Thread: KLOU to SDF in I-NISA

    Default KLOU to SDF in I-NISA

    A short hop from KLOU to SDF in I-NISIA a Savoia Marchetti S73. By pigeon we're talking about 5 miles, maybe. But this little hop with an old friend probably traveled 50 miles or so.

    A good short short hop Michael. I like the Savoia Marchetti S73 it looks a lot like an Avia 57.

    Thanks folks!! Frankly as a 60's GA and chopper guy I really never flew with 99 percent of all the "smart technology" that everyone now takes for granted.

    I can't tell you how shocked I was flying an R-4 in the right, co pilot's seat, (you probably recall these planes as DC3s) I stomped on the rudder pedal and almost took the aircraft down to stall speed!!!! They called the rudder the "Barn Door" and it was so huge it'd kill a huge amount of airspeed almost instantly!!!

    TBTG the PIC expected this to happen as he knew I wasn't familiar with that plane!!!! He instantly dropped the yoke and called for a Go Around so we could build up enough speed to stay aloft!!

    This old "friend" has many of the same flight responses. I'm so thrilled to learn to fly it in a sim, where I probably won't die if I mess up!!!!

    Michael

    Great to learn from a RW pilot!
    On the other hand by the way, 'KLOU to SDF,' SDF in French means 'sans domicile fixe' ('homeless, I think in French)

    The more proper way to say it is KSDF. As in Standford Field. And both are very close to my home.

    Thanks to al who looked at this series!!
