    Final out on N928JP

    It's trespassing whether they "secured" the scene or not. Actually, in this case under Idaho law, it's burglary. The NTSB doesn't have the resources to go surround the entire perimeter from interlopers. That's usually done by the local constabulary. On minor accidents like this, you're...

    Does AvGas 100LL hurt paint?

    What have I done? Crazy old woman musings

    HIMS process hell

    Which torque wrench?

    The prop on my plane wanted to have the retainer nut torqued to 400 ft-lbs. The tightening device is a 1" square steel bar that fits through the slots in the nut. I hung Margy at 3' out on the bar to provide the right amount of torque.
