Jan 5th Fly-out

Decided to change destination with WX minimal towards the lake. So with all the interest we made it short and sweet to Richard Downing with WX much better that direction. Food was great and conversation was non-stop!! 😂

Fly-out to Sporty’s 11/16/19

Sunny weather for a change and four aircraft took advantage of it. The free brats and hot dogs 🌭 aren’t served until noon, and I mean not a second before! (Little story behind that) so that’s why the 10:30 departure. But we enjoyed fresh donuts 🍩 at the FBO before we left thanks to Bob Erhard. The flight had a bump now and then, but the visibility was perfect. We all landed in good time for the tasty brats. I always make it a point to talk to the owner of Sporty’s, such a nice gentleman. He always remembers the aviators from “Nerk” as he says.
