Default Bahamas arrival video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bl0Sc5r5uRA
Here is a video I shot this week of our group arriving at New Bight airport.
It is a free hand so excuse the unstable picture at times. The Twin Comanche has been coming with us for the last 3 years, so legally he is adopted.
I was first to arrive, that's why you will not see my too-perfect landing .
It is not canard building related, but may encourage some people to finish faster?
Will work on the photo album later.

I think that's a gross understatement, the finish faster part

Some day I'll get the chance to leave this Colorado snow for a few days... Thanks for posting the vid

That SR-22 looked real sluggish on climbout. $400,000 just doesn't quite buy you the performance ofa Cozy IV.

Great seeing those 3 canards taxiing loosely together.
Thanks Buly!
Wish we'd been able to see your plane in action!

That SR22 had only 2 people aboard, and half fuel. The passenger was a tiny oriental girl. I have friends with SR's and are slugs. My friend flew with his son and luggage one day, but could take only half fuel. Their performance numbers for cruising, are advertised for 2700 RPM.
Cozy is a great plane. We took from New Bight, with the twin Comanche ahead of me. He had 2 people aboard, I had 2 people and 2 K9 plus 100 lbs luggage and 25 gals fuel. Blew by him at twice the rate of climb and higher ground sped (we compared on the radio). Just get it finished ASAP

Whats the saying?... "Now THATS WHAT I'M TALKIN' ABOUT!"
Just as I figured.
The only thing I got wrong was you can buy them used, for 225 grand. But whyyyyy when you can fly a Cozy?
Thanks for the report Buly.
Hope this is inspiring to all.
