Apparently this thing delivers aircraft parts for Boeing. Or so I'm told anyway. It's ugly, but unique. It passed by me this morning so I snapped a pic for you guys.

SHADES OF SUPER GUPPY !!!! A while back, while working at the airport, I noticed a large contrail coming up from the the Southeast, and threw some binoculars on it. The thing looked really bloated, and I thought it was one of those new Airbuses that keep smacking littler planes around, but a search on Flightaware I.D.'d it as a Boeing 747 LCF (Large Cargo Freighter).

Apparently, they were (are?) operating out of Huntsville, and it's track would have brought it fairly close to us if it was headed for Washington State.

Flightaware is a lot of fun, if you're the type of nerd that likes to stare at stuff passing by overhead. It doesn't show V.F.R. or military traffic, but does tag commercial, corporate, and private aircraft that are flying I.F.R, giving their altitude, speed, destination and origin, along with the aircraft type. You can call up any airport or city by typing in the name in the box on the lower left and clicking "Activity"' . The radar screen lags by 5 minutes or so, so if a plane is directly overhead, it's target will be "back up the road" a bit on the screen.

AirNav is another good one we use a lot for getting airport information, and to check customer comments on our service:

"Smaking little planes around" while learning to fly a C-150 many years ago I was flipped inverted by a large jets vortex.
Stall recovery was part of the training, you would pull back the yoke until it stalled then recover. The instructor would teach recovery
with a hood on my head so you had to recover using the instruments. If you kicked it some rudder during the stall the thing would spin.
Fun times, the C-150 was a very forgiving airplane.
