@iopflygirl @wiredforflight @jetcitystar @EAA I don't know how well this will work outside the US: I'm raising funds for Remembering Glen at OSH. Can you help? paypal.com/pools/c/8JJlku….

I'll bet Karlene can even fly airliners too. Oh wait... twitter.com/KarlenePetitt/…
My friends…I want to give you a glimpse of Borodyanka—the situation here & other towns near Kyiv! This city was heavily destroyed by Russian troops. Water & services are slowly coming back so @WCKitchen is distributing 30lb food bags in addition to hot meals! #ChefsForUkraine 🇺�tR

Dear @Disney May I suggest you close Florida parks for a few weeks (paying employees, of course). Let Mr. DeSantis and Florpublicans feel the wrath of lost taxes & business and all the tourist support services (restaurants, hotels, transportation, etc) that would be impacted.

I think people are just tired of paying for so much streaming everything. Just ask Netflix how hard streaming is these days. twitter.com/cnnbrk/status/…

Really getting into some old out of print Ernest K. Gann aviation books. Started "Blaze of Noon" & just ordered "In the Company of Eagles" "Aviator" and "Gentlemen of Adventure." All are either early airmail, barnstorming or WW1 themes. Bought them here: is.gd/eiswZ4

Working my airport volunteer information booth gig today. Seeing every arrival show up with passengers not wearing masks makes me wonder how big the next surge will be.
She's not wrong here.

Expecting very rare (if not unprecedented) spring snow storm* coming off the Gulf of Alaska into Oregon tonight. PDX metro 3" to 6", Cascade passes 3'+. *Checks calendar, yup, April, not January. Of course, we could just get some sprinkles too, because it's Oregon.
As a photographer, I have a thing for spiral staircases. Just ordered a print of this one, shot in a chateau in Azay-le-Rideau, in France's Loire Valley.
Looking good, Derek! What are you trying to keep out with that fencing? Rogue gangs of Bambis? The elusive Midwestern Black Bear? Your neighbors? Sasquatch? twitter.com/DWThomas2786/s…
Why are we supporting @WCKitchen? #WCK believes that food is a universal human right. Their #ChefsForUkraine campaign is doing incredible work to fulfill this mission, and since February 24, over 5 million meals have already been served to refugees across 6 countries. (1/2)

This site has real potential. They had me when they included the airport at Hamburg, Germany's Minatur Wunderland. twitter.com/AvGeek_Travel/…
Can anyone tell me the official hashtag of Sun N Fun this year? I know their Twitter account is @SunnFunFlyIn but cannot for the life of me find the right hashtag.
No doubt will continue to scoop up shares of TWTR so he can have the largest social media network on Mars. Trolls: "Too hot here" "scenery not what was advertised #fail" "long trip, no food court upon landing. One star." twitter.com/KWWL/status/15…

Doing my airport volunteer gig today. Another busy day at Eugene Airport.
Yeah, but the Former Guy would have brought them paper towels! twitter.com/POTUS/status/1…
I am old school re: Cash. Always makes me feel better to have some green in my wallet. But I do not get it all in ones just to make the wallet look fatter and more impressive, although I have known people who did just that. twitter.com/NZAircraftFan/…
I agree 1,000% with Patty. Trying hard to avoid politics, so will take her advice and just do puppies until further notice. twitter.com/pattyaerobatic…
Apologies in advance for sending you over to Facebook, but TURN THE SOUND UP and tell Monday to shove it: fb.watch/bTR5ShAueb/

Working a volunteer shift at the Eugene Airport at the info desk. I am amazed every time I come out here at the number of people who pick up their rollaboard bags and carry them. I guess they don’t understand the concept of wheels.
Yes, in fact, there does seem to have an aviation angle to everything, even my daily comics.
This is pretty cool: VW is bringing back the VW Bus, only this time it is electric and presumed to not be a rolling roadblock: is.gd/j2jRgC

One of our @WCKitchen partners heard a train was coming to Hrubieszów, Poland filled with Ukrainian refugees who had gone days without a hot meal. Working with the crisis center, we got meals on the train so they could eat before leaving! This is true WCK way! #ChefsForUkraine 🇺�lU

After doing some formation flying in the @XPlaneOfficial C-47, I decided to let the pax off at San Bernardino (KSBD). They have me parked at the commuter carrier gates. Will be departing for Fresno (KFAT) after fuel and catering are done, and new pax in back.
If you are interested in electric airplanes, I strongly encourage you to go listen to Ep. 693 of the @AirplaneGeeks podcast with guest George Bye of @ByeAerospaceInc. Really great info. This is far and away my fave podcast for aviation. airplanegeeks.com/?p=9175
I'd vote for him or her. Ducatis (especially the latest crop) are super cool. twitter.com/mlanger/status…
Val Demings is running to remove Marco Rubio from the U.S. Senate. This is from her website: "When she's not serving her constituents and spending time with her family, she rides her Harley-Davidson Road King Classic." I like Senators that ride Harleys or fly airplanes.
If you want a good look at the logistics problems Putin is having in #Ukraine, read this expert's tweet stream. Makes a lot of sense on so many levels: @PhillipsPOBrien
