Default YOU NEVER NOW WHO YOU MIGHT SEE ON A SATURDAY

Nice to see Gary Platner out and about exercising “Smokey” on Saturday morning.
It pays to get your flying in early this time of the year in Texas as you can probably tell from the long early morning shadow.




I actually picked up Gary’s voice in air and then saw his tail number on my Aera 660 via ADS-B.
We were both headed for the gas pump at Bridgeport (KXBP). I won Fuel was $3.75/gal.



It got busy there with an RV-6 and Apache already fueling, myself and Gary next, and
then an award winning Cessna 170B pulling up and two more planes in the pattern.
