Might not be the most extreme thing on the taco, but a proud moment for me. Moments after my first solo flight a couple of months ago...

WTG Limestone! This thread isn't all about the "extreme" per se, but about our love for flight in all it's forms.

And at the time, your solo sure as hell feels extreme, at least it did for me.

I won't ever forget mine, we were doing touch and goes one day and my boss/instructor tells me to taxi off and as we pull up on the ramp, he grabs his coffee and huffs "You know what, I'm tired of sitting here with you today!" gets out, and slams the door.

I just sat there for about 3 minutes going wtf, until he opened the door again and told me to go fly haha.

Friend of mine last week in Moab. Rather gruesome to watch but he's out of the hospital and will be fully okay. Still tough to watch.


edit- Yes, Potash Road/Wallstreet. I believe at the end he is sliding down "Nervous in Suburbia".

A cross-post from the Building thread for Squshy and RC fans...

My old homie, Alan Cocconi, kind of started the whole drone thang way back
when.  He would go park right at the Edwards AFB fence and drive the MP's
wild flying his drones around the base.  He never got caught. Then he and
David Sivertsen created the guts of the Tesla.  Now Alan is pushing the
boundaries of flight with his near supersonic RC sailplanes. I'll post a
vid in a bit. BTW, these 'little' sailplanes cost 5 figures!

Today, people on two continents mourn the death of 92-year-old William Overstreet Jr. He was a resident of Roanoke, Virginia, a retired accountant, and like many men from his generation, a veteran of World War II. And in the spring of 1944, Overstreet did something people in France and the U.S. still talk about.
