Didn’t Tuco say, “If you’re gonna look, look. If you’re gonna fly, fly!”? Somethin like that.But you got over it when you went flying, while he sat and cleaned/polished, right? I almost hope I DON'T win the EAA "perfectly restored Cub" because I'd be afraid to fly it, lest I hit a bug or something.
I cleaned the leading edges of Rags' (wife's pet name for the plane) wings after my recent flight review, and the airplane lost about 5 lbs empty weight... And yes, I do the same after every flight. Seems like we went directly from "winter" to "summer heat and bug season" without anything in between this year... These are little tiny things that just leave black dots all over everything.
