Hi all,

When I heard about the Sundowner wanting to turn back
on take off at Virginia Beach, I thought of an
incident I have shared with this group before, with
Sundowner drivers, but wanted to again. Years ago, on
a hot humid day, in Florida, in my 78 C23, on take
off, full throttle, my engine lost power. I set up for
landing on a road a little to the right, checked fuel
and switches, and then pulled carb heat. Got the power
back just in time. Landed at Fort Pierce, fueled, and
took off for the islands, and it happened again. This
time I was ready for it, and got it back right away.
In the 2000 hrs I had in that Sundowner, I had carb
ice at lot of diferent times, but those were the only
times at full throttle. I don't know if the Sundowner
is more prone to this, but thought I would share it
again. I haven't looked it up, but I'm sure it was
humid in Virginia Beach the other day, and can't know
if thats what happened, I just know it can.
