Pretty sure they are the dominant carrier at Midway (Chicago) too.

Today's flight was a wash.  Front moving through Texas today.  Was supposed to go help load differently able kids for airplane rides at Conroe.

Went to airport.  Sat in Car and did weather stuff.  Decided not to launch yet.   A couple estate sales and walmart for a mouse.

Back to airport.  Got Al ready.  Made about 10 minutes of a 20 minute flight and the ceilings lowered.   Went down a little, then they lowered again.  Turned around and went home.

Hope the kids got their rides and a good time was had

Flew from NW WA to SE WA (Walla Walla) to watch 13 year old granddaughter's softball tournament.  Stopped in Pasco to pick up daughter-in-law and two grandkids for last 20 minute flight.

Snake River and Tri-Cities looking west on the way home.

There must be something wrong with my phone camera (and everybody else's) as I'm sure I look 20 years younger in the mirror

I know exactly what you mean about the camera distorting our pictures. I think you had a setting wrong on your camera. Fixed it for you.

Kids from my town played in that tournament as well. Hope your granddaughter played well.

We took a short flight to the Baytown, Tx. area today. Watch a little drag races. Weather in Houma, La. was IFR conditions. Cleared as the day went on. On the way home I took a few photo.

Sadly today's flight didn't include me. But the Mooney Caravan's Texas Wing did some formation work over Canyon Lake today. Rumor has it that AF safety-pilot "Pops" wrestled the controls away from Sandman. FlightAware tells the tale. 4069417d4a513cbd070733640e1c98ed.jpg

Lead was "Sandman" with myself "Rocket" as his safety pilot. Wingman was "Rhino" with "Pops" as safety. What a great way to spend 1.5 hours of AvGas on a beautiful spring day in Texas.

Shame I have to live vicariously through FlightAware.

Today's flight included my wife's first flight with me ever. She recorded the landing and was not nervous at all!

When was the last time you shared the radio frequency with a B-17 and a B-29, or shared airspace with a B-29, or parked on the ramp with a B-17, B-24, B-25, and P-51? For me it was yesterday, and it was awesome! A morning breakfast run to Camarillo (KCMA) turned out to be much more. Many more pictures and the "rest of the story" on my site.

Yep! :) And really all by accident... It was pretty cool climbing out of Camarillo after our little adventure and watching the B-29 slip under us on his base leg heading back to the airport...
