Flight with the Freight Dog (Quick Summary)

Just a quick update - the IFR Pilot and the Freight Dog managed to accomplish the IFR Pilot's goal #3 today: an aerial tour of San Francisco. Logged 1.2 hours in what the Freight Dog affectionately referred to as the "Chicken Hawk," a lovely Cessna 172RG Cutlass based at Oakland Flyers.

There's a bit of a story on why we ended up in that bird instead of the old fashioned straight leg 172. But, it was worth it, and there's pictures to prove it. Will provide a complete narrative when the rest of the sightseeing in San Francisco is over in a couple of days.

Peace.

"Chicken Hawk" is not a bad name for a 172RG, but I was referring to it as a "Super Chicken."

"Super Chicken" conjures all sorts of images for those of us old enough to remember the cartoon series by the same name. Especially since the motto of the main character, Super Chicken, was "You knew the job was dangerous when you took it."

If I were to wager a guess at why, I’d say that users don’t “browse” forms. The interaction style users engage in with forms is different, and requires its own study and design best practices. This is a very interesting post, and the comments are also fantastic to read. I’ll have poses to have a little re-think about my own contact form on our new website, as this some interesting questions!
