Old bush pilot trick for mosquitos in the cockpit.  Keep a peice of 1/2" hose with you.  stick one end out the window, the slipstream past it will creat a nice vacuum.  Use the other end to suck the buggers out!  ::rambo:: The roof vent on some cherokees works pretty good too.

Unfortunately, it's really hard to get the window open on a pressurized aircraft...   ::banghead::


That's a really cool idea though... I just shared it with my room mate as he's about to go into the Navajo with Warbelos and might actually have an opportunity to take advantage of that wisdom...

More War Memorials. I believe this is a WW1 artillery piece. It's in front of  Legion Hall near home.

IF YOU CAN'T SAY ANYTHING NICE, YOU'RE PROBABLY AT THE ICE CAPADES

Knowing you are somewhat of a connoisseur of hair couture......    ;)
