I gave the used wing rib station 2.5 to Mark Wainwright to use and he had some fiberglass fairings to offer in return, which I promptly forgot at the airport, DOH! That was a nice gesture though. After lunch, Doug Henson was nice enough to offer a ride for Stephanie in his Falco. As a special bonus, I asked Dan Dorr if I could go up with him and get some photos in formation and he obliged. How cool! Here are some good shots from the flight.
The afternoon wind had picked up before our flight so it was a little bumpy and we had also just eaten lunch but it wasn't too bad I thought. Stephanie said she had a great time up in the air. She enjoyed the flying and was not scared at all. She got a little queasy at the very end but it was a bumpy flight with some good maneuvers, so it wasn't unexpected. All in all, a very good first experience. I was just glad she didn't hate it and wasn't terrified at all. A good start!
Special thanks to Doug and Dan who were kind enough to make the whole experience happen. Hopefully one day, I can return the favor to someone. Here's a short movie of the low formation pass we did. I was running out of camera memory so this was all I got.
