Two of our popular Q&As: simpleflying.com/concrete-asphalt-runway-differences and simpleflying.com/aircraft-tail-paint -- but at least those two writers credited and linked Aviation Stack Exchange -- bravo :)

@ymb1 ah. I actually have had one of my posts on DIY.SE get that treatment several times over (to varying degrees of credit I'm sure)

This is not a question for the main site (i dont think): I was wondering if anyone knew of a forum for amateur airplane wreck hunters-- I have read obliquely that such a site exists but I cannot seem to find it?

@BtureP yeah that would be off-topic; also I don't know :D first time I hear about plane wreck hunters -- maybe somebody does
at the linked timestamp, what did the right seat pilot say to ATC?
[tail number] [be-lowin]??
that's an airport with a Garmin center, and they were demoing a missed approach, VFR
I thought it would be something like: on final, request practice missed approach
.65 clearly states:
> VFR aircraft are not automatically authorized to execute the missed approach procedure. This authorization must be specifically requested by the pilot and approved by the controller
and the ATC is not the laid-back type; when they were told to hold short before takeoff, a nonstandard reply was met with "readback hold short instruction" :D
reply was : "[tail number] runway 13 wind calm for the missed"; so he clearly understood the request
wonder what that single-word request was
