    This was a common stunt in the Cub. My dad and his buddy used to stop the engine and then hand start it in flight whenever they thought there might be women watching.

    I doubt if THAT guy is trying to get himself laid, no women nearby to impress, he looks more like he doesnt want to do a dead-stick beach landing.
    Good stuff tho, interesting stuff.

    Wait a minute; was that the PRE-LANDING check-list? or the PRE-FLIGHT check-list I was just looking at.

    Ilya and Oleg were arguing over details of Oleg's plane when Ilya reminded Oleg his plane made in many places and in fact his prop is not made in Russia.
    Oleg stops engine and tells Ilya: "I quit until you get out and read that sticker" Ilya sees how fast de plane is sinking and gets out to read:
    "See Oleg, it says right here in the back of prop blade, "MADE IN THE GLORIOUS NATION OF ESTONIA"
    You owe me a week off with pay! Now start de motor and let's go home before we both get killed and BoB SoW wont be completed on time.

    As Ilya and Oleg in de plane passes overhead, Ianboys looks up, shakes head with relief and says: Two weeks longer..sigh.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
