My friend, David, took me flying in his Luscombe L8E and Col. Joe’s Piper Cub J3. I have wanted to do this my whole life. Here are the photos: (Click on picture for larger view)
Wow! That must have been a tremendous ride and exciting. I think I would have felt like a bird flying high above everything. Thanks for sending it.
Looks like a heck of an experience there Syd! Glad you got to enjoy it, and g
Ad you shared it!
It was. The only problem now is that I’m trying to figure out how to get a pilot’s license.
Hey there Syd,
These pics are wonderful. I almost feel like I am up in the air with you on some of these shots…incredible! Brings back memories of my friend’s father’s plane and the rides we took over northern NJ and NY!! A little discomforting and disorienting at first, but I quickly adjusted on my first flight when I saw the views…exhilarating to say the least.
Thanks for sharing your aerial adventures Mr. Red Baron!!
I actually got some stick time in the Cub although Col. Joe was watching me like a hawk and I doubt that he ever completely removed his hands from the controls. I have both of these planes in Flight Simulator and have been practicing with them, so I had an idea of what to expect.
Looks like fun. Have you been able to get the smile off your face yet?
