Sun-n-Fun 2006 Day 1
Today Jaime and I blasted off for Sun-n-fun. I flew with Mike "Kahuna" Stewart and Jaime flew with Danny "Speedy" Kight. Danny had to finish up some loose ends at work so he actually came over to LZU and picked up Jaime in the afternoon, whereas Mike and I blasted off at 6 am. THANKS TO MIKE AND DANNY FOR GETTING US THERE. It was awesome! Jaime took this picture on the way down. Yep...that's the gulf coast of Florida. I believe that's the Tampa area, but I'm not sure.
Another picture Jaime took as they were circling the lake. Danny and Jaime made quite a few orbits around Lake Parker. It was getting late and hazy for a while and the tower couldn't see folks very well so they started spreading them out a little more over the interstate, which meant that everyone had to wait their turn over the lake. Mike and I, on the other hand, just went right in. Mike is not a 'shy' pilot in the least. It's obvious he's very comfortable flying closely around other airplanes.
