    ROFL,

    Thanks.
    About that waterplane, I have no parking space at home. The pond is too small.
    The first time I saw a floatplane land on a normal runway, I could not believe my eyes. I didn't know then, it has also got wheels on it.
    Primrose, actually I mistook the term cross-wind with cross-cable and ran into this bear...
    Animals are a big danger however.
    The migratory birds are all over the place now. You really need to watch on take-off and landing. Yesterday, I almost had an eagle in the props. It scared the *&^%& out off me.

    Well,
    I almost got a hawk in my props 2 days ago.
    Pretty scary experience.
    It's the migratory season here. The geese are everywhere and they don't file flightplans...
