[Video] Sells, AZ E78 airport

I Flew to Sells, AZ today. I love finding and going to new airports. This one is a smaller airport with tight runway with cracks in the pavement lined with bushes and trees. I had never landed with trees so close to the runway it was a neat new experience.
This is looking down runway 22 


My trusty 152 at the runway 4 end.


The house that had a helicopter take off from it and what looked like a fuel truck was there.
What was the FBO.
E78 from the air.
Saw this after I landed at Chandler (CHD).  very nice.

Be very very glad that your flat was the front tire. I had the right wheel go flat taxiing out to 12 at Marana one day. The tire went from up to completely flat, just like that! I couldn't even steer the airplane. It swerved right and stopped. Had it been on landing or take off, the results could have been catastrophic!

As for changing the tire, it is not as easy as jacking up the car and putting on the spare. That's for sure. You have to chain down the tail, if it's the nose wheel, or drag a very heavy jack under the wing, if it's one of the main gear. All the fairings have to come off. Lots of fun. Ha!

This is the Greenbook. I made it a few months ago for my brother. It's all the really good talks that I found on my mission and most the talks that are sited in Preach My Gospel. I think it's way cool. You can order one for your self from the link above. I don't make any profit.

I got My Tailwheel endorsement!

Some of you might be asking your self what a tailwheel endorsement is. Well as a private pilot I can fly but not all types of airplane and to fly different kinds of plane I need to get training in that kind of plane then get sign off by an instructor or what called an endorsement. The last 2 weeks or so i've be flying the little red taildragger shown about. It's really fun to fly very touchy but can be so smooth. I got the sign off on Wednesday day and then Nick and I went up yesterday we had a little bumpily landings but it was fun and it's cheap to rent. Jessica won't go up with me though because it is an old plane, from 1942, and not all metal. The wings and most of the fuselage are steel tubing covered with vinyl. I'm bummed because it's safe but that's ok I'll just find a taildragger out of metal and take her up.
