When I started this forum , I was sort of "flying by the seat of my pants",...
hopefully we will get it more organized, so it runs better, almost everything I do starts that way, as a experiment...flying by the seat of my pants,..
 This includes, way back,...when I really did learn how to fly a airplane!....
 I had been helping a freind restore a old piper cub, it was very old, antique, it had the cloth skin,   apparently based on what he said, it was one of the earliest models used by the army, for training,...I don't remember if he said wrld war1 or 2,...but anyway, once it was ready to test fly, he asked me to go with him,.. he sat up front and me in the back,...there were no doors on it yet,.. so anyway we took off , he did some manuevers, and the asked me to take the "stick", and start flying,  so that he could pay attention to the movements of the airloines,dlaps, cables etc.....He explained some to me about maintaining the engine RPMs (speed), or trying to, working the rudder,. in a short whle I was doing figure 8 s, and able to maintain about the same speed, ....then he showed me to slow down, until we stalled, ...
(the plane starts falling),....after about an hour we went down and landed...
he cheked some stuff out, mechanicly, and then told me to get in the front seat,...I was a little "scared" to say the least, but both the front and back seat have the same controls, just in the back there were no guages, to read,...in the back seat I had to look over his shoulder, to see the guages,...now I was in front, he had me zig zag down the run way, useng  the brakes, because the rudder dose not do much at slow speeds, then we turned around, and he told me to "open it up", get going as fast as I could,
once we were up to speed, he told me to start going up,pull back the stick, gradually until the plane started lifting off the ground, as it starts to climb, the motor starts to work harder, one can hear that, and see it on the rpms,..well I was flying...once up high enough, more figure 8s, the he told me to go down, close,to ground level and maintain my speed, but just maybe 4 or 5 feet above the ground, or in our case it was actually a wide river, the we did the same but over the runway, I pretty much had the feel of things by now, so  on my next approach he told me, this time, start reduceing the engine speed til it (the plane,not the motor) stalls,..try to get close, 2 or 3 feet above the ground before yu stall.... and I made my first landing,a little bouncey, but ok....when we stopped I started to get out, he said no, stay there, he got out, then told me to go by my self.....but not to go to far away, as there was not that much fuel left,....so thats how I learned to fly by the seat of my pants...

Well, all though I am not a big church goer,...When ever I was flying I really felt closer to God,...I guess thats why I like it so much,...so I mentioned that to my freind, that taught me, it turned out he also is /was, I don't know if he still is alive, except in my memorie he is,..and I dont beleve he is dead, never will be,..
I do believe this very strongly,...and it is in the bible,that death has no power over those that are in Christ and with God,..eventually I will be posting more on that, in y new forum ad on my website (I hope,one day), but anyway, when I mentioned that, I felt closer to God, when up in airplane, he asked me if I believe in God, I said I did, BUT..did not realy understand much about Him, and often worried, as I believed, I was lost and condemed to eternity in hell,....eventually...so I was in a rather hopeless state of mind, in those days,.. sooo, he invited me to his church,....It is a long story, and always brings tears to my eyes,....But I can never forget the day I got Baptised, and not with water, but a FIRE,...!...A holy fire, that began and still burns, now some Christians, claim I am a liar, because I still smoke,...but it did lead to me quitting the drinking and a lot of other things,...Sometimes I think the smokeing, is sort of like the smoke that keeps riseing as a reminder to us all, that Isaiah, talks about,...this may or not make sense, ..But after all said and done, it is for sure,the day will come that this body passes away,along with this world,..God willing I will have a new body, and even the smokeing will end,
and I will be above, watching the smoke riseing,up from below, as a reminder of where, God brought me up and out of,....Well so much on religion,...
I still also believe every one is entitled to belive what they want, and interpret the Bble anyway they want, what others believe, dose not change what is the truth for me,...
