The Boy Flys!

My son really hasn't expressed an interest in flying and I haven't encouraged it either. It's a tough life. His gifts and talents lie elsewhere. But I had to fly an airplane on Saturday to break in a new engine. 45 minutes of running high power just flying around to nowhere in particular. My wife said to take the boy. I figured he'd be bored but he perked right up when I asked him.

Out to the airport we went. Hopped in and took off. Not a bad day...a little rain around the hills but the valley was fairly clear. I showed him the inside of a cloud, we circled around Red Bluff, looked at our old house in Shasta Lake City, flew over his school and I let him fly a bit.

Here's some pics...
