Where’s the wick? Oh, there it is! That puny little black speck!
I have to give my mother ALL of the credit for this amazing invention. All I did was name it!
Ok, enough of our get-rich invention – now onto my flight yesterday! The weather was perfect so I took a couple hours of vacation and decided to work on my aerobatics. I was a little nervous as I hadn’t done any aerobatic maneuvers in quite a few months, and I feared serious heckling from the St. Catharines tower.
I had to wait for another plane to be moved, so my plane could be pulled out of the hangar. To kill some time, I chatted with the Flying Club cat. When I started my pilot lessons, he was just a little kitten:
Since I hadn’t done aerobatics in awhile, I figured I would get nauseous after just a few loops and rolls. I was shocked that I didn’t feel sick at all. I made sure I flew fairly straight and level for one to three minutes between each maneuver, which seemed to do the trick.
I always find it amusing how wonky my horizon indicator goes, from the unusual attitudes and G forces of the aerobatics:
It typically stays like that until I’m taxiing the plane back to the hangar. I also took a shot of how many G’s I did:
The plane’s structural limit is positive six G’s, so I was quite safe at less than five.
It was a great flight and I was so happy that I didn’t have any issues getting back into the swing of things.
When I got home, I ran to tell Pinky and Boo about my flight. I asked if I could take their picture. Boo agreed but Pinky just said “Hmph”
I was just about to ask Pinky to please look up at the camera, when I caught Boo giving her an unimpressive glance:
As you can see, it did the trick!
Today’s symptoms: I was really drained physically and emotionally today. This lead to a pretty bad headache starting early in the afternoon. I’ve also had many sharp body aches, mostly in my arms and hands.
