I’ve taken the latter part of this week off from work. I definitely need it. The pas few days I’ve been doing my best to practice for retirement. Though as you can see from my countdown ticker it’s still several years away. I got up before the sun each morning, hitch up my trailer and drove out to New Jerusalem Airport. Both days the air was smooth and nice. I guess the wind thought I was at work. The P3 performed flawlessly, the engine never stuttered or skipped a beat. Two days in a row I flew past a local elementary school and got the kids all excited. They were jumping up and down and waving. I waved back of course.
It’s a wonderful feeling to be just sitting up in the air in a comfortable chair watching all the commuters rush to work, watching food being harvested, watching life from above.
Yesterday I a local balloonist was out as well. It’s always fun to watch them set up and launch. It’s the only aircraft that is more trouble to set up than my own.
I’ll leave you with a few more photos of the past few days.
Happy landings everyone!
