MID:
Sal?

SAL:  Yes Dear?

MID: I know we're due another glass of that Cabernet you've been feeding me, but before break time, can you give me a quick update on the planning situation?

SAL:  Of course, Dahling!  I am currently working some training flight plans, once we get that aerodynamic fix you want completed.  It's looking like two lunar trips of a few days, just to work out the Mars bugs regarding crew surface activities.  Then, you, Bade and I will be taking D on a Mars round trip...threedays maximum, and testing the maximum thrust controller.

MID:  You do realize that they're gonna look at us like we're nuts when we tell 'em we're going to be landing on Mars about 60 hours after we leave here!

SAL:  Have a glass of Merlot, Dahling...and don't worry about reactions!  It's really no different from some of our many trips together.   We've never attempted light speed travel with anyone, save ourselves.  Worry not.  Everyone will be impressed, comfy, and mighty satisfied!

MID:  I am sure darling, but....what about the aero fixes we talked about?

SAL:  In work.  We're flying out there tomorrow (follow me, Sweetie!), and will spend a couple days with Dr. Fruehnerling.  He's monitoring progress and is establishing flight test programs for us!

MID:  OK ,  sAL, , sounds good, like the wine.

Door closes, electronic sign on the door lights up:

PRIVATE!
MID AND SAL
ARE BUSY TONIGHT.
FLIGHT PLANNING ACTIVITIES.
KNOCK, AND
YOU MAY HURT ALOT!

Yessir.

And what a day to hitch a ride to EDW!

15,000 broken to overcast, 3000 scattered, 6000 scattered, 75 degrees, 70 miles visibility plus!
Just a little rocky with the 34 knot winds out of 120 degrees!  Not to bad on runway 150 for landing though!

We'll be here for at least another day before I can fly her.   Watching those folks in airframe doing these mods is amazing!!

:tsu: :nw: :tsu:

And we did in fact grease her.  What a flyin' machine!

Right down the centerline of runway 15, a good 70 degree crosswind at 25 KTS hitting us.  She behaved like she owas on a beach in mid-summer.  Smooth as glass!

Actually, D, that was just stick and rudder work...hands on stuff.  I never fly approaches via GPS or instruments unles it's IFR out.  Today wasn't IFR at all.  A nice, windy, VFR day at EDW!
It's nice weather for 150 tons empty weight!
