464. Excellent Flight except the Scary Landing. Kamloops North Ridge, Feb 2, 2024

It was weird day. Kamloops and practically whole BC was under heave fog. All air traffic was on hold.

The sun started to peak through around noon. The west half of runway was still totally fog covered when I started to prepare for flight. It cleared by 1:30 pm, the time when I took off.

It was very relaxing and enjoyable flight in crispy clear air, but with many clouds around. Warm, +6C on the ground and +9C at the top (5500’). Actually, it was too warm, because I had partially covered the engine radiator for cold flying. The engine temp reached max, so I had to pull back a bit to keep it from overheating. It was totally spring like flying.

The fun and relaxation was dashed just about 50 ft above ground when all hell broke loose. I felt like garbage bag in the wind. I had to give up in very scary, super turbulent and gusty conditions. I was glad to make it in one piece. I noticed the wind sock, while taxing “home”, was moving very erratically and at one moment it pointed even straight up. It was some experience. 10 min after that the wind was blowing like mad.

463. My Excellent First Flight of 2024, Kamloops Jan 21, 2023

I was rewarded by beautiful and relaxing winter flight after serious snow removal (by hand shovel) from my access path to runway. There was low ceiling cloud base all around except Kamloops center and airport area. I found enough space to have good winter fun.

462. I had to Shovel all this by Hand before my Flight, Kamloops Jan 21, 2024

It was serious exercise to clear all that snow from my hangar up to the taxiway. The taxiway was closed for me by big snow withdraw from the airport plow. Well many people pay for the gym membership and I have it free.

I discovered so many muscles. I didn’t know I have. See the actual flight below
