What a coincidence! I just got a "suspension refresh". Now my bike needs one.

I thought we just paused the game out of respect for you until you're healed and ready to play again!

I know where it's at, I'm just not riding all the way down there to get it! Might have to be one of those east siders.

Come on man. If you come out this way, you can see what happened to my KLR and the new toy in my garage I can't reveal what it is until I'm ready to put it on the dirt.

How about a proper hint other than "go find an airplane boneyard that has this particular run-down plane in it?"

I'm guessing the plane is an old WWII era bomber, judging by what appears to be a refueling nozzle forward of the cockpit, and the wing-mounted propeller engines being that close to the fuselage tells me it's probably a relatively small plane without a very large wingspan.

Google Earth scans of Goodyear and Luke don't have anything nearly like this plane. The only prop at Goodyear is much too new, and the engines are invisible from the cockpit. Buckeye has a B26 at their entrance, but that's not a B26 yoke and I think the engines are still too far back to be visible from the cockpit like this.

I didn't know they did air to air refueling in WWII.

Helps to know yer planes on this one. I thought about asking around about that. I suppose you filled in about all Id be able to find.

From Wikipedia...
XXXX XXXXX is a private-use airport owned and operated by the Gila River Indian Community... It is used for cropdusting and air charter operations, with no scheduled commercial services.

By 2007, the Gila River Indian Community evicted all commercial tenants from the property in the hopes of turning the airfield into a casino

In 2008, numerous aircraft were still present, including C-54s, DC-4s, DC-7s, PV-2s, and a Howard 500. Many of them have since been removed, with some of the old airport outbuildings dismantled, with further plans to expand and develop the airport still in progress.
