That's why I put "fly" in quotation marks. A plane like the Piper Warrior (which I owned for 7 years), given the right pitch, will drop in and out of a stall continuosly. The wings stall, the nose drops, the plane starts flying, the nose comes back up, the wings stall, repeat... >A stall is very little risk...until terra firma interferes with your >stall recovery plans. If only the media understood that. Oh well... At least I can dream. -- -- Larry Stone --- email@example.com http://www.wwa.com/~lstone/ Belmont, CA, USA My opinions, not United's.
