As they say, any landing you can walk away from was a good landing. If the aircraft is still flyable, it was a great landing.

Take-offs are always optional. Landings are always mandatory!

Some organizations brag that "We have a 100% perfect record with our aircraft... every aircraft that went up has come back down."

The only thing hard about flying is the ground.

When one engine went out, the guy next to me asked "How far can we go on one engine?" I said "All the way to the scene of the crash and we'll will beat the first responders there by 30 minutes."

PS I love flying (and living to joke about it)!

To every man is given the key to the gates of heaven; the same key opens the gates of hell.

"All the way to the scene of the crash..."

Now that's some funny stuff.

Remember that it is the propeller on a single engine plane that keeps the pilot cool. Let it stop, and watch the pilot sweat!

I will be watching the sky tonight! However, I'm bothered to see it suddenly clouding up outside. I hope that these pass before tonight.

Mtn Girl, I'm on the east side of Boulder Bay and had the same experience. I finally just turned the breaker off because the power going on and off so often isn't good for computers and the fridge and such. It came back on at 4am here.

I don't know the cause and was hoping to find it here on SoCalMountains.

Thanks for chiming in TruBluDad! Big Bear is a mess also. I think it is a solid line from the Big Bear Village to Highland.
