This is our first flight after the time has changed, and with
more light in the evenings, this equates to a longer flying day.
Now if we could just get those Avgas prices to lower a bit, more
in line with car gas prices, it wouldn't be so painful after the flight.
Regardless, fuel was burnt today and as usual, the rewards
were great with clear skies and endless views. I hope you
enjoy today's selection of (39) aerial photos:
