All:

Here's a well done and entertaining photoessay about a fellow pilot's first ride in a Breezy:

Cool. Breezy - aptly named.

I read an article long ago by a guy who interviewed a Breezy owner...said he never took it above 500 AGL because the higher it got the scareder he got. That's the owner talking...;-)

Sphincter-clenching adventure. Of course I was utterly terrified when I did a para-sail trip in Maui a couple of years ago, too!

Best,
Andy

Joe,

Great essay on a fun airplane.

Got my Breezy ride in about 1971. Pilot flew through a rain shower. That just plain hurt.

Warmest regards,
Rick

Rick,

<< Pilot flew through a rain shower. That just plain hurt.>>

Count your blessings. It could have been hail.

Guy must have been a closet helo pilot. We all get nosebleeds if we go about 1000' AGL. <G>

Do you happen to have a copy of that poem some Army helo pilot wrote, that's a parody of High Flight?

Something about flinging his eager craft over the General's fence, and it ends with "Put out my hand and touched...a tree".
