I have a petroleum engineer friend in Tulsa who built and maintains his own airplane. He goes to the fly in convention every year somewhere in Wisconsin. He spends a lot of time on his plane. He gets a lot of satisfaction working on that plane.
<<<Has IFNY Management or Staff LEAKED information to fellow CRONIES to SHORT THIS PIG?
Well, if there is one thing I have learned in my years of trading.....look for the spike in short interest vs natural gas pricing. There is almost 100% correlation to a growing number of open interest short contracts signalling a gas move to a higher price is about to occur. Likewise, a growing short-base for IFNY is probably signalling a contrarian move upwards is about to begin.....spikes in short interest are almost always a good time to buy. All IMHO.
The fly in convention that your engineer friend goes to is called: The EXPERIMENTAL AIRCRAFT ASSOCIATION Fly-In in Oshkosh, WI in July. Its located just off of highway 41, south of Oshkosh. You can see it from the highway. The Experimental Aircraft Association (EEA for short) in the largest fly-in in the world. You should see these planes flying overhead, there beautiful, but loud.
Thanks, GaPL, and BShaef. I've been reading the EAA sight and have friends of friends who have built planes. Right now, I'm building a boat (just a small one) but it's taking longer than it ought (perhaps because I have two young children at home).
Anyway, my thought is to build something with either an open cockpit, or a very slow stall speed and short take off roll. The idea would be to land on a tiny little piece of ground near a home out in the country. I want to fly to have fun, not because I have to.
BTW-Recent Saudi instability is making the news. Should make domestic energy supplies move valuable.
