Thanks, plays well on my laptop.
China is such a sweet dog.
Great video, and so many dogs helped.
Thanks to you, and so many others, giving the gift of life.

Bill,

Sorry that you had that experience. The Young Eagles and Pilots 'n' Paws are both worthy efforts and everyone deserved to get airborne in a timely fashion. I guess it was tough for the tower to make that happen.

At the same time, I have to laugh. The situation you described is par for the course at my airport. it's not unusual for me to be cleared number 10 behind the Falcons, Citations, King Airs, TBM's and all the rest. You boys back east with your single strip airports and grass strips (which we don't have in Colorado) are very spoiled.

Keep the blue side up,

Joe

Bill,

Yes, I sat in line for 15 minutes awaiting departure. It all worked out nicely.

There were a few wonderful factors that worked together for all of us:

- I thought the ground and tower controllers did a marvelous job working planes in and out of the two runways.

- Luckily this wasn't July, and it was only 70 dF, so I didn't bake inside the canopy.

- I've also flown for YE....a wonderful experience every time.

- There are many opportunities to do good things with these great planes of ours. These kinds of activities are ways of giving back and giving thanks for being blessed with an airplane and the ability to fly it.
