After the rain and wind of earlier in the week this weekend was calm and warm. I got to fly yesterday morning and gave the guys in my EAA chapter a chance to see how my new machine works and shoot some video. I don’t have that yet but you can bet I’ll post it when I get it. Sunday afternoon was even calmer than Saturday morning so I loaded the trike on my trailer and high tailed it to Oakdale Airport.
I set up on the taxiway because there was no one on the airport but the caretaker and me. After about a 100 foot ground roll I was up into the silky smooth air. I kept the flight short because I had other things on my mind. I had recevied some bad new just as I was pulling into the airport and it detracted a little from the flight. Still I tried to enjoy myself as much as I could before heading back to the airport. It was a short flight but it was beautiful. I enjoyed it.
Here is the ground track of my flight.
