Default Deep Dish Dash

50 and sunny in the upper Midwest today, so ya gotta fly, right? Bernie and I decided that it was time for some real Deep. Dish. Pie. A quick web search turned up a Lou Malnati's in the NW burbs of the Windy City, just a few miles from Lake in the Hills Airport(Tree-Chuck-Kilo) A call to the nice lady at the City FBO confirmed the old Crown Vic would be waiting.

We are Go for Lunch! Up to 9,500 over Sconnie to grab a tailwind!


The Mississippi over LaCrosse, WI


Who wants pizza??, this guy does!


Hello there, Madtown! No kids left at UW-Madison....


LOP Cruise - Nice and efficient!


Bernie documenting the event for his food blog.....


Leftovers smell great in the cockpit.....


Devil's Lake State Park near Madison on the way home...


Climbing out of KUBE where we stopped for cheap SwiftFuel on the way home......


Great Pizza, Great Friend, Great Day!!!

Hi Pete,
It was nice to meet you and Bernie at the airport today. You guys stopped at Lou Malnati's and you didn't invite me? I live about a mile away, Lou's is our go to deep dish pizza. You're always welcome to come over and have a soda or help buck rivets!

Negative GhostRider - the belly is full!

Probably best to turn up the O2 and avoid lullabies on the headset.......

Looks like it requires a ballast adjustment for flight home.

Is it just the oozing toppings hiding it, or did you forget to order sausage?
