Default Niagara Falls

Went there with cousin a while ago. Enjoyed very much. Planned to visit Cloud9 restaurant at Willamsport PA on the way.


Do you see how fat these blimps are? Our grass is greener and tastier blimps grow fast.





On the way up north.






Stopped at Willamsport for lunch. Monday Cloud9 was serving a party and general public was out of luck. We didn't have a desire to crash a party.





Went outside instead.









Crossed the railroad. I was trying to hitchhike but train didn't stop.





Siri, find lunch.





She found something a mile away.

Then we went up again. Cousin negotiated our way to the Falls. He can talk to anybody about anything and always get it. Me? Nevah.






His plane is very fast and he was orbiting high and far. I was just turning around my tail. NY Tracon guys call me helicopter for a reason










Then we departed via Buffalo to small field Hamburg. From Hamburg to Lock Haven PA.







Piper Museum was closing in 10 minutes.






We snooped and left.







It was a hot day but very enjoyable. This route we will fly again.

Great post Vlad. I love the comment about the fat blimps! That cracked me up!

We have a pretty fat blimp out here at Moffett Field but I'm not sure where it grazes at.

Default 0G0 For Buffalo Wings!

Vlad - If you are in that area again and you want to add to your "good food picture collection" (along with consuming some really good food), stop at North Buffalo Suburban Airport. From there make your way to Millersport Highway and Sheridan Drive. You will see a packed parking lot and a sign identifying the establishment as "Duff's". Great wings and easier to get to than "Anchor Bar". (Both places have great wings, by the way.)

I say all this because I was just there a couple weeks ago (flew into 0G0 but visited Niagara Falls on the ground).

We are talking about a guy who drinks the whiskey in his compass!
