Thursday I managed to add another plane to my list.
I finally managed to fly our DG 100G.
At first it seemed impossible to get my 1,93 m ( 6' 4'') into the cockpit, but after removing all pillows, borrowing a slimmer 'chute and a little trying I did six takeoffs and landings.  8) ;D ;D ;D 8) GREAT PLANE . . .
I'll most probably spend the next week flying D-1547 (and post a pic of the plane and my as soon as I've got it digital)

Since you guys brought this one back to the present, I'll need to add C550 to my list.  When you include the SNJ I forgot to add to my original list, it makes for about 42 different makes and models.  <whew>  Methinks I need a brew to cool off my head after counting that high!  Hehe

42 !?!  :o ::eek::

Where did you find all those fingers to count that high? ? ? ?   ::thinking::

In my book, everything past "3" falls under the general umbrella called "many" . . .  ::whistle::

already had "many" of   ::drinking:: ::drinking::  tonight  ;) ;D
