OK Now the names are getting in my brain.

Dwight Junkin is the owner of the factory in Florida, right?
Mr. Uptigrove is the designer.
Are they both engineers or just Mr. Uptigrove?

Rob (rhrocker),
Just a side note while we're here on the same thread. I just sent out the temp strips to you , Falk, and Dave Junkins. Sorry it took so long. It's been so hot that I was a little worried the inside of a mail truck might discolor them a little.
Gary :o

Gary, your state is just to darned hot! Heck even Texas isn't that bad (yet). Normally it runs about 102 - 106 inside my shop (no AC), but so far this year I've had only 2 100+ days. Fall's almost here to!
Also, many thanks on the strips. I better get busy and send you some $$$. I haven't been in any hurry for them, so no problem, no worries. Wink
Ok Bryan, here's your thread back. Sorry man.

Whimps. It is 114 today in the Phoenix area. With windchill it is 125!!!!

I've been out working in my hangar all day on the plane.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere. Time for a cold one.

Jeez! That's hot. I've been in Phoenix, in a Casino parking lot, when it was showing 114 on the thermometer. They say that because there is so little humidity, it's not really bad. HORSE-
HOCKY!!! Hot is hot, don't care what the humidity is.
You're right rv7guy, I'm a whimp, and couldn't handle your temps for very long. I think I'll stay here in good ol Texas.

Was in Florida this week cleaning out my dad's hangar. It was in the 90s but the humidity made it feel worse than Texas in the 100s. Luckily when I went to the factory yesterday it was raining and that made things nice and cool. Had a great visit with Dwight. The main shop is almost as full with Mosquitos as last years factory flyin. I gues I'll be stepping up to the plate to take over coordination for the flyin from my dad. Dwight and I have some ideas about how to make it an even better event this year. I hope you all start getting ready. We had 19 Mosquitos last year up from 6 the year before so we gotta get more this year. See you all there "Air Boss" Out!

Had a flight the other night at 10 pm. It was still 108. Glad the patient didn't weigh 300 lbs.

The "dry heat" mantra is very true. I'd rather deal with 110 and 10-20% humidity than 80 and 80. We do have a couple of weeks of 110+ and 60 percent. That is very friendly.

The hottest I've ever flown the Astar was 120. Thank goodness for excellent air conditioning and 850 shp. This is main reason I chose the Turbine Mosquito. Lots of extra power.
