N7598U goes in for it's annual checkup!

So, my Cessna 150 (I own two airplanes, the other is a Mooney M20) is going through it's annual ...

Jared and I went to the airport last Saturday and with our A&P Roberto we opened up all the inspection panels, tore out the interior and so on. That took about two hours or so!

Today Roberto did the inspection of the fuselage which turned out great. I thought I'd share a few pictures with you...

Here is N7598U from her port side. Note the ladder holding up the back end. This was because my son Jared was in the back pulling out all the inspection plates and interior... He's heavy enough that when he's at the back of the airplane it would tip!!



This is from the interior of the airplane looking back towards the tail section. Perhaps not exciting... :-)



Here is where I am usually sitting.... seats and carpet removed for inspection ...



DIRTY CARPET!! Needs replaced badly so I'm going to see if I can't find some...



Roberto my trusty A&P mechanic doing the annual!!



Ok, so this isn't related to Oracle Database 11g but there you are, proof that my life is about more than Oracle!

Well I'm trying to put together a blog piece about using the FAA registration data from http://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/aircraft_certification/aircraft_registry/releasable_aircraft_download/ as a demo database.
That will sort of tie the topics together....

Ah yes, the "other woman" in my husband's life.

I look a lot better in a dress, though. :-)

No doubt, you DO look much better in a dress my baby... in fact you look better overall than any old airplane (or anything else for that matter!)
