Start-up and then taxi to the runway for departure. But... someone didn't put the fuel cap on! I only noticed it when I was looking at my photos when I got home. This is a very nice airport, with a good terrace and restaurant.

Very nice picture Kas. Unusual close up of this classic Whichita spam can. The pilot seems to have fallen asleep and forgot to put on his fuel cap properly. But he flies the aircaft that can take it all ;-)

Could you not have lost the fuel in your right tank due to the low pressure on the upper wing surface? Surprised the photographer never spotted it

The pilot looks like he's asleep, he must have been during the preflight check as well!
