Bill's place is indeed a fun spot for photography.






While the gurus are arguing on the size of modern iGates







I relaxed from the turbulent flight.






An actress at the background was operating a grill. What a scent! After burgers were consumed we went for a walk. What Bill calls "prone out on the runway" was actually a grass measurement.
This is an altitude of 1 inch AGL. Does it look like corn at Salmon Farm in August?






This is a good caliber.








Instead of scheduled 30 minute stop we stayed over 1 hour. Enjoyed tremendously.






Bill advised us on departure and up we go separate ways. Glen is flying home and I go to KFFA First Flight Airport. Need to burn all that gas I got for cheap at 12VA.






Circle of honor and couple extra beacons for his new iGate. Let the bumpiness begin... See you soon Hop Along!

Default KFFA

I got out of turbulence after 12,000' winds were pushing really good.






Glen won the race by whopping 2 kts as relayed via a datalink.






After a leg of 1 hour and a change.







Hi First Flight. Been a while...






How are you doing guys...







I just got here from Hop Along...






All right nice talking to you good job!








Walk around the hill







and out. Back to hand flying and APRS painting. Below is the work of 6.3 hours.







It was one of those great days of flying thank you Bill for the invite and thank you Glen for bringing your beautiful aircraft to such a picturesque place. See you on Big Fifty!

Dang Vlad, I have to make it to KFFA when I'm passing by next time. Never been but "Sassy" keeps dipping that way every time I wing by.

Photos look great. "Maybe I should have been a truck driver/photographer Mav."

Default Lorri and I would be all in

for a trek to FFA and W95 if the timing was right. Overnight at Ocracoke would be great as well.

I'd like a tailwind like Vlad had, but the return trip would be a bit less fun.

Bill's new RV shop looks nice from the air.
