$100 Hamburgerski

A time-honored tradition among pilots is the "$100 Hamburger", a trip to another airport for lunch. The weather was so fantastic on Sunday that we decided to take Mi-2 Bord 211 out to get a Hamburgerski.

The Mil Mi-2 is a bit slow for cross country flight, but it has excellent visibility from which to view the Texas countryside.

Because it is an unusual aircraft,
the Mi-2 becomes "an airshow everywhere it goes".

Almost before Bruce can get his flight bag out of the Mil,

someone shows up to see the little helo and its crew.

Of course, in Texas, barbeque is the preferred Long Distance Lunch of choice. Hard 8 BBQ in Stephenville has an excellent selection of sausage, ribs, brisket, and other meats.

The Hard 8 is legendary among pilots and this last Sunday it more than lived up to its reputation... it was necessary for all pilots to recalculate Weight & Balance for the trip back!
