stars...BUT I'd run across a California freeway to shake the general's hand.
