My Final Flight In The Super Decathlon

1) All of these photos are from my Super Decathlon group flight. We had 6 people join.

2) Flight was on expert from about 2200Z-2300Z 2019-06-12T22:00:00Z2019-06-12T23:00:00Z Flight was from KAJO to KAVX. We did not do a flight plan because there were some mountains that would be cool to fly over. Plane was the Super Decathlon.

3) Photos


Every one is parked here at KAJO.

I am taking off while all the other aircrafts are holding short. I did not drift off the runway when taking off lol. The Super Decathlon is hard to fly.

I am the plane farthest to the left. This is a view of everyone who attended.

Here is a shot with 3 of the 6 people who attended.

Flying over the hills by KAJO

Over the pacific.

Landing the plane. I didn’t bounce or fall off the runway surprisingly in this aircraft. @Trio almost clipped my wing lol.

Landed safely at KAVX.

Yea. I’m super sad to see that plane go. I flew it all the time. At least 50 hours on it! Hopefully the X Cub is worth it

Rip Super Decathlon!

Just saying, go on solo with the Super D and set wind gusts and velocity to maximum and turbulence to extreme. It’s so funny. Then try taking off and landing.

I’ll try right now

I love Super Decathlon, but there is no cockpit camera, I mean interior, so, I’m looking forward to “XCub” update, to try this group flights!
Even so, quite amazing this recompilation! Cheers…!

Why is it hard to fly? It looks like a Cessna plane but with taildragger and can do tricks so it should be pretty easy.

Disclaimer: I didn’t have Super Decathlon on infinite flight and have no experience flying it.
