Just checked, having seen differently last night and thinking late posts of big flights by 1-26 pilots would be cool.
The current top flight on OLC for 2019-02-09 is still Mart3 Bosman's 742 point flight in an LS6 at Darling Downs.

I suspect he is looking at US only and does not know Blairstown is in NJ.

Long flights in a 1-26..,,,,sheesh.....while I have done so, my body can't cope anymore......I still want to do a 1K from Middletown, NY as well as a diamond climb (last I looked, 6 in NYS).
Thus I can state I did all badges and a 1K from my home field.
Altitude diamond is very hard, 1K is a bunch harder.
The "real UH" and I have done almost everything from Middletown......

Yes, some I did was done in glass, but some were out and back so sorta negates the L/D..........UH did a lot from our field way back when.
UH diamond climb was was off field, his 1K was part of the "OMG" flight from Newcastle decades ago at a contest.

Regardless, I hope to sorta match him....this is all east coast.

Yes, we are related, so......yes, I am biased.

Anyone doing long flights in a 1-26.....kudos to them......I have flown against "the Schwartz"...... he is an ironman....

Hey Ron........;-)

Wasn't sure where they were out of, really did not pay much attention, I was only concerned about the USA boys. Those were two great flights in a 1-26. Way to go guys.

Come on up to the Mt. Washington Wave camp to take care of that diamond climb... not sure you want to start much lower than UH though!
