My First Ride in the Super-8
Yesterday Mike sent me an e-mail asking me if I wanted to go flying today. Uuhhh yeah. Anyway....in case you're curious...this is the view from the back of an RV-8. The side-by-sides are definately better for the passenger and this reaffirmed my SBS decision for Jaime's sake.
Anyway...the purpose of today's flight was to go over to Spring Valley (a nice little grass strip about 5 minutes away by RV) to a cookout they were having. It was great fun.
This picture was taken on the way back as MIke was practicing the ILS into 25. The LCD displays got washed out in this photo, but the top center screen is the GRT EFIS and it has the HITS (highway-in-the-sky) guiding us right in...absolutely beautiful.
Here's a picture of the plane I snagged from Mike's site. Yes...it's a long cowl 'cause he's hiding a 540 in that thing.
