Well when Flew an XC route. A very Short Flight by the way. It was only oh about 44 Miles or so. I had two acitatted Guys with Automatic Weapons show up to where I had Landed. They were quite upset claiming that I had Violated this and that. Then when I told them where I had launched from. The said that I was lying. Funny but I have had this sort of response a number of times. People see how far in their Eyes, Far. Well they just can not wrap their brains around the fact that a person is able to fly distance using only the Sun as a Power source.

Anyways Now I know where I shall not Sink out again any time soon.

Ok Everyone:

I am really going to apply Myself to getting back into the Air anyway that I am able. Currently being able to reenter the Aviation Arena. You Guys must have read My Posts regarding How Darn right Badly that I Yearn to Fly again. I assume that I will only be doing short little Bunny Hops at the Beach, or off an inland training Hill. But oh Boy what an experience that will be!

So this Six Foot Three and a Half Inch Tall 195 Pound former: "BIG GUY IN THE SKY" who should be known after I have had My first Flight in Twelve and a Half Years. I should not be called the: BIG GUY IN THE SKY, No nowe I should be called: {THE PHOENIX GUY IN THE SKY}. The way I see it, I will have earned the Title.

What do You Guys think? Will I have earned My Predator Wings?

WEll it is not looking good for Me to Fly a Condor up here in the SF Bay Area. So I should head down and Fly Franks Condor at Torrey Pines.

Chris,
The Wind Sports school's Condor might be flown before flying Frank's Condor, my guess, if I remember correctly the deal. Not 100% positive.

I think your memory is still good Joe.

So Frank what were You saying? When I fly a 330 Condor, Will I be taking John with Me up into The Air? In order for John to give Me His {Guidance} I will need to take John up with Mee as a tandem Passenger.

Not tandem, Chris. Bunny slope and bunny conditions. As helpful, comments are heard from the instructor who is on the ground. True self-launch independent glides can be anticipated.

Frank narrates alternating flights by Bob and Joe in the video. Both pilots were body weighted about what you report for yourself recently. What is not shown much is the carry-back!

2016 Frank flying his big Condor; he weighed more than your current weight.

So do You Guys have any idea how good it feels to Me, just to be able here to sit at <u Desk typing a response on This Site? Yes to Type. Type Trash. I love talking Trash, believe that should Type Trash also. Well some weekend, possibly next weekend I will be doing some Dune Gooning. John told Me that with any slope, and any Wind at all, one can Walk a Condor into the Air. You Guys must not have had any Wind.

Does anyone know of a situation where Two Pilots had a Mid-Air, while Flying XC?
